PHOTOS: Busy Couple Of Weeks For TY Students At Presentation Secondary

Posted by


THE past couple of  weeks have been quite  busy for Transition Year students at Presentation Secondary School with a number of events taking place.

TY students from Presentation Tralee and CBS attended a Lenten talk in the Presentation Primary Hall with Richard Moore organised by the Diocese of Kerry on Tuesday last.

As a ten year old child, Richard Moore was blinded by a rubber bullet during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, but turned triumph out of tragedy through his experiences of compassion in the face of challenges, founding the charity “Children in Crossfire”.

Then on Wednesday two  TY groups travelled to Cork to take part in the Eco-Unesco Munster “ECO-DENS” in UCC.

The “H2OMG” group from Ms. O’Keeffe’s class have been researching the effect of fluoride in water and the “Don’t Panic it’s Organic” group from Ms. O’Donoghue’s class have been following the development of the school polytunnel.

The two projects from the school who participated in the competition last year won their categories and the “If you Poop Scoop”  group won the overall award.

The previous Tursday, March 7, Martina Daly of Kerry County Library presented used books to Presentation Principal, Mrs O’Keeffe and transition year students.

Students and teachers were delighted to be recipients of this extensive selection of young adult novels which will be dispersed throughout classes.

Classes will use these books as part of class book clubs, The Drop Everything and Read Programme (DEAR) and for paired reading exercises. English teachers Norma Foley and Joanne O’Flynn expressed  their gratitude to the staff of Kerry County Library for their ongoing support.
