TCS - What's happening

TCS in Concerns Debates 2018

Debate run comes to an end

TCS reached the semi-finals of the Concern Debates series which was held on Thursday 19th of April in the Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan. Despite a well-prepared and spirited debate on the topic that 'Sanctions are an effective foreign policy tool' TCS did not advance to the final as St Kilian's were victors on the night. A wonderful run of victories for TCS led to them being awarded the Concern Debates Best New School Award and we are sure this group of talented researchers, speech writers and orators will be back debating global issues with gusto in 2019 and beyond. TCS Debate team will return in 2018-19 under the guidance of their teachers Donna Mulhall and Zara Blake.  Pics


 

TCS Drama 2018

TCS Drama

Act Up is an annual one-act Theatre Festival produced by Tallaght Community Arts for secondary schools in South Dublin County. For the second year running TCS Drama Club took part by producing and acting in their own one act performance under the guidance of teacher Katie Moran. Their very well received performance resulted in awards for Best female Actor which went to Trudy Nolan 3 Oak and the Rising Star Award which went to Joseph Collins 1 Oak.

We are delighted to see the continued success of TCS students in the Arts and particularly in Drama where TCS students have excelled over the years both in school productions and outside of school culminating in an IFTA nomination for 6th Year student Daffyd Flynn whose film Michael Inside is in cinemas now.
