Geography Beach Trip

Geography Beach Trip

On Friday morning, March 14th, a group of 50 students and two teachers donned their coats and wellies for a trip to Clonea Beach. The group was working on geographic investigation course work for their Leaving Cert Geography exam. The students participated in a number of activities such as wave counting, monitoring the direction and speed of longshore drift, beach fabric analysis and sketching. in spite of the cold weather, all students were pleased with their mornings work and it made a "nice change from the classroom".

TY Fashion Show

Transition Year Fashion Show

Transition years, as part of their environmental studies classes designed and made costumes from waste materials to demonstrate the three key words learned as part of the course, "Reduce", "Reuse" and "Recycle". They really turned on the style when they displayed their creations in a full-scale fashion show with a catwalk, lights and music to accompany each outfit. The audience were enthralled and amazed by the creativity
and imaginative use of common materials such as plastics, paper and metal cans. Our compeer, Rachel Donnelly, gave an excellent running commentary as the models, both male and female, strutted their stuff in front of the judges . Many thanks to Ms. Ann O'Sullivan from the Environmental Department of Waterford Co. Council who presented the prizes and congratulated the students on a fabulous show. Many thanks to Art teacher, Mr Padraic MacCraith.
