On her way to the USA

Congratulations and Bon Voyage!

Here at TCS, we are always delighted to hear from past pupils. Hearing how their studies or lives pan out is always interesting, and none more so than the path that Shauna Griffin is about to take. Shauna graduated last May from TCS with a huge accolade under her belt as "Sportstar of the Year 2011". She left us safe in the knowledge that she had her college place secure through interviews, trials and good grades. This was a great achievement in itself and she went on to excel in her Leaving Cert.

Exams on the horizon

As exams approach, students and teachers may be interested to know about two sites that are making revision materials and aids available free online.

The first is which has been around for a few years now but has recently launched a free app for iPhone and Android - learn anywhere anytime!

The other site is still in beta stage, but has a lot of expertise behind it and again the stuff is free. Worth a look -
