  • As part of our TY P.E programme we went to Achill Adventure Centre

  • We went for a whole day the first time where we had a chance to experience all different outdoor activities

  • We then had a choice of surfing, wind-surfing, kayaking and canoeing. We chose our favourite and concentrated on that for two weeks

  • Each week for our P.E class we travelled down to Achill for a lesson in our chosen activity

  • It was very enjoyable and we learned a lot

Galway Film Fleadh

  • We travelled to the Town Hall Theatre in Galway for the film fleadh

  • We watched two films called “32A” and “God grew tired of us”

  • Both films were very different but equally moving and interesting to watch

  • After the films we went shopping in Galway city which everyone especially enjoyed!

  • Overall it was very worthwhile and appealing

All very excited of the prospect at doing a TY musical. Firstly we watched the original version of “My Fair Lady” so we could an insight into musical

Auditions were held by Ms. Lee and Ms. Jordan. We were required to sing a song and act out a section from the musical

Parts were announced and preparations began

Chorus’ rehearsed and costumes were prepared. Art students began working on the backdrops and sets. We all had to try and look for props at home to make the set look more realistic

Main parts meanwhile were rehearsing in their own time

Finally as the day of performances approached we began to stay back after school to run through each of the scenes

A week before, we went to the T.F so we could practice on stage. Here we had the help of choreographer Hazel McGlynn. She helped to put everything together on stage and choreographed dances for chorus’

The night before the performances we also had a dress rehearsal to make any last minute adjustments and tidy everything up

“My Fair Lady”The Lead Up

“My Fair Lady”The Performances

  • First performance - for various primary schools from around the area

  • Tensions were running high and nerves were present However these were overcome and everyone performed their part well

  • Helped us to prepare for our bigger performance that night

  • First night went smoothly and was enjoyed by all

  • On second night there were a few hiccups but all was well

  • Musical was recorded that night with backstage extras

  • Performed well in front of large audiences both nights

  • Overall a great atmosphere was present from make up and costumes, to the dressing rooms and right onto the stage

  • Everyone had lots of good memories to take from our experience and will never be forgotten

Health and Fitness Workshops

  • Took place over two days with different workshops to do with health and fitness

  • We learned lots from the different activities and got to bond as a year group

Work Experience

  • We did our work experience for the two weeks before Christmas

  • Everyone was looking forward to getting an idea of the world of work

  • Placements were either for a week or two weeks.

  • A lot of preparation went into organising the placements

  • Everyone found it very beneficial and gave them a chance to experience different jobs

  • People were a lot clearer of what they wanted to do after school after being on work experience

  • It was very educational and helpful


  • 20 people picked to participate in volleyball coaching programme

  • First we were taught different skills and rules. We got to know each other as a group

  • Then we had a day of learning how to coach volleyball with the help the programmes leaders Mary and Graham
