Take Me Out

 The fundraising” Take Me Out” night for Immersion was a terrific success with a packed hall full of teenagers and contestants wondering who would get a date. John Connell and Aidan Giles were excellent MC’s on the night keeping the show filled with witty remarks, chat and ensuring that some of the boys got a date. Well done to all involved! 












Juniors Speak Out

Our annual St. Aidan's Junior Public Speaking Competition took place on Tuesday March 24th.  Contestants from both 1st and 2nd year took part with their winning speeches from their class competitions. There were a wide range of topics discussed by these passionate, talented speakers. The first year winner was Dylan Clerkin and the winner in second year was Ciaran McGannon.  All speakers were praised by the adjudicators, Fintan Roche and Donal Corrigan from 5th year along with teachers Mr. Deneher and Mr. Kelly.  We are lucky in St. Aidan's to have such a rich history and ongoing interest in the art of public speaking. Well done to all!


Sunny Glendalough

 The 3rd year trip to Glendalough took place on Tuesday 24th March 2015.  It was seen as a reward to all 3rd year students for their outstanding results in the mock exams and their hardwork from the beginning of September.  On the day of the trip, roll call was taken at 9am and we were sorted into our groups.  As soon as we were sorted into our groups, we were divided onto the 3 buses. The journey took 90 minutes each way, and we were able to relax and chat to our friends.  When we arrived at Glendalough, the scenery was amazing.

My group had ‘relaxation’ first, where we played football for twenty minutes. After that, we watched an information video about Glendalough and all of its history and landmarks.  This video ensured that we all learned something from the day.  I found it quite interesting. When the video was finished, we went on a walk around the visitor centre and then on to the upper lake.  We walked along the foot of the mountain.  When we arrived at the lake, we started a game of football and ate our lunch.  It was a great day. Thanks to all the teachers who organised it and supervised it on the day.

6th year Mental Health Day

6th Year Mental Health Day took place on Wednesday 11th March 2015 The day a resounding success and all the 6th years really seemed to get into the day, and they really embraced the new element of mindful eating. That should make for interesting discussions in class and new attitudes to food. All good for the mind.
