Literacy Week 7th-10th May
With World Book Day on during the Mocks this year, the English department held a number of activities during the course of four days instead. One of these involved speed booking. TYF and TYC were speed dating with books. The aim of this was to spend two minutes with a partner explaining their chosen book and trying to encourage them to read that book. The timer would buzz after two minutes and each person had to move on to the next person and repeat the process. There was some great discussion about books in general. 71% said the speed booking exercise encouraged them to read more. That's a promising figure!
It was a proud night for the TYs on Tuesday, 21st May as they were presented with their certificates at the end of year presentations. A trip down memory lane caused a few tears and a chorus of "Can we repeat TY?" The TYs showcased their work over the year, decorating the Aras with Junk Kouture dresses, wooden ornaments, and artistic artifacts fashioned over the last nine months. They finished with their own rendition of Riptide and The Fields of Athenry on ukuleles, which they admitted they'd been practicing quite a lot less than the performance suggested. The wee guitars went down a blast! Thanks to all pupils and staff involved in Transition Year for a wonderful year.
What a year! The pupils showcased their time in TY through a celebration of dance on Sunday 19th and Monday 20th May. 'Dancing to the Musicals' provided a platform for the TYs to apply their dancing moves and skills and they all rocked the Aras on both nights. Well done everyone.
Well done to the four teams - Acero, Cerasus, Bad and Boujee and Aphrodite – who represented CCS at the Junk Kouture Grand Final in Dublin, 2nd May. Their performances were outstanding! Congratulations to Acero who won the Glamour Prize on the night.
