TCS - What's happening

3rd Years in the Gaeltacht 2018

On the 10th of October, thirty eight 3rd year students, along with their teachers, travelled to Coláiste Uisce in Mayo to spend two days in the Gaeltacht. While there, the students had the opportunity to practise for their Junior Cert Irish Oral, speaking Irish while enjoying some water sports. They had the opportunity to try out body boarding, pier jumping, raft-building and team games 'as Gaeilge'. As well as two action packed days on the water, the evening meant an opportunity to practise our céilí skills. Bhain gach duine an taitneamh as!!     Pics      TCS in Colaiste Uisce 2018 video

Friendship Week 2018

Friendship Week 2018

Friendship Week took place last week, 1st to the 5th of October. The weeks events and activities follow on from last year's hugely successful Friendship Week. Students benefited from a range of activities as TCS continues to strive for a comprehensive wellbeing programme for all students, both inside and out of the classroom environment. 

A Friendship Committee was established which called to classes throughout the week and coordinated events such as the Friendship Quiz, Walk and Talk in Tymon Park and a film screening of The Bullying Project. Other activities were undertaken in SPHE class where First Year classes all received the same lesson on Friendship during Friendship week. Second and Third year classes wrote a letter to the year below them giving them advice and words of wisdom on their own experiences since they were their age.  Pics


 

TCS Open Night 01 Oct

 Open Night 2018

Tallaght Community School held an Open Evening for prospective First Year Students 2019 on Monday 1st of October. Classrooms, science laboratories, home economics kitchens and sewing rooms were opened up to our visitors as they toured the impressive facilities offered. 

The sciences created quite a show with experiments in action while home economics tempted everyone’s sweet tooth with their array of tasty freshly baked treats. The Art and Music departments showcased the talents of TCS students while students themselves were involved in introducing the three languages, Spanish, French and German that are offered in TCS.

An amazing display of student’s projects were presented in the Materials Technology rooms of woodwork and metal work and prospective students were given the opportunity to work with some of the tools to create their own pieces.

Extra curricular activities had their own display to advertise sport on offer such as soccer, Gaelic football, basketball, hockey, rugby, mountain biking and of course, swimming in our pool. The Chess Club, Lunch Club, First and Second Year STEM Clubs along with after school Aeronautical Club were introduced to the students and their parents who were all very impressed with all that TCS has to offer.
