No Name Club National Youth Awards 2017
Congratulations to Aoife McLoughlin, 5th year who will compete in front of a crowd of 1000 plus at the No Name Club National Youth Awards in the Lyrath Hotel, Kilkenny. This black-tie event has been running on an annual basis for 34 years and brings teenagers and their adult leaders from clubs around the country together to celebrate the involvement of teenagers in communities across Ireland.
On Friday and Saturday last some Transition Years got ready to trek through the forest of our local Mote Park and on Sunday and Monday last it was the turn for fifth year’s to experience the outdoors. The girls took time out to complete the Bronze Award for the President’s Award, Gaisce.
This year’s magazine Macalla 2017 will be launched in the school on May 23rd and is packed full of interesting articles, poems and promises a few surprises.
Keela Farnon, a transition year student from our school has won a competition with graduate.ie. This was a free online civic awareness competition for Second Level Students to take part in and learn about important Local and National topics. Keela has won a four day trip to Strasbourg.
