Hard luck to the U16 but fantastic effort and well done to an amazing coach Dommie Mullins.
Congratulations to our Transition Year students who took part in the Student Enterprise Programme ran by the Local Enterprise Office.
Our Transition Year students entered two companies 'Sweet Surprise' and 'Pop Shine'. Both teams had excellent ideas and worked very hard creating unique and innovative products. Developing products from scratch and bringing their vision to reality was a superb learning experience for our students.
'Sweet Surprise' were winners of Best Display Stand on the day.
Well done to all involved and a big thank you to Ms. Lysaght and Ms Walsh for guiding the girls along the way.
We at St Vincent’s are proud to announce our inaugural public art exhibition which was officially opened this morning, Wednesday November 28th 2018, by former Lord Mayor Cllr Tony Fitzgerald at Blackpool Library.
Pupils’ artworks on display are the amazing creations of our 4th year pupils and they include paintings, photography, prints and drawings as well as a number of mixed media 3D modelling works. The exhibition will remain open to view for the month of December.
Cork student makes her dream world a reality with book launch
Thanks to The Irish Examiner for their superb article.
Elaine Garde from the Heritage Council engaged our first years in a lively energetic workshop about biodiversity and pollinators. The girls discovered the link between the letters of the Ogham Alphabet and nature, the relevance of the seasons and the continuity of life. They learnt the language of ecologists and the importance of bees and other pollinators to humans. They made mini bug hotels which they hung in the school yard. This complements the work of the TY girls who built a large bug hotel in September. Elaine kindly launched their bug hotel and commended their planting of pollinator friendly plants. St. Vincents are well on the road to aiding the National Pollinators Plan.
Many thanks to all students and staff for their aid in this project, especially Vivien for sharing her construction wisdom and skills. many thanks to Bernadette Connolly from Cork Environmental Forum for kindly funding this workshop.
