Congratulations to T.Y. student Stephanie Curran who won first prize in the Eurofins/ Lancaster Laboratories Transition Year Science Essay Competition.
Stephanie wrote of her life on a farm to illustrate how science influences her everyday life and as first prize won an IPOD TOUCH, a week’s work experience at Eurofins Lancaster Labs in Dungarvan. She also gets to take her class to the labs for a tour with fun demonstrations.
Congratulations Stephanie! I’m sure your classmates and teacher Mr. Tommy Collins will enjoy visiting the labs with you.

Once again we are indebted to our superb Parents’ Council for their fantastic fundraising on behalf of the school.

Once again be sure of our enormous gratitude for the tremendous work you do.
