This award was set up in memory of the late Mr. John Slattery, who taught in this school many years, working especially at encouraging the academic progress of junior students. It is given to a pupil in Junior cycle who has consistently shown a positive attitude to schoolwork
and helpfulness and courtesy to fellow-pupils and to teachers, even when the going gets tough.
This year for excellent behaviour, consistent hard work, unfailing co-operation with teachers and displaying strength of character in pursuing the personal goal of trying always to achieve the best possible academic standards, the John Slattery Award goes to A Jay Hoey
On Wednesday 8th May, Ardscoil La Salle students received a Trinity Achievement Award. Over 20 schools took part in the ceremony. It is a huge achievement for our school to be part of and it recognizes the hard work of our students. The awards recognize academic excellence and contributions of students to school life.
For the past ten years, I have been a member of Ardscoil La Salle’s Parents Association, six years when my daughter was a pupil and for the last four years, as my son is a pupil now in fourth year. As a parent, I enjoy being part of the school community.
This year, the Transition Year students were, once again invited to Verizon media headquarters for a skill-building workshop. The first thing I noticed was the space: it was really welcoming, and I was excited to see the rest of the building.
1st and 2nd year woodwork students won first place nationally, in the competition which was run by JCT and The Tree Council of Ireland for National Tree Week. The task was to create something using the theme 'Trees and wooden material have a unique relationship with humankind'.
Our students chose to design a project which would create awareness about our environment and the importance of protecting nature. They used recycled and natural materials and created a ‘Biodiversity Village’ with various insect/bug hotels.
Congratulations and well done to all the students for their hard work.
