Friendship Week 2007

Rationale of Dominican College Friendship Week (Sept 24th – Sept 28th, 2007)

• To educate people about bullying and how to avoid it and/or deal with it.
• To reinforce the fact that we have a policy in place and what it includes.
• To promote an atmosphere of respect and tolerance amongst the school community.
• To provide an opportunity for the students to ‘bond’ in a fun way.

Last year, all year groups had daily lessons. It was agreed that this year we focus mainly on 1st, 3rd and 5th Years but that everyone would have a ‘refresher’ session. The lessons this year incorporate material from last year’s programme (The Cool School Programme) and suggestions from both teacher and student evaluation forms handed in after last year's programme.

What is The Cool School Programme?
The Cool School Programme is an anti-bullying programme for second level schools currently being developed by a multi-disciplinary team in the North Eastern Health Board region. The Programme was initiated because it was identified that many children have experienced emotional and behavioural problems as a result of bullying in school. 

The aim of the programme is to examine the extent of bullying in the region, and to support the development of an effective anti-bullying policy in each post-primary school. In this context the Cool School Programme is operating in compliance with Department of Education (and Science) Guidelines on Countering Bullying in Primary and Post-Primary Schools (1993). 

The components of the programme include: consultation with schools; administration of a pupil survey; whole school policy development; teacher training, and the support of a Therapy group for victims of bullying. In addition, comprehensive materials development has been initiated and this includes Teachers booklets, a Parents Booklet, Video production, and Curriculum Development.

Pictures from throughout the day can be found on our Gallery.

Junior Certificate Home Economics Food Displays - 2007

The week after the Easter holidays was a busy one for Junior Certificate Home Economics students as they cooked up a storm in the kitchen for their practical exam. In Home Economics, 35% of the marks are for practical cookery. Students have two weeks to practise their dishes before the exam. Students cooked dishes such as bread, scones, lasagne, curry, quiche, apple tart, fruit salad, soup and many more culinary delights! Looking at the pictures below, who know maybe there are some up and coming Jamie Oliver's amongst this group of hardworking students!

15% of the Junior Certificate Home Economics marks are for practical craft work. Crafts vary from knitting, to appliqué, to dressmaking and embroidery.

Céile san Idirbhliain

Ar an 16ú lá Márta chuamar go Scoil Naomh Áodhán I bhFionn Bhrú chuig chéilí chun Seachtain na Gaeilge a chéiliúradh. Bhi sé go hiontach agus bhain gach duine, idir dhaltai agus mhuinteoirí, sult as. Bhí an ceol an-deas agus bhí na buachailli an-bhríomhar go deo!
