STUDENT COUNCIL ELECTIONS
The Student Council elections are taking place in the school this week. Best wishes to all nominees and well done to the second year CSPE classes who have organised the elections.
FIRST YEAR PARENTS INFORMATION NIGHT
We look forward to welcoming the parents of our new First Year students to a special information evening on Thursday 18th September. We reserve this night especially for parents of our First Years, who have achieved so much in integrating into the culture of secondary school so well. Parents are encouraged to come along on the night with any questions or uncertainties they might have, and we will ensure that everyone is given the information, help and advice they need. Discussions will include study, nutrition, school involvement, extra-curricular activities and many more areas. We look forward to meeting our new parents on this evening.
SCHOOL SELF EVALUATION
The School Self Evaluation Report for the school community will be published on the school website, www.colaisteca.ie, in the coming days.
Transition Year students are going on an overnight trip to Causey Farm in County Meath. While there, they will take part in bog trotting, water sports and obstacle courses. They will also get a chance to milk cows and bake some homemade bread. Many thanks to the TY Year Head, tutors and teachers who are accompanying them on the trip.
Wicklow Enterprise Board recently visited the Transition Year students as part of the ‘Kickstart’ programme. This programme gives the students advice and guidelines in setting up their mini-companies.
GUIDE DOG VISIT
On Friday last, a working guide dog and his handler visited the school to speak to the Transition Year students about guide dogs and their work in the community. Many thanks to Ms. Cluskey who organised this visit.
