We would like to thank all those who have supported the musical to date. We have put on a matinee performance for local schools and have had two late performances on Monday and Tuesday. Unfortunately, all tickets for the remaining two nights have been sold. So unless you have tickets bought already there's no point in queuing at the doors tonight or tomorrow (Wednesday or Thursday).
Thank you for your understanding.
The PE Department have been involved in the ‘Get Going Get Rowing’ Schools Programme in association with Rowing Ireland for the last 5 years. It has been a highly successful programme involving coaches from Rowing Ireland coming into the school to lead the programme. In return the girls have learned a new sport and have got to participate in Rowing blitz’s run by Rowing Ireland and also the girls have been given the opportunity to row on the water at various Rowing clubs.
The whole of 1st Year went to a rowing Blitz last Friday in Trinity College and all had a great day. At the Blitz the school was presented with an award for the most committed school over the last few years. We were presented with a signed jersey of our successful Olympic and World Championship rowers both men’s and ladies - such a great honour for the school. Miss. Quinn and Miss Walls - PE Department
Trinity College in conjunction with the Royal Chemistry Society carried out a workshop in Spectroscopy for Dominican College Senior Physics and Chemistry Classes as part of Dominican College's Science Week today.
‘Spectroscopy in a Suitcase’ allowed the students to learn about spectroscopy through hands-on experience. As well as covering the principles of spectroscopic techniques, the activities use real-life contexts to demonstrate the applications of the techniques as well as the added bonus of using the instruments themselves.
This week has been science week here in Dominican. There have been many different events going on around the school for all of our different year groups. To recognise the week we took a break from our normal biology class when the science department found us a fun activity to do with the DNA. It just happens that we are covering Genetics at the moment.
For our science week activity we created DNA in its double helix form using sweets and jellies. We used different coloured jellybeans for the four bases (adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), thymine (T)) and for the protein we used liquorice. It was a fun activity to do as we learned and tested ourselves on the different pairings of the bases and also had a sweet treat at the end.
