Easter Break.

Easter Break

 

This has been a busy week in O'Carolan College, in which we have been completing projects, organising trips and celebrating our annual autism awareness week. 

 

We had many events organised for Autism awareness week. Our first years were shown an ASD related movie, a number of students addressed the staff about living lives as students with autism, a cake sale took place to raise funds for our ASD Unit, blue nail painting to raise awareness for ASD and a balloon release to finish out the week. 

 

Numerous other events also took place this week. Our student council and student leaders attended the Cycle against Suicide Congress on Tuesday, in where there was a performace by Kodaline for all the students. Our second year students are attending a PE trip to Tanagh for developing skills in team build, group-work and wellbeing. Our third years are also attending their ecology practical trip, in which they will put the skills they developed in science to practical use when studying habitats in Causy Farm. 

 

We would like to wish all our students a happy and restful break over the Easter. 

Broadway Battles success - TY Musical

BeFunky Collage

 

Well done to all our TY's who put together a wonderful performance for all our guests at the St Vincent de Paul theatre, Kells. There were four musicals presented on the night, Grease, Momma Mia, Thriller and Rock of Ages. All the performances were of an exceptional standard and choosing a winner was a difficult choice for our judges. Well done to the cast of Momma Mia, who took the top prize on the night.

We would also like to thank our team of teachers whom took part in the staff dance routine, and our 5th Year students who took part in a comedy sketch towards the close of the evening. It was a massive success for O'Carolan College, and we are delighted to have presented our talents to the local communities of North Meath.

Arts Week 2019

This week in O'Carolan College, is Arts weeks. We challenge our students to identify where the arts is in their everyday lives, and how it affects them. We ask them to imagine a world without music, without art, without films or without the works of Shakespeare, Yeator or Oscar Wilde.

Without the arts, the world would be a very boring place. Musics, drama, art, design, poetry, drawing and dance open the minds of our students, broaden their horizons and help them to learn and think creatively independently and creatively. They can give them insights to different cultures and can contribute to the promotion of a happy and successful life. 

 

We have many events on this week to engage the students of O'Carolan College with the arts. These include a music workshop, a visit to the local library, a school visit to our school by an Irish author, a trip to the art gallery of Dublin and an acculmination of the week's events with the Talent show. In our talent show, a selection of students who succeeded in the audition process showcase their various talents to the student body and prizes are up for grabs for the best performers of the day.
