To promote the F1 In Schools Team in HFSS and create a "buzz" ahead of the All-Ireland final in May, the F1 In School Team, Torman Sonach, has organised a "Pit Stop Challenge" for the teachers to take part in. As the name suggests, this would be a competition to change a car tyre as fast as possible. 

In preparation for this event, we invited local driving instructor Shay McGann from "Roadwise Driving Academy" to demonstrate with the staff and F1 In Schools Team, how to safely remove and reattach a car tyre. A huge thanks to Shay for taking the time out of his day and coming to the school to explain the process the the staff and students involved in the challenge.

Stay tuned for the challenge and further updates in the competition to see how our staff got on! A warm thank you also to our sponsors, Connells Well Drilling, Jimmys Workshop, Celtic Safety Training and our main sponsors, Heart Safety Solutions. For whom without their support our entry to this years competition would not have been possible.

TY students continued their exploration of their chosen theme for the year 'Gender Equality' with the benefit of a class set of the stunning, Booker Prize shortlisted novel 'Small Things Like These' by Claire Keegan. Keegan dissects the silent acquiescence of a 1980s Irish town in the Church’s cruel treatment of unmarried mothers - and the cost of one man’s moral courage.

Thanks to the World Wise Global Schools organisation for providing the funding to allow students to engage with such important issues.
