There was a certain French flair in the corridors of St. Mary’s recently as 1st years enjoyed a Gallic feast of delicious pastries and refreshing juices to set them up for the day’s learning. The mouth-watering aroma of croissants and ‘pains au chocolat’ wafted through the building as a convivial atmosphere reigned in Rooms 11 and 12 where a very enjoyable morning was had by all!
The fifth years students had an early start last Saturday the 6th, meeting at the airport at 6.30 am for an early start to London.
When the ladies arrived in London there was a quick stop off to London Bridge for photos, a quick bite of lunch in the Victoria Area and from there they were transferred to the Apollo theatre for a matinee performance of Wicked. The show was spectacular and thoroughly enjoyed by all as it was a first time visit to the West End for most students. From there the girls travelled for lovely Italian meal and it was an early night in preparation for day 2.
On the Sunday morning the girls met our lovely tour guide and we had a guided tour of London taking in all major sites such as tower bridge, Tower of London and Buckingham palace. The girls were also in time viewing position for the return of the old guard outside Buckingham
Palace to the barracks. After the guided tour the girls headed to Westfield shopping centre near the Olympic village for some retail therapy. This was followed by dinner and bowling.
On our final day we began with a trip around the London eye and a 4D experience prior. We then had the pleasure of visiting both the Natural History and Science museum before catching out return flight home.
A throughly enjoyable trip was had by all and we look forward to next years adventure already.
The Millipore schools science competition took place today in St. Marys with four transition year teams competing.
The first group- Kate Noonan, Emma McCarthy and Karen O’ Regan completed a project which studied “Catfishing” online.
Group two- Megan Harty and Rachel Hankard completed a study on social media and FOMO.
Group three- Maria Lynch and Laura Walsh made a fertiliser out of common stinging nettles.
Group four- Lauren O’ Mahony, Dominika Matczak and Bijoux Bunchou developed a high protein yogurt as a supplement for vegetarians.
After much deliberation the two Millipore guest judges awarded a second place title to the Fertiliser project and a First place title to the yogurt.
Lauren, Dominka and Bijoux will go on to represent St. Marys in the regional competition in Fota Resort on May 9th and we wish them the best of luck.
