Transition year students this week travelled to the Chocolate Gardens in Tullow. They watched a documentry on the history of chocolate. They also got to make their own chocolate easter bunny as well as eating lots of chocolate! Twelve students from TY also took part in a GAA coaching course this week where they learnt some of the skills needed to coach GAA teams. Finally the TY group also travelled to the GBS theatre to listen to a Garda talk on Road Safety, which was very informative and interesting.
Congratulations to Ruth Ní Chearnaigh, Clíodhna Ní Chonraí and Nadia Blanchfield who recently took part in the Interschools Showjumping Competition in Wexford. The girls finished in fourth place overall, and will continue on to the Finals in April.
Students from fourth and fifth year went to the Human Body Exhibition in Dublin recently and then went on to the Science Gallery in Trinity College.
Three girls from Gaelcholáiste Cheatharlach recently scooped a national award in the All Ireland final of Scléip, a national talent competition for Irish-medium and Gaeltacht post-primary schools. Regional competitions were held in January and February and the successful team from Gaelcholáiste Cheatharlach – 'Na Jaffacakes' represented both Carlow and Leinster on the day.
Two contrasting pieces were performed by the trio who were very well received by audience in the Axis Theatre, Dublin. The group comprises of Alanah Benton Ní Bhroin, Kaylah Benton Ní Bhroin & Tara Nic Aonghusa. The team was formed earlier in the year when they were also successful winners of the school's X Factor competition. Maith sibh.
