Healthy Eating and Living Programme for 1st Years
Recently, our 1st Year students were given the opportunity to participate in a two part module on what it means to have a healthy diet and the benefits that this can have on one’s general wellbeing . This was extra special as the nutritionist delivering the programme was a past pupil of the school. The feedback was very positive our students were very engaging and were coming up with great ideas and solutions to various issues that were discussed during the modules.
Congratulations to Lauren Young and Caithlin Staunton who represented their county and won the Leinster u16 Championship final on Saturday the 13th of May. After a tough first half the girls had a vital role in securing a win over Meath with a FT score of 5 - 09 Dublin to 2 - 07 Meath. We wish the girls all the best in their All-Ireland Semi-Final where they will play the winners of the Connacht Championship on Wednesday 12th of July.
TY Lego Step Programme – Learn to Learn
Some of our T.Y students have been trained up as LEGO Mentors who lead and deliver sessions to new students coming into First Year and assist with the transition between schools.
Key Objectives / Expected Outcomes:
- To allow primary school students become more confident during the transition from primary to secondary school by attending LEGO sessions at their new school.
- To give students access to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects in a fun and interactive way through the medium of LEGO.
Recently students from Scoil Aonghusa Primary School along with their teachers attended a Lego session in our school. All students found it to be a very enjoyable and educational experience. A big thank you to all involved .
On Saturday May 6th, as part of our Active and Well-being initiative, students and staff from TCS took part in the Darkness into Light Walk/Run in the Phoenix Park, organised by Pieta House. Sixty-one students and 14 teachers signed up for the event which aims to create awareness around the issues of suicide and self-harm. The event also raises much needed funds to provide services all over the country to support anyone affected by these issues. All students and staff had a great time and were delighted to be able to support such a worthy cause. Pics
