A Busy Transition Year So Far!

Our Transition Year Students had a very busy finish to our first school term. The TY group completed a difficult 24hr No Phone Challege, then celebrated their Junior Cert results with a trip to Fun World Limerick for Bowling & Arcade games. Leading into the Halloween festivities the group used their creative skills when taking part in Pumpkin Carving. Finally, Transition Year organised a whole school fundraiser and fantastic Halloween Disco for our 1st¬†& 2nd¬†Year Students which raised ‚ā¨428 for the Jack & Jill Foundation.¬†

 

Well done Grace, Alice and Zofia!

Grace Kilgannon, Alice Kilgannon and Zofia Koloda, who perform with Musical Theatre Academy Nenagh (MTAN), won 2 All Ireland titles over the mid term break in Dublin.
MTAN became the All Ireland Variety Show overall champions, as well as becoming Show Choir Ireland National Champions in the O Reilly Theatre, Dublin. Well done on such an amazing achievement!

Stand Up Week

Nenagh College acknowledges Anti Bullying and Stand Up Week in line with our core values of care, equality, respect and community which are embedded in our Ethos. Student Council chairperson Charlie Williams is pictured with other Nenagh College students.  Stand Up Awareness Week was marked on Friday 10/11/2023.  Schools around the country were invited to take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. It is also an opportunity to take steps to make spaces safe and supportive for all young people.

University of Galway Visit

As the 2024 CAO process kicked off on 06/1/2024, all 5th year students were invited to attend a college visit talk by the University of Galway. 5th Year is the time when many students begin to think about their next steps after secondary school. While it might seem far away, starting to prepare for the Leaving Cert and exploring CAO choices now, will make the following year easier for students. Thanks to Deirdre McGreevy, Schools Liaison Officer from the University of Galway for her taking the time to speak to our students. Her insights and perspective were truly valuable.

TUS Visit

As the 2024 CAO Applications to college and university opened yesterday, Nenagh College welcomed James Clifford (Marketing Liaison Officer from TUS and former Nenagh College student ) to showcase the courses on offer in TUS, to all 6th years. The students gained valuable insights, into the range of programmes and about the CAO process. As always, James delivered an excellent presentation.  A heartfelt thank you to James. #Excellence in Education
