TCS - What's happening

Science Week 2018

Science Week Ireland, coordinated by Science Foundation Ireland, took place this week 11-18 November 2018. As part of Science Week TCS students took part in a range of exciting Science and Astronomy events.

TCS Stem Club took a trip to DCU where they had the opportunity to listen to astronauts speak about their space experiences. Students also viewed the Dublin lights from space and searched for TCS!

2nd year students stretched their science brains with a table quiz on Friday. For Space Week, Transition Year and physics classes attended an Astrophysics Talk by Trinity College PHD students about careers in science. 1st Year students conducted their own experiments in exploring the stuff of stars.

TCS Girls' GAA 2018

Despite an excellent performance from our TCS Gaelic Girls we were unlucky to lose to Lucan Community College 4-9 to 3-6. The girls put in a dedicated and committed performance and left nothing on the field. 

Georgia Mc Govern and Lauren Young kept the mid-field moving while Rachel Callary, Cara Holland and Shona Joyce kept the defence strong. Some great scores were taken by Sophie Malone, Caoimhe Horgan, Lauren Young and Georgia Mc Govern. The encouragement and drive all over the pitch was heartening to see! A special mention goes to our two goal keepers Katie Rowe and Nadine Raymond who both pulled off some very impressive saves!
