Transition Year Enterprise Project Display
Friday last, the 8th of January, the Transition Years held the annual Enterprise Display. Here we had the opportunity to display our Mini Companies that we've been setting up since early this school year. We all set out on Friday morning, displaying our products, hanging up posters and decorating stalls in efforts to make our stalls as vibrant and attractive as possible.
There was a huge variety of Enterprises, and we were applauded by Mrs. Hughes for having new and creative ideas, some of which she had never seen being done before. Teachers were invited to view all the stalls, and they voted for their favourite mini company. These votes, along with the votes of a second year class were then used to decide which companies will go to W.I.T. Sports Complex on the 23rd January. Here Enterprises from all Schools in Waterford and Waterford City will be displayed, and judged. It will be a huge event and WLR will be present. All are welcome to come down and have a look around at all of the fantastic ideas and products.
The qualifiers from Ardscoil na nDeise are Dungarvan Calendars, Lake Facial Masks, TY Turkmas, Loomolicious, Safely Splash and T.Y. Tinder.

Feast Day Mass to Celebrate 25th anniversary of Ard Scoil na nDéise
Bishop Cullinan has kindly agreed to celebrate our Feast Day Mass which will take place on Friday, January 29th in St. Mary’s Parish Church at 12.00 noon. We usually celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes in February, but the change of date is necessary this year because of the early Pre-Junior and Pre-Leaving Certificate exams. On the day we will be joined by many staff members from 1990, as well as local Mercy and Presentation Sisters, a representative from our present Trust CEIST and some other guests. Parents/guardians and other family members are very welcome to attend the Mass.
