As part of their Junior Cycle study for English a number of 3rd year students attended a performance of the Merchant of Venice in Birr Theatre on Tuesday. Produced and performed by the Cyclone Rep Theatre Education Company. This excellent production brought the Shakespearean classic to life for the students and there even was the opportunity for some of the students to get involved on stage. This could well be the start of some promising acting careers.
Our senior debating team travelled to Garbally last week for the latest round of the Concern Debates. The team made up of Transition Year Students; Edward Clarke, Lorcan Withers, Josh Earley and Daniel Butler were opposing the motion ‘China is good for Africa’. Following a robust exchange of views and opinions the adjudicators returned deadlocked and a draw was declared. This was a most enjoyable evening for the lads and thanks to Ms Nolan for her assistance.
