TY celebrate Chinese New Year

On Wednesday, our wonderful Transition Year class hosted an event to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Their focus during this event was on the sharing of knowledge about the customs and culture of China. Each group had a stall which was focused on a particular aspect of China. The students at these stalls shared their knowledge with visiting students. On Thursday, TY students were treated to a visit from UCD Confucius Institute and took part in TaiChi and Chinese Folk Music workshops. Both events were thoroughly enjoyed by all and we wish everyone a Happy Chinese New Year.  



Leo and Connel visit Google HQ for Webwise Training

Connel Rogan Duffy and Leo Meenan from 4 Tesla went to Google HQ on Wednesday 15th January for their training with Webwise as Safer Internet Day Ambassadors of the school.  During the day they heard from previous ambassadors and their experiences, they shared ideas with other Ambassadors in training from across the country and learnt about some strategies on how to be safe users of the internet.  They hope to share these strategies and more with their peers in the school when celebrating Safer Internet Day on the 11th February.  We look forward to see what type of day have planned for us.
