TY Pilgrimage to Knock & Croagh Patrick

E-mail Print PDF

On Monday 4th April  2016 thiry-one TY students departed Coláiste Choilm accompanied by Miss Kelleher and Mr. O'Hara for a two day Pilgrimage. 

On Monday we were given a tour of the newly refurbished Knock basilica and also the museum on the grounds. At midday we joined other pilgrims for the celebration of the holy Eucharist. Our day finished with a visit to the Cenacalo community house for reformed addicts whose motto is 'work, friendship & prayer'. We were humbled by the moving testimony of one of the residents who shared his life story with us.
The following day in glorious weather we followed in the footsteps of St. Patrick and climbed the 'Reek', or as it is better known Croagh Patrick.
A fantastic time was had by all.

            Mental Health Awareness Week 
              April 4th -8th CC/GC 2016
      Seachtain Feasacht Meabhair Shláinte 

As we all know, the key to surviving a bad day, a bad week or a difficult time in our lives is being aware of our mental health and knowing little things we can do to improve and maintain a positive outlook on life.
The Student Council and the SPHE Dept have created a number of events this week which will hopefully raise awareness among students and staff of the importance of caring for your mental health.
The Student Council have been inspired again this year by the 'Little Things Campaign'.The littlethings campaign highlights that we all experience difficult times in our lives and that when we do, there are some simple things that can make a big difference to how we feel .
This week :
1) The Little Things posters are displayed all over the school.
2) Positive thought posters are also displayed.
3) Religion teachers will organise a 'Random Act of Kindness' in all religion classes so that students get an opportunity to do something nice for their fellow students.
4) There will be a Random Act of Kindness board in the main social area, students will be encouraged to write (anonymously) acts of kindness done for them by others during the week.
5) The Student Council Notice Board contains all info about this week and also useful websites.

Three Colàiste Choilm students attended a model EU Council debate in Dublin Castle on the 1st of March 2016. As part of the debate, the students represented the EU member 'Slovakia'. Con Moran, Donal Òg Coleman and Hugh O Connor (T.Y.) were tasked with the challenge of adopting Slovakia's stance on the very topical issue of 'European Migration' and had to debate wether or not Slovakia has the resources to welcome immigrants into their country. The three Transition Year students exercised their public speaking and debate writing skills on the day.
