Le coup de foudre cast pic

There was drama in the classroom in recent weeks as some of St Mary’s Transition Year students put together and recorded a short film as their entry for the FTA (French Teachers Association) film competition. “Le coup de foudre” is a story of teenage angst and unrequited love with a hilarious twist. There were lots of laughs and some stand-out performances. A lot of credit is due to the students who were consummate professionals throughout this project. Wishing you the best of luck in the competition! And the Oscar goes to…

Congratulations to Past Pupil-Sarah Baume L.C. 2002

Congratulations to past pupil ,SARAH BAUME(Leaving Certificate 2002)on the publication of her First Novel”spill,slimmer,falter,wither”Published by Tramp Press.

Sarah has been making quiet waves on the Irish literary scene over the past couple of years,but announced herself as a major talent when her story,”Sole-searcher1″scooped the 2014 Davy Byrnes Award.

With a wonderfully lyrical title presenting itself as the four seasons,this is the first novel of an ambitious stylist with an astonishing eye for detail and a clear passion for language.It offers further proof that Sarah is one to watch,but also establishes beyond doubt that she ranks comfortably among the finest writers currently at work in Ireland.

ASTI Strike Day-Thursday,22nd January 2015

                                                                                             14 January 2015

 

 

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

 The ASTI has informed the Board of Management that all ASTI members have been directed to take strike action on Thursday 22nd January. Pickets will be placed on all schools, colleges and education centres where ASTI members are employed on that day.

 In the case of the strike going ahead on 22nd January the Board of Management will not be in a position to discharge its responsibilities with regard to the care of students in its charge.

 The Board of Management is therefore requesting you not to send your daughter to school on Thursday 22nd January.

The Board of Management regrets that this course of action is necessary. The Board of Management has no wish to interrupt the education of students in this school.

However in the circumstances we must ask you not to send your daughter to school on strike day – Thursday 22nd January next.

Yours sincerely,

 Denis O`Sullivan, Chairperson of the Board of Management.
