'Future You' at UCD

tcs-ucd-2018

On Thursday, 22 March 2018,  our 'Future You' mentoring group went on a trip to UCD, where we got a tour of the campus and were given an insight into how college works. We got a talk about study skills and how to study effectively. We then went onto our taster lectures where we got to experience the course of our choice. I learned a lot about my course which was social science. It really inspired me to apply for this course. Overall this trip was a memorable one filled with new experiences, friends and lots of fun!

1 Beech make a book

tcs 1 beech

1 Beech got together with their Art teacher, Ms Gargan, and looked at the work of Vincent Van Gogh. They examined some of Van Gogh’s Paintings including ‘Sunflowers’, 'Starry Night’ and his ‘Self-portrait’.  They looked closely at the colours he used and his painting style of short brush strokes. The class was so inspired by Van Gogh’s work, everyone did their own self portrait which is included in the book.

The class then discussed and made a list of questions they would like to ask Van Gogh if he was alive today. They went to the computer room and used Internet sources to find the answer to their questions.

Back to the art room and they took another close look at Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’ painting. Each person made a ceramic sunflower to put into a vase on a Van Gogh painting. Well done all!

They went to the Make-a-Book exhibition where they presented their composition.  Pics

LCA5 Community Trip

LCA5 at Tallaght Library
On Thursday the 15th of March 2018, our LCA 5 Social Education class went on a class trip with their teachers Mr Cleary and Mr Doherty. They walked from the School down to Tallaght Village and Library. As part of their trip, the students noted the local amenities and were given a tour of Tallaght Library, with a focus on the local history section. The trip was enjoyable and will help the students with future tasks in their Social Education module.  Pics
