Proclamation Day

Students and staff from Colaiste Ide agus Iosef joined schools all over the country in celebrating Proclamation Day. The ceremony commenced with the raising of the Irish flag, singing of the National anthem and reading of the Proclamation at the front of the school.

This was followed by an indoor ceremony which was filled with poems, songs and history chosen by the students. Prizes were given to the winners of a school wide 1916 Art competition. There was also recognition of students from the school who recently won prizes in National 1916 themed competitions. The final student presentation centred on Abbeyfeale and the local area and it’s connection to 1916.

Then teacher Mary Quaid outlined the school’s role in the 1916 Sackville Street Exhibition. This project involved students from the school and the local active retirement group researching a civilian who lost their life in Easter week 1916. The civilian assigned to the school was a Mr Donoghue who was killed at the age of 22. The next challenge to the school was to make a 3D house to remember him. Working with artist Eoin Barry the student group focussed on the fact that Mr Donoghue was a scholar and made the house from books. The house will be on display in O Connell Street Dublin this weekend as part of the Easter Rising events.

European final in Estonia for School Scientist

A very exciting science journey for a school student will culminate in her representing Ireland in the European Science Olympiad in Estonia next month. Emily McCarthy was one of 350 students from all over Ireland invited to participate in the Irish European Union Science Olympiad following high results achieved in Junior Cert Maths and Science last year.

In the first round in late 2015 she got a silver medal in the Biology exam and was invited back with 11 others to complete two days of training and a three hour exam in DCU in January. Following this round, six students were chosen. Emily is the only girl on the team.

In March there was further training in DCU and Emily who is a fifth year student in Colaiste Ide agus Iosef in Abbeyfeale, will now travel to Estonia in May to complete against students from all over Europe in the final competition.
