John Doherty Memorial Walk 2016

On Thursday, 19th May, staff members headed for Glenevin Waterfall and the Annual John Doherty Memorial Walk. The weather didn't permit a tour of the Urris Lakes, but the waterfall was no less of a spectacle. Over €500 was raised for charity among the staffrooms. Many thanks to all members of staff who participated and contributed. We continue to remember John Doherty as a colleague, friend and avid hillwalker.

Softball a Big Hit with Transition Years

Softball - a cross between rounders and baseball...But when it's played by 50+ TY pupils, it's a different game altogether. The TY PE groups, marshalled by Mr. Spencer and Mr. Bogan, were recently introduced to the great American pastime. While the rules were implemented loosely, and the number of players on the field was marginally high, there's no doubt that Softball is here to stay. Huge entertainment value!...The TYs LOVED it. But they couldn't have loved it more than their coaches, who took every opportunity to get in the game. Softball is now an integral part of the TY PE programme. It was originally introduced as a gesture towards our Sister City friends in St. Charles (St. Louis), Missouri. Who knew it would catch on? Sure, most of the key rules may never be used, but that doesn't mean it ain't FUN! Thanks to Jim "Coach" O'Dell from St. Charles for the actual softball...which isn't soft at all...With the first swing of the Little League bat, the Carndonagh Cardinals were born!

Fourth Years Visit The National Gallery & The National Museum

Gallery Museum 2016

National Gallery / National Museum Fourth Year Trip photo album

On Tuesday, 3rd May, Fourth Year Art pupils visited both the National Gallery and the National Museum in Dublin. Despite some disruption in the National Gallery due to the highly anticipated Da Vinci Exhibition, the pupils were treated to an impressive display of fine Irish and European works. In the National Museum, the pupils got a close-up view of Ireland's most impressive archaeological finds. The experience of both the Gallery and the Museum will be of significance when the Leaving Cert finally arrives, so the notebooks and clipboards were out in numbers. Overall, it was an enjoyable and educational afternoon for the pupils. The trip was coordinated by Mrs. McDermott and Ms. McGee.
