A group of our 4th Years won the Margaret Farrell Perpetual Award, at the LEO Dublin City Enterprise Awards recently for creativity and industrial endeavour. They created a mini-company called Bow-Bows, selling a range of hair bows made from fabric and duct-tape, into very creative designs. The duct-tape ones are the panel on the at the bottom right of the photo with the girls at their stand. Our students demonstrated their business presentation skills, being finalists at the Dublin City LEO Enterprise Awards recently in Dublin Castle.

The Leaving Certificate Applied and Transition Year classes visited Titanic Belfast on Tuesday, 27 November 2012. The tour was a great success and has provided plenty of material for the 6S Hotel, Catering and Tourism, 5S English and Communications and TY Heritage modules. Ms Keegan, Mr Darbey and Mr Faherty paid tribute to the super positive attitude of the pupils who greatly enjoyed the day. The photo shows the group before they boarded the bus. More photos to come.
