Back to School & Ice Skating
6th January 2014
Back to School
January 2014 and it’s back to work for our students, especially 3rd and 6th years who will be studying for the upcoming “pre” exams. And some TY and 5th year students will be looking forward to the mid-term break in February for their much anticipated skiing holiday in Bulgaria.
We wish everyone the very best for 2014.
Ice Skating review
Before Christmas first year student Orna O’Brien wrote this account of her class’ trip to Waterford for ice skating.
On Tuesday the 17th of December all of the first years went on a school trip to “The Winterville” in Waterford City.
We hit the road that morning at 8.30am sharp. Two busloads of first year students, along with Mrs Power, Mrs Foley and the first year Year Head Ms Pickering, went on this trip.
We arrived at approximately 9.30 and started our trip by visiting The Winterville Toy Museum, which was brilliant because we saw many fascinating toys there. Next we headed to the Ice Skating ring. We each got a ticket and grabbed our skates. Then we were ready to go. Both students and teachers took to the ice and thoroughly enjoyed themselves, while Mrs Power took pictures of us – we particularly liked the photos of us falling on the ice.
After ice skating we were allowed to go shopping in the city, where many of us bought last minute Christmas presents. We left for home at 2pm and arrived safely back an hour later, tired but very happy after a great day out.
