Save the date!! Here at Ardscoil La Salle we are proud to announce that the social event of the year will take place on the 27th and 28th of January...the Transition Year Panto 'Sleeping Cutie' and Della's got Talent! This years Panto will be sure to raise the roof and have you shouting out "He's behind you!". Our exceptionally talented TY's, with the help of our very enthusiastic First Year dancers, are putting together a show which will be like nothing you've ever seen on stage before... and all to the music of 'Queen' and Freddie Mercury! Everyone is welcome to attend and we hope to see you there.
Our 5th year, 6th year and LCA students had a great trip to the Criminal Courts of Justice today. They were able to observe mock trials, speak to barristers and get a taste of the world of Law! They had such an insightful and educational day which will no doubt benefit them in their future career paths and choices!
We want to congratulate our 3rd Year and Transition Year students for raising a massive €1615 for 'Focus Ireland' by bag packing in Dunnes Stores in Donaghmede.
It was wonderful to work alongside Laura Horan, a past pupil of the school, who is an events organiser for the homelessness charity. Our students had a great experience and can't wait to get involved in future fundraising events!
Here at Ardscoil La Salle we are extremely proud of our LCA and Transition Year students. In the previous months they have been volunteering weekly with the charity 'Third Age' to teach digital skills to people in the local community who are retired from work. The Programme co-ordinator Yvonne Keane said of our students, "What a fabulous bunch, truly lovely, helpful, kind and very knowledgeable. They are a credit to their families and the School." The programme has been a tremendous success so far and we look forward to working with the charity again in the New Year!
This year at Ardscoil La Salle, we are spreading the word about the 'Christmas Shoebox Appeal' for Inner City Helping Homeless. This is an amazing initiative to get involved with, and the idea is simple! Take a shoebox and wrap it, marking whether it is for a male or a female, and specifying whether it is for an adult or a child. If you are wrapping a shoebox for a child, make sure to specify their age also. Within the shoebox, you can include a variety of objects: hats, gloves, scarves, socks, small toys, books, McDonalds vouchers, Smyths Toys vouchers, underwear, toiletries, chocolate, or Christmas cards. The deadline to hand in the shoeboxes is the 13th of December, so get wrapping!
From everybody here at Ardscoil La Salle, we would like to extend our thanks to those who got involved in making College Awareness Week a massive success. Our students have benefitted greatly from all of the talks and events that took place over the course of the week and we hope that the experience will help them in deciding their future paths into the world of work and study.
1st and 2nd Years went head to head today in the 'My Dream College' poster design competition! They worked hard and thought BIG to design a poster which displayed their 'Dream College' as a part of College Awareness Week here at Ardscoil La Salle.
A huge thank you goes out to everybody involved in making our 'Career Speed Event' an amazing success. We are especially grateful to all of the past pupils, Sphere17 Kilbarrack, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin Aerospace, Transport Infrastructure Ireland, Perrigo and those from our local community who gave their afternoon to talk with our 2nd and 3rd year students about their careers and college experiences. Our students gained an invaluable insight into the world of work and study which will no doubt benefit them in the future.
