TY Presentation Night

A large crowd attended the Transition Year presentation night on Tuesday 23rd May 2017 in the school. Ciaran Brennan, Neil Holdcroft and Peter Finegan all made presentations about the Erasmus + project, including the work they carried out and their trip to Italy in early March this year. Students were presented with a gift bag commemorating their participation in the project, which contained pens, a USB key, notepad and mouse mat.

Sustainable materials for Insulation

Transition Year students in Mr. McDonagh’s class are investigating the uses of sustainable materials as insulation. The students created a timber model of a house, complete with cavity in the external walls. The students will add layers of different materials as insulation and record the temperatures within the house. Results of this experiment will be shown at the Transition Year Presentation night at the end of the month.
