On Thursday the 13th of May, 4 Oak participated in a 'Fighting Words' workshop. Fighting Words is a creative writing centre established by Roddy Doyle and Sean Love. Inspired by 826 National in the United States, Fighting Words is located on Behan Square, Russell Street, Dublin 1. Due to the pandemic, the workshop was delivered online to students. The class spent the first part of the workshop together, as a group, creating a story initially through role play and improvisation. They thoroughly enjoyed this! and their imaginations were inspiring. They then co-operated as a class , developing characters, setting and plot, adding dialogue and editing as they went through the process. Each participant was then given the opportunity to work on their own, individual pieces of writing, helped and encouraged by Fighting Words volunteer tutors. They engaged in creative writing and created their own short story as a class. Overall, the students engaged well, and they enjoyed the workshop. Many thanks to Ms. Furlong for facilitating the workshop.

On Friday last, our two TY Drama classes under the expert direction of Ms. Gina O'Reilly and Ms. Sinead Finlay, got the opportunity to perform their chosen play excerpts in front of an audience of their peers. The covered tent proved to be an excellent venue for theses budding thespians to showcase their talents. First up we had "Candy Run", a comedy with a hillbilly twist about how a simple trip to the candy store turns into family mischief and mayhem when a prisoner escapes. Next up was "Mean Girls", a story about a young girl who has lived in Africa and has been home schooled, She moves to New York and enrols in a public high school. Survival of the fittest takes on a whole new meaning when she falls for the ex-boyfriend of the most popular girl in school. Well done to both casts on some exceptional performances. Many thanks to all who helped in the set up and tidy up of the venue. Particular thanks to Gina O'Reilly and Ms. Finlay for all their hard work with the students to get them ready.

Many thanks to Mr. White, Mr. Fitzgerald and Ms. Walsh for accompanying them.

Student Council ISSU Training

On Friday March 26th last, our Student Council had the amazing opportunity of participating in ISSU Student Council training. The ISSU (Irish Second Level Student Union) is the representative body for second level students in Ireland. It was founded in 2008 and currently has over 400 member schools in Ireland. The ISSU site (www.issu.ie) is very informative and from here, students can apply for workshops and events on a variety of issues. The training focused on team work and how to get the most from our Student Council. We also looked at ways to promote our council and the work we do within our school. The trainer gave us many ideas to work on and in particular, we are planning on having more of a presence on social media. This is something that we are going to work on after the Easter holidays. We also completed an exercise using a SWOT analysis. A SWOT analysis is a tool that can help in decision making. As part of the training, students were shown how to use the SWOT analysis to decide if an idea/initiative would be suitable to present to school management. Our business teachers will be delighted to hear that we will be using them going forward! The training was very insightful and showed the council ways to work effectively and how to work as a team. It also taught our members how to work within our school community in a respectful and desirable way. We took a survey after the training and 100% of attendees said that they enjoyed the session and would recommend it to other schools. To quote one of our members ‘A great time was had by all’. Happy Easter from your Student Council!

Many of our fifth year students got to sit back and enjoy a streamed production of Eclipsed this afternoon. Written by Patricia Burke-Brogan, and directed by Kate Canning the award winning play is set in a Magdalene laundry during the 1960s. The play is poignant, funny and insightful. It sheds light on the day to day life of women in the laundries, but it is also a tale of friendship, hope and survival. Students are studying this play as part of their Leaving Certificate English comparative study. We hope their experience today will enrich and support their study of this wonderful play.

Best of luck to the 4 TY Mini companies selected to represent Colaiste Bhride in the Wicklow County Final of the Student Enterprise Programme. This year, due to COVID restrictions, all TY students took part in the programme as Sole Traders as working in groups was not always possible. Students set up a TY Market Day in December which was a great success. All students prepared their Business Reports and those students interested in entering the competition sent their reports to be judged. Congratulations to the following four students who were selected to represent our school in the County Wicklow Final tomorrow.
