A Magical Yet Informative Evening

Our Senior School Information Evening was a smashing success, as hundreds  of interested boys and girls and their parents visited the school and received a real taste of what it is to be a Conlethian,  literally a ‘taste’ as some of Chef Mark’s specialties were served up as finger food following the presentations and speeches by the Principal, Donal ODulaing, Mr. Carvill and select pupils.  This was be followed by tours of the school by both the youngsters and their parents, with some delightful stops along the way, including:  the interactive ICT language activities organised by the dynamic duo of the French department, Mr. Porzadny and Ms. Crowley; dangerously fun experiments cooked up by Ms. Phelan in the lab; Roman Numeral Bingo and Latin Vocabulary Chariot Racing in the Classics room; a diverse yet deep display of student musical talent orchestrated by maestros Ms. Fay and Ms. deBhal; Mr. Trenier’s muscular yet sensitive display of the new TY Programme; Head of Sport Gavin Maguire’s rugby line-out drills with man-mountain and Leinster-selected Kevin Dolan the star attraction; craic and cupla focal in the Irish Room with Mr. Ahern and an awesome display of student work in the art room, ocurated by Ms. Halpin and, last but not least, Ms. NiAonghusa, Sammy Butler and the Whiz Kids indulging in some co-operative coding in the ICT Room .  We pride ourselves on being the school which is ‘small enough to care, yet large enough to challenge’.  Judging from the size of the crowd, we may be about to become a bit larger, but you can be sure the care and the challenges will grow hand-in-hand!
