Proclamation Day

Like hundreds of schools around the country, Collinstown Park celebrated Proclamation Day.  Fourth year students produced projects on various aspects of 1916 in conjunction with English and History teachers.  These were displayed for the whole school in the Assembly Hall.  First years studied the Proclamation and then wrote a 21st Century Proclamation. These are on display around the school.

The culmination of the day was the raising of the Tricolour alongside our school flag and our Green Flag.

 

Tayto Park Positive Behaviour Trip

On Friday 19th May, First, Second and Third students and their tutors and Year Heads went to Tayto Park in Ashbourne on a Positive Behaviour trip.

Students and teachers had a great time and it was judged as the highlight of the year by many students. The photos below show some of the attractions.

 

Sixth Year Geography Study Trip


IMG_0548 Sixth year students with their Leaving Certificate teachers went to Wicklow for their Study trip. This is part of their Leaving Certificate program and the project forms some of the overall marks in their Leaving Certificate Geography course.  No student fell into the river although some got very wet.  A great day was had by all.

Glanmore Foods

IMG_6715The fifth year LCVP students visited the Glanmore Foods factory on Monday 7th March.  Glanmore supply all our school lunches and school lunches to many schools around the country.  The trip was organised by a committee from the LCVP classes.

Students found the trip very interesting and they have a heightened appreciation of all the work and care that goes into making their lunches.  The students are preparing a Summary report on their visit which forms part of their Leaving Certificate portfolio.
