ARTiculation – 7th February
Congratulations to Caoimhe Nolan of TY, who represented the school today in the regional final of Articulation. Which took place in the museum Clonmel. ARTiculation is an Art themed public speaking competition where students are asked to speak for up to 10 minutes on a topic, they have researched, along with a PowerPoint presentation. Caoimhe spoke about the Claddagh Ring. Her presentation was extremely informative, personal and very interesting. Caoimhe was very well prepared and got great praise from the judges on her confident presentation. Very proud and great credit to Caoimhe and a big thank you to Julia, Marie and Jane in the museum for hosting Articulation.
We are delighted to see our camogie players back training on the pitch again. We are looking forward to great things from these enthusiastic and energetic players!
