To mark the tercentenary (300 anniversary) of the death of St John Baptist De La Salle there will be a celebration in Knock Shrine on April 6th 2019. All students will receive an invitation for themselves and their families to travel to Knock on 6th April over the coming weeks. Any staff past or present and past pupils and their families are very welcome to attend. Those interested in attending or looking for more information please contact the school.
With an early start of 7:00am on a Tuesday morning, nine Ardscoil La Salle students set out for Castletown, Co Laois on a mission. This mission was to represent our school in the Annual Lasallian Competition and maintain the excellent standard set in previous years. The theme for this year’s project was ‘Then & Now’. As a group of 2nd years, we created a ‘Back to the Future’ themed mode of transport. Our idea was to include three forms of transport that were/are/will be taken to school. These forms of transport were a wagon (past), an American School bus (present) and a hover car (future) with St John Baptist De La Salle as the driver.
For our second project, we created a timeline in photos to trace the history of our school over 50 years. We had great fun looking back over the photos and discovered some hidden secrets about our school. Did you know that in the early days there was no uniform? We also found out that many a famous faces visited our school throughout the years, including Mary Robinson and Ian Dempsey. It was nice to be able to create a snapshot of our school to showcase in Castletown. For these efforts we received a medal which we have proudly placed in the trophy cabinet. #lasalle300
Sadly, we did not bring the Lasallian Cup home this year but we had loads of fun creating our projects. It was an enjoyable day. Thank you to everyone who helped us in preparing our projects for the competition.
