Monday 4th - Friday 6th February marked the beginning of our annual well being week. Throughout this week students participated in various activities and workshops. The week promotes a positive atmosphere throughout both school environment and work. Not only do we encourage positivity during this week but to carry on throughout the whole school year, bringing hope and motivation to all our students.
As usual Ardscoil La Salle celebrated St Valentine's Day. The Student Council set up their stall in the library, provided the free to all students, and later in the day acted as postman. This is one tradition that will continue long into the future.
On the 7th and 8th of February,TY students Kate Brogan and Paul Hannon traveled to the Le Chéile conference in Athlone. Throughout the two days, we participated in various workshops and activities based around the conference theme of " Welcome, Wisdom and Witness " and got to meet different students from other Le Cheile schools across Ireland. As it was the 10th anniversary conference, everyone was involved in preparing music or artwork for the anniversary mass as it was a special occasion. In the evening, everyone gathered for a big quiz and everyone had lots of fun. The following morning, we rehearsed music and singing for the mass later that afternoon. After the mass, everyone went for lunch and made their way back home. Overall it was a great experience and it was great to meet so many new people and get to be a part of the 10th anniversary Le Chéile conference.
Ardscoil La Salle is offering a FREE five week Social Cookery for Fun! Healthy Food Made Easy course on FIVE Monday Mornings

There is a dietician available - you can pass on questions to her through the instructor and she will join the class for one session if her schedule allows.
Mr Keogh brought the second year business class visit the Central Bank on Feb 4th. Rang Cara were invited along for the outing. After the bank, the group walked onto O'Connell Street to McDonald's for a meal before going into the Wax Museum. It was a great bonding experience for all involved.

During the month of January, Ms McCabe changed the artwork on the school walls. There was great excitement as students recognised their work on show.
Every year, students get the opportunity to take part in the school talent show, showcasing their amazing abilities, voices, skills and more. The talent show is open to anybody who is willing to put themselves out there and perform an act for family, friends, teachers and classmates.
This year we had a variety of amazing singers perform, with the winning act being Gaia Bettuzzi. The young Italian student earned her win by showcasing her amazing voice for all of the audience to enjoy. All were in awe of her pure talent as she rose that much higher than all the other acts.
