Open Night!!

On Wedn Oct 24th Our Ladys hosted our bi-annual Open Night for parents and in-coming students! 

Miss Conway and Saibh Gordon dissecting a sheep!!...Is that a heart I see before me? Gross!

Our Lady’s College hosted a very succesful Open Night on the 24th Oct last. The school was looking resplendent on the night as each subject department put their best foot forward to welcome the parents and students who will be joining us in the coming years.

Thank God they don't do Home Ec!!

It was a busy night with visitors from all over our catchment area and beyond enjoying the many displays set up by subject teachers and their students.  The science labs were particularly busy with their various experiments, of which dissecting a sheep’s heart and entrails was the most gruesome!  As usual Home Economics put on a wonderful display with ‘Autumn Harvest’ as the theme.  Visitors were also treated to performances by the TY Music and Drama  as well as projects and debating by students of English, Irish and Modern Languages. The  History Department went to a lot of trouble with their state-of-the-art displays as did Geography and Maths.

Students and parents admiring the displays in the new wing!

Incoming students and their parents were very impressed with the range and scope of subjects on display and were particularly taken by the enthusiasm and competence of the students who offered to help on the night. The occasion proved to be very successful with incoming students getting a flavour of  the educational approach and ethos of  Our Lady’s College.

It was a great success and every subject department worked hard to make a lasting impression! well done to all!!

Our roving reporter, Aoife Barry sent us the following report:
On Friday 21st September, Our Lady’s College Greenhills celebrated the opening of our six new classrooms. A mass was held in the school attended by pupils, staff, invited guests, previous staff members and other members of our wider school community.  The theme of the mass was ‘New Beginnings’, which was portrayed through the art, music and readings during the mass. The vibrant, uplifting atmosphere at the ceremony displayed the pride and honour we have in our school. In the afternoon, the ribbon to the new building was cut by our past principal Padraig O’Broin, in recognition for all his work and dedication in obtaining the classrooms for the school. The day was a huge celebration of all the talents and capabilities many of our students have and a big thanks is owed to everyone who helped make the day a very special one!
