Category Third for Ciara at Young Scientist Exhibition

Ciara Gilmore Young Scientist

Congratulations to Second Year pupil Ciara Gilmore who achieved third place in her category at the BT Young Scientist Exhibition in Dublin. Ciara's project - Will White Wine Remove Red Wine Stains From Clothing? - made the top three in the individual Chemical, Physical & Mathematical section. Her proposal to investigate the reaction which occurs when white wine is rubbed into a red wine stain clearly impressed the judges, who had 550 projects to choose from on the day. It takes great dedication and commitment to achieve such a result and we hope that Ciara's success will encourage future young scientists in CCS. Well done Ciara!

LCA PE General Ed. Task - First Year Futsal

Report by Alysia Brattin Loftus

On Monday 17th December 2018, our LCA class, 5H organised a first year futsal tournament. To do this we each had to play a number of roles such as a coach, referee, reporter, photographer, score keeper or equipment manager. We wanted to do an event with first years because they’re an easier group of students to get out of class as they don’t have as many exams. We also wanted the junior students to feel comfortable with senior students in a fun way.

Picking the sport would be hard, not knowing what the first years were interested in. We decided to do a survey. Each first year student participating in our tournament received a survey where they could vote for which sport they would like to take place. They also got to vote to see if they wanted prizes based on teams that won the most games, that scored the most goals or that showed the best sportsmanship and fair play.
