Memorial Mass Blessing, Tuesday 15 November 2022


200 students took part in this year’s ‘Gaeilge 24’ Irish language challenge run by Conradh na Gaeilge. Students embraced the challenge to speak as much Irish as they could for twenty four hours. Not only did our students take part, but also many of our teachers embraced the opportunity to speak their ‘cúpla focal’. We had lots of activities throughout the day, like a céilí, tráth na gceist, songs, games, movies, yoga and meditation. We also had a special Pop Up Gaeltacht at lunchtime where our Irish language student committee ‘An Coiste’ hosted a quiz and music. We had a wonderful day and are looking forward to participating again next year! 

Thanks to Ms Laura McGlade and the Irish teachers for organising the event!

Our Annual Friendship Week took place during the week of 24 to 28 October.  The week was an opportunity to reflect on what it means to be a friend and how our actions make a difference to those around us.  We had a Guest Speaker come to the school to give a very informative talk on internet use/safety to our 3rd years on the theme ‘Be Kind Behind the Screen’ .  We also had many activities taking place throughout the week that included the 1st and 6th years coming together to make Friendship Bracelets, a very enjoyable Halloween Concert and then a non-uniform day on Friday – thanks to all the students and staff who worked so hard to make this such an enjoyable week!  A big shout out also to our Staff who embraced the Halloween Spirit and put on an unexpected Wheres’ Wally ? Parade on Friday! €1,248 Was Raised for Charity – Loreto Rumbeck – thanks to all who made a contribution. 

TY also organised Trick or Treat for Temple Street and raised funds for the hospital by selling goodie bags – well done!

We were delighted to Celebrate World Languages Week and this year we also had a Culture Week event which was a huge success held the week 17 to 21 Oct

We have a rich community of students from so many backgrounds and as a family we came together in song, dance and the sharing of food to celebrate.  The PE Hall came alive with posters, flags and tables laden with new foods to try and it ended with a chance to enjoy singing and dancing.  Well done to all the students who took part and a special thanks to Ms Meadbh Cleary who organised the event – we hope to have this event as an annual event each year!
