TY Update & What’s On Next Week
28 Apr 2023
This week the TY’s had an action packed week full of future careers, leadership talks and even trips to Kilmainham gaol!   Kilmainham Gaol  On Tuesday TY2 and TY5 attended a Kilmainham gaol where they got a guided tour and learnt all about the history of it. They really enjoyed it and the rest of the classes will be going in the coming weeks.   OLS Careers Expo  On Wednesday all TY’s along with the fifth years attended the annual OLS Career Expo where they got to talk to some of the parents of the student body about their careers and what they entail. They also got to talk to a variety of colleges to see what courses they offer and what student life is like. A huge thank you to all the parents who gave up their time to come and talk to the girls! Here what some student had to say about the event:   I really enjoyed talking to the paediatric nurse. She talked about her favourite parts of her job, the new Children’s Hospital and college courses. She was really helpful and persuasive!   My favourite table was the primary teachers as they gave me a great insight into what being a primary school teacher is like. They told me about the travel opportunities within teaching and the importance of good communication and being patient.   Leaders on our Level  On Thursday the girls made their own way to DCU where they heard from a variety of inspirational people through the event held by Terenure College. We will now hear from Ingrid on the day!   On Thursday, TY’s made their way to The Helix for Terenure’s Leaders of Our Levels. The event started at 10 O’clock, and was introduced by Terenure TYs. There were 5 speakers from a variety of areas, Simone George, Ursula Jacob, Peter Cosgrove, Fr. Peter McVerry and Jim Gavin. The day was finished with a guided tour of DCU.   West Leinsters  On Tuesday and Thursday some TY girls went to compete in the annual West Leinsters in Tullamore. Congratulations to the girls who all performed very well and were excellent representatives of our school.   Reminders  A reminder to everyone that their Gaisce forms are now due so make sure that you have all the signatures up to date and drop into Ms.Phelan's office with the form so she can put it through the system!   The OLS Open Day is fast approaching us as it will take place on the 6th of May from 10am to 12pm. We would really appreciate it if as many TY’s as possible sign up to help in the various classrooms and with the various subject departments. If you have participated in the advanced barista course you can sign up to make coffees for the parents and prospective students attending.   A final reminder to everyone who wants to participate in the Safeguarding Training you must sign up and pay by the end of today as at the moment the course is in jeopardy of not running due to low numbers. So if you have interest make sure to sign up!   Best of luck to all our TY’s next week in their work experience and we can’t wait to hear all about how they get on!   Saibh Gormley and Maria Hennelly  Contributed to by: Ingrid Marron
