During the Easter holidays Senorita Mc Dwyer, Inion Ni Ghallcohair and Senor Mc Cartney spent five days in Madrid City. 21 Transition Year girls from Dominican College went on this exciting trip during and it was a wonderful and very memorable experience.
This year the French 2nd Year class had pen pals from Nyons. We talked about our interests, our school, our families etc. It improved our French vocabulary and improved our letter writing skills. We even got a chance to meet our pen pals in April as they were in Dublin for a few days. Everyone was so nice and everyone got on really well. We all walked around St Stephens Green trying to speak French while they tried to communicate in English. It was hard but we all managed pretty well. It was a great experience and I hope to continue to keep in touch with my pen pal through 3rd Year. (Eloise Keogh, 2.3.)
Greetings from Dominican College Griffith Avenue. This year the school started a new optional course in 5th Year. It is called the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP). As part of the LCVP programme the students have to run an Enterprise Activity.
If you are interested in coming along please connect to the Facebook page we set up for the event for more details. This will be a relaxed and informal event and we look forward to seeing lots of you on the night. Please spread the word to your Dominican friends, family and neighbours. Due to the time pressure on us at the end of the school year we won't be able to respond to individual Facebook messages etc. We hope you understand.
Mr Curry (LCVP Coordinator)
Over the Easter break, my friends and I were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to visit Arás an Uachtaráin. When we arrived we were given a short tour and learned some very interesting pieces of information about paintings of our past presidents and furniture in the house. After that we attended a ceremony where the Ambassadors of Azerbaijan, Argentina and Bosnia and Herzegovina presented their credentials to President Michael D. Higgins and Minister Seán Sherlock, amongst many others. Then we were taken outside where the defence forces provided a guard of honour for the Ambassadors while an orchestra played the national anthems of each country. Here we met Michael D. Higgins himself when he came over and shook all of our hands, commenting on the weather and asking if we enjoyed the ceremony. We had our picture taken on the steps of Arás an Uachtaráin and afterwards we went back inside for tea and cake with the army. It was a great opportunity and one we will never forget. (R. Harold)
