A little on Creative Science before we finish for the Summer...
It was a busy last term for the girls in the TY Creative Science module. They helped the Junior Cert students revise for their exams by making Biology, Chemistry and Physics board games which allowed them to have fun while revising. In addition, they brought first class students from Scoil Ide into the lab to carry out their very first experiment- ‘making slime’. Finally they held a science show for first year students showing them some fun science experiments. Have a lovely Summer - Ms. Martin
Leaving Cert & Junior Cert Students 2018
Lord, I ask You to help me at this stressful time. Help me to keep calm at this time, so that I can think straight and apply myself to the best of my ability. Let your Spirit help and inspire me, so that I can remember all that I have studied and put together my answers in the best way. Guide me in all my ways. Give me the gift of self confidence and assurance that you will hear my prayer. Answer my need and continue to guide me as I pursue life’s journey, Amen

A New Year Blessing - by John O'Donohoe
On the day when The weight deadens On your shoulders And you stumble, May the clay dance To balance you. And when your eyes Freeze behind The grey window And the ghost of loss Gets into you, May a flock of colours, Indigo, red, green And azure blue, Come to awaken in you A meadow of delight. When the canvas frays In the currach of thought And a stain of ocean Blackens beneath you, May there come across the waters A path of yellow moonlight To bring you safely home. May the nourishment of the earth be yours, May the clarity of light be yours, May the fluency of the ocean be yours, May the protection of the ancestors be yours. And so may a slow Wind work these words Of love around you, An invisible cloak To mind your life.
