Our annual Transition Year presentation night in St Joseph’s College, Borrisoleigh took place on Tuesday May 20th.
It was a great opportunity for parents to view the vast array of projects, assignments and artwork done by the students throughout the year. Each student gave a presentation on one aspect of their year, outlining to parents the many activities and trips undertaken during the year. These included Bronze medal challenge for Gaisce Awards, Great Limerick Run, Rugby, Drama, Trips to Young Scientist, UCD, Collins Barracks and the Dáil.
The students reached the final of the AIB ‘Build a Bank Challenge’ in Cork.
The main theme of the year was focused around a ‘healthy lifestyle’. Students were encouraged to become more active through a range of sport activities, to cooking healthy meals and the adverse affects of obesity and its health implications. John Leahy spoke to students on drug & alcohol abuse. The students were presented with the many certificates received throughout the year.
Lauren Rusk was the TY student of the year.
