NUI Galway Youth Academy Graduates 2019

Posted by Ms. Donnellan On May - 15 - 2019

Over the last few months Cathal & Evan two pupils from 5th class took part in the NUI Galway Youth Academy spring programme. This was a wonderful opportunity for the pupils to gain an insight into college learning. Evan studied Biotechnology & Biomedical Engineering –  “Biolegos: Engineering with the Building Blocks of Life“, and Cathal studied all about the Irish law system “The World of Cops and Robbers: Learning the Law”. Evan informed our class that he really enjoyed the course and over the 6 week programme they covered many topics about the human body including DNA, bacteria & repairing broken bones. Evan also had to opportunity to complete some experiments. Evan’s course took place in the new Engineering building on the NUI Galway campus. Cathal informed the class that he looked at many aspects of the law throughout his course including  jurors, cases and identifying what the world would be like if there were no laws. At the end of each day they would have a competition to see who could remember the most laws. The course helped Cathal understand a lot more about the legal system in Ireland. Cathal’s course took place in the Millennium building on the NUI Galway campus. We would like to congratulate both pupils for taking part in the course.

Video: Irish dancing, Gaelic football and other activities in Zagreb

Posted by Máistir Ó Beirn On May - 7 - 2019

It was a fun-filled week in Croatia – visiting Zagreb Zoo, Bundek lake and park by the Sava River, Veternica Cave at Park Prirode, Medvednica, Nikola Tesla Museum and coal mines.

The pupils introduced their Croatian friends to Irish dancing and football. We cannot thank our hosts enough (teachers, parents and pupils)  for their huge amount of work in preparing such a memorable trip and taking care of Aoife, Cathal, Evan, Kellyann and Ruby.

Thanks also to Michelle Gannon for accompanying us and being such a great help. The video linked to this article shows the broad range of activities that the pupils took part in during the week.

Video: First Aid Demonstration

Posted by Máistir Ó Beirn On May - 4 - 2019

Members of the Croatian Red Cross came to the school and gave a First Aid demonstration in the yard. They painted injuries on Cathal, Evan, Kellyann and Ruby who acted as the injured parties. Aoife can sometimes be allergic to body paint so she joined her Croatian friends and watched the demonstration.

Posted by Máistir Ó Beirn On April - 30 - 2019

On Monday we arrived at the school at 8.15am. We were officially welcomed by the principal, Mrs. Vlatka Kovač and the pupils from various classes performed song and dance routines after the Croatian and Irish national anthems. Then we were given a tour of the school and in the afternoon we visited Zagreb Botanical Gardens and a guide introduced us to the city and its history. The video below gives a flavour of the day.
