The Transition Year students are currently rehearsing for their Christmas pantomime, which will take place in St Marys’ Hall, Lanesboro on the 5th of December. They are very excited and are working very hard to ensure the show will be a success. All are welcome and we look forward to seeing you there on the evening!!!
Well done and congratulations to the TY quiz team who came second in the County Finals of the “Battle of Wits” 2019. They are now through to the Regional Finals on the 4th of next month!
Garda Drugs and Alcohol Awareness videos:
Our TYs went to the Longford Arms Hotel this Thursday for a screening of their Garda Drugs and Alcohol Awareness videos. Earlier in the year, the students split into groups and made videos highlighting the dangers of drugs and alcohol after being visited by Garda Mullally from Longford Garda station. Their videos were shown along with videos from students from all over Longford and we are very proud of the students’ hard work.
On Thursday the 27th of November our Transition Years received a visit from Ericsson Athlone. Ericsson are a leading software producer in both Ireland and the world and provided a fascinating insight into the world of business and careers in software engineering. Thank you very much to the speakers from Ericsson!
On Wednesday the 26th the Leaving Cert Higher Level English class went to see the Cyclone Rep production of Hamlet at the Mullingar Arts Centre, as part of their Leaving Cert course. They were accompanied by their English teachers, Ms. Farrell and Ms. Dalton.
Romeo and Juliet:
On Thursday, 27 November, the 3rd year group went to Mullingar to enjoy a spectacular production of Romeo and Juliet. They are studying this play for their Junior Cycle examination and we hope seeing it live will be beneficial to them. Thanks to Mr. McElgunn their English teacher.
