YSI 2013

On Wednesday the 24th of April, 2013 Transition Year students involved in the YSI programme held a cake/bake sale in the canteen. The cake/bake sale was held to raise money to purchase anti-bullying wrist bands.

ysi2013The YSI project is about creating an awareness and to investigate why the bully bullies. The YSI group came up with the idea of producing wrist bands and to say that we are an anti-bullying school and to also say that there is help out there for everyone.

Without the support given by the teachers/staff and students in our school, we would not have been able to raise the funds needed. We would like to give special thanks for all their support, to Mr. Keane for donating the products, Ms.Young for helping us all the way through by being our YSI co-ordinator, Donna for letting us use the canteen and helping us with the cake/bake sale, also to all the students and staff who purchased the cakes. We really appreciate all the support given as it is for a good cause.

Heineken Cup

Heineken Cup Trophy comes to TCS

On Thursday the 11th of April the Heineken Cup Trophy came to TCS.
This was a great opportunity for the students and staff to get their picture taken with the most famous and coveted trophy in European rugby.
The senior rugby team were first to sit down for a team photo.


After this, the trophy was brought to as many classes as possible within the short timeframe that was available.
None of this would have been possible without the efforts of Ms Clarke and Leinster Branch CRO Tom McKeown.
