On Wednesday 7th December the Enterprise Club held a very successful Trade Fair. Many of the businesses sold out. Among the products offered were:
Cakes (delicious) and competitions
Cake mixture and Hot Chocolate mixture (with instructions)
And of course, given the season, Reindeer Food
All students as well as Parents and Teachers were able to visit and purchase. The Enterprise Club’s next step is the South Dublin Enterprise event.
The Enterprise Club students are busy making their final preparations for the Trade Fair in school on Wednesday 7th December.
On Thursday evening 17th November 2016 well over 100 students turned up to collect their QQI Certificates and formally graduate from the school. They were formally congratulated by the Head of Adult Education Enda Kenny and the Principal Pauline Duffy. One of our Nursing Graduates Marc O’Reilly gave an address on behalf of the students, thanking on the students’ behalf, the tutors, management and in particular their families for all their support and help over the year. Kathleen Campbell co-ordinated the event and laid on refreshments for the graduates and their families in the school afterwards. The Refreshments were very kindly provided by Glanmore Foods, suppliers to the school.
Formal pictures of the groups are also in the Adult Education section of the website in the Gallery section.
On Wednesday morning 9th November students had the opportunity to abandon classes and have time to get to know their fellow students taking part in some different activities.
Some students took a tour of Farmleigh House before joining up with the other group for a picnic in the November air.
The other group took part in a scavenger hunt with a difference. They had to find various landmarks in the park and take a photo of their group with the landmark, as well as finding some bonus pictures, such as you can see, with a dog, Irish language sign, with a bicycle and a flower. The weather held and they joined the Farmleigh group afterwards for a picnic in the Pope’s Cross car park.
Coming soon: The Quiz………
