The arrival of the Christmas season was marked at St. Vincent’s by 40 Transition Year Students as they worked to create a Winter Wonderland Gingerbread Village. The students put huge effort, skill and imagination into building and decorating their gingerbread houses which they displayed as a Gingerbread Village in the school. Fifth class students from St. Vincent’s Primary School came to view the village and participated in a carol concert with the TY students. In advance of the festive activities the primary students enjoyed fun and games in the school PE Hall.
The creation of the Gingerbread Village was the result of a cross curricular initiative between the Home Economics and Mathematics Departments. The design of the village was greatly aided by the students’ numeracy studies. The practical application of co-ordinate geometry, area and perimeter to design the village did much to support the mathematical theory of the classroom.
Fifth year students Weronika Chwastek, Aoibh Kingston and Ellen O'Shea recently attended the Open Day of the UCC / CIT Cork Centre for Architectural Education. The students were shown around the Department by College Lecturer Mr Kevin Busby. They met with first and second year architectural students and gained a valuable insight into the world of studying Architecture.
