Transition Year (TY)

Events run by TY students:

Caife Gaeilge

Every Friday at lunchtime Caife Gaeilge is on in the School Library. This year the Caife was run by TY students, who made Cupáin Tae nó Seacláid Te le Barra Seacláide for everyone and organized cluichí dairteanna and Cluichí biongó for the junior classes as part of their Gaisce achievements.

Seachtain Na Gaeilge

Seachtain Na Gaeilge was the 1st two weeks of March and the TY class ran many different events for it - such as the Ferguson class treasure hunt. We hid some clues around the school for them and they received an Easter egg each and a cert that we designed for them. Then for the junior classes we held treasure hunts in Irish where they had to use their Irish knowledge and their knowledge of the school to find the treasure. We ran a “Gaeilgeoir na Seachtaine” competition to promote speaking Irish, unfortunately the school closed before we got to pick out the winners. During SnaG week we also had a bake sale and made a lot of money, then we decided to do something very Irish and sell crisp rolls with bottles of water. We planned to spend the money we raised on prizes for our events and competitions, however because the school closed before we could do this, we decided to donate the money to charity instead. We voted in our Social Care class for which charity we would donate to and Odin’s Wood Day car centre got the most votes.There was a lot of planning for these events but thanks to all the staff and Finglas completion programme it all turned out great.

Radio Nova Breakfast Party

In December Coláiste Eoin TYs hosted a breakfast Party for Lucy Kennedy and Colm Hayes of the Radio Nova Breakfast show as part of their “Twelve Parties of Christmas” event. They used the event to raise funds for the City Farm in St.. Anne’s Park to thank them for the great opportunity they had this year of getting several work experience placements with the farm. With lots of help from Helena in School Completion and Lisa ,the TY SNA, they made a breakfast rolls and cup of tea for all of the students (and most of the staff too!).
