1st Year Building History Project

Once again our first year History students put on a very impressive display of their History projects. The theme was 'Buildings throughout History'. Their work was exhibited in April in the School Hall, much to the admiration of the older students  and their teachers. They have graciously donated their work to the History Room, which no doubt will be an inspiration for future budding historians! ( Ms. A Brennan)


Build a Bank

Transition Year students have raised €500 for the school Build a Bank as a result of students opening accounts for Bank of Ireland which was open every Tuesday at lunch time in school. There were two teams involved one representing TYPN and TYPS and the other representing TYPE and TYPN. There were fifty accounts opened in the school and students got a good introduction to the world of banking. Well done to all involved!




The Joy of Drama

St. Aidan’s at Axis 2015

On Wednesday 13th May, St. Aidan’s took up residence in the Axis Theatre Ballymun.  Two plays were performed – Drama Club staged their own version of The Field and TY Film/Music/Drama put on their own Original Murder Mystery.
Both plays were fantastic showcases of the wealth of talent here in the school. Drama Club’s magnificent performance solidified their already stellar reputation as actors who never let their audience down.  Joshua Doyle, in particular deserves special mention for his chilling, brutal and note-perfect Bull McCabe.
TYs shone in their Original Murder Mystery.
They had a great time and this really showed on the night.  With wonderful performances from all of the actors, in particular Mark Caldwell, Oscar Devlin, Brian O’Connor and Marcus Lynch, the show was a huge success.  The band onstage – Kevin Rooney, Jack Rice, Conall Cullen-Fleming, Luke MacArthur, Daryl Ando, Eoin Lombard and Greg Hossenny, were fantastic and made the play something truly remarkable.  The whole class were involved in making sure the show was a success, from acting and performing onstage to pulling the curtains, recording the performance and rolling the video footage. 

It was truly a night to remember.



Young Social Innovators

Sixteen students represented the school in the Young Social Innovators competition this year. They were sixteen TY students and they designed an app booklet to help older people use apps on their phones. They worked with DCU as part of this project.
They qualified in the Dublin section of the competition for the final. There were 60 schools selected from 500 for this final which took place in The City West Hotel. Well done to all involved on this project and to their teacher Mr. T O Meara.
