    Christmas Carols at Easkey Health Centre

    On Thursday 16th December Colaiste Iascaigh’s choir along with Ms. Hennigan visited Easkey Health Centre to sing Christmas Carols for those attending the centre. This annual event always brings great excitement to the students and those attending the Health Centre. The choir had put in time rehearsing and the day was a great success.  Those that attend the centre also enjoy singing songs and it is an enjoyable day for students and older people to share their Christmas experiences with each other. Colaiste Iascaigh would like to thank Easkey Health Centre for their kindness and hospitality on the day.

     

    Student Enterprise Awards

    2nd Year Business Studies students are well under way on their mini companies for the Student Enterprise Awards. There are 6 mini companies in total and some great ideas, the students are showing a real flair for enterprise and there are some budding entrepreneurs among them.

    They are in the process of market research and most companies hope to have the products on sale after Christmas!

     

    Karl Henry visits Colaiste Iascaigh for LCVP Visit In

    The 5th Year LCVP class as part of their portfolio must plan a Visit to the school.

    Our LCVP class invited Karl Henry from Karl Henry Fitness, he has also been on Operation Transformation as the fitness instructor and has his own TV show with Bernard Dunne on RTE called Ultimate Street Challenge, and this series is being broadcast at the moment.

    Karl Henry is an entrepreneur who saw a gap in the market and proceeded to fill this gap and develop a brand that is now known all around the country.

    Karl came and spoke to the students about being an entrepreneur, setting up his business and how they too could go about setting up a business. He gave them great advice and also doubled as a motivational speaker which was very beneficial with the Leaving Cert looming ahead.

    The 5th Yr LCVP class along with their teacher Ms.Byrne would like to say a big thank you to Karl Henry for making the trip from Dublin to Colaiste Iascaigh to talk to the 5th Years students.

    Water Treatment Plant Visit:

     As part of the Green Schools Programme all First and Second Year students visited The Water Treatment Plant in Lough Easkey. They were accompanied by Ms. Cawley and Ms. Sherlock. There they were met by Mr. Declan Keaveney who took them on a very informative tour of the plant. In the lab they saw the quality of water coming into the plant and how it was changed by different processes. The plant sends water to nine local reservoirs and they supply homes with clean drinking water.

    Youth Sport West
    Second Years enjoyed an overnight stay at Gortatole in Co. Fermanagh on the 1st of December. This is an outdoor pursuit’s centre which facilitated Youth Sport West in joining our school with two schools from Northern Ireland. They developed their communication skills while orienteering, enjoyed a trip to the Marble Arch caves and had the opportunity to do some mountain climbing. In the evening they played soccer with their new friends and had free time to chat and watch television together. This trip was enjoyed by everyone and we hope to have more in the future.

    The Burren
    The Leaving Cert geography students along with their teacher, Andrea Gallagher, travelled to The Burren in Co. Clare to do our geographical investigation on the Ailwee Caves in a Karst region.  All students thoroughly enjoyed the investigation and we luckily were there on a beautiful brisk November day.  The Ailwee Caves are now getting ready for Santas visit for the local children.

    French Film
    On Wednesday the 30th of November the L1 French class visited the Niland Gallery to see a French film called “Panique au Village”. The film was very interesting and showed a cowboy, an Indian and a horse trying to live together in a house. Thanks to our French Teacher, Mrs Kelly.
    Christmas Cards
    First Years were very busy designing Christmas Cards with their Art Teacher, Ms McDermott. They were also very successful in selling all their cards to the parents who attended our parent teacher meeting on December the 7th.

    Celebrity Chef
    The First Year Home Economics class had a busy few days baking Christmas cakes. As part of the JCSP Celebrity Chef Initiative, local chef, Orla Kelly, came in to the school and showed us all how to ice our cakes. They looked fantastic and our parents were delighted with our classy looking cakes and they tasted great as well. Thanks to Ms Howley for organising this.
    Girls Active
    All the girls are busy getting fit with boxercise which is being run after school for five weeks.
