Turas Malartaithe chun Vernon PDF Print E-mail

Cé go raibh ar an t-Athair Séamus, mé féin agus trúir daltái eile fanacht thar oíche I mBaile Átha Cliath,toisc na drochaimsire, is léir gur taithí iontach é an turas go dtí Vernon sa Fhrainc. Gan dabht bhí an bia ann thar barr, chomh maith leis an ailtireacht. I gcomhar fórmhór na seachtaine, d’fhanamar le teahglaigh éagsúla agus bhí am iontach againn leo. Bhlasamar an bia Francach éagsúla ar nós “Les Escargots” agus ar eile – cinnte ní íosfaidh mé iad riamh arís! Laethenta d’fhanamar i Vernon, ach laethenta eile chuamar ar thurasanna éagsúla go dtí áiteanna ar nós Páras agus Rouen. Seachtain iontach ab ea an turas go dtí an Fhrainc agus ní dhéanfaimid dearmad go deo air.

TY Architecture

The Architecture in Schools Initiative is a project set up by the Irish Architecture Foundation and the Department of Education to promote architecture in Schools. As part of the project each school collaborated with a local architect. Colaiste Choilm was one of twenty schools in Ireland selected to participate in the project in 2014. A group of twenty five transition year students were exposed to what architecture is through a series of design workshops and tutorials. As part of the programme the students did field trips to the Glucksmann Gallery, the National Sculpture Factory and the Architecture School; Cork College of Architecture Education on Copley Street.

Seachtain na Gaeilge 2014 PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, 11 March 2014 10:34

Tá Seachtain na Gaeilge bualite linn faoi dheireadh! i mbliana, táimid ag iarraidh go mbeidh gach duine páirteach! Tapaigh an deis chun do ‘chúpla focal’ a úsáid. Is é Téama na Seachtaine seo na ‘Draíocht’. Is cuid tábhachtach í an Ghaeilge dúinn sa scoil agus ba chóir go mbeimid bróduil aisti agus mbeimid sásta í a labhairt. Tá sé mar aidhm againn an Ghaeilge a spreagadh i measc scoláirí agus na múinteoirí araon. Mar sin, na déan dearmad pé cúpla focal atá agat féin a úsáid. Bígí bródúil as do Ghaeilge, bígí brodúil as bhur n-iarrachtaí í a labhairt agus bígí bródúil as an gcultúr.
Its Seachtain na Gaeilge Time!. This year we are hoping to involve and encourage everyone, both students and teachers alike, to use whatever ‘Cúpla Focal’ they have. The theme for the week is ‘Draíocht’  

German Exchange with Bremen PDF Print E-mail

The German students arrived in Dublin on 26th Feb and travelled on to Cork on 28th.  They spent the weekend with their Irish families before embarking on various trips the following week (3rd March - 6th March) and returning to Bremen on 7th March.
Mon 3rd March
The German intrepid explorers went on safari to Clonakilty where they tracked down various animals including tigers and elephants.  There were some great photos of their exploits and the locals joined in the fun also.  We finished off the day at Inchdoney beach where we were blessed with such fine weather that some hardy souls went swimming.
Tuesday 4th March
Muckross House and Killarney National Park were beautiful despite the very wet morning.  We enjoyed a very interesting tour delivered by Mary and were joined by two tourists from U.S.. The rain stopped and the sun came out which enabled us to walk through the park to Torc Waterfall.  Due to the recent very heavy rainfalls the waterfall looked great and many photos were taken.  We stopped into the Killarney Outlet Centre on the way back and everyone snoozed on the bus on the way home.
