Dublin Footballer Medal Presentation by Igor

Our 2nd year boys GAA football team were very lucky to have a medal presentation by Dublin Footballer, Tom Lahiff. Tom offered words of encouragement to the students and praised them for winning their 2nd year League. Thanks to our teacher Dermot for organising this talk. We could definitely have some of the boys team following in Toms footsteps…. watch this space!

3rd Year Home Economics Practicals by Vitalina

After the Spring Break our 3rd year students in the school completed their Home Economics practical examinations. The students put their chef hats on and created some amazing dishes for their Junior Cycle. Some of the food made was reported to be absolutely delicious! Well done to all third year students and to Olwyn, Alan and our 5th year student who supported the 3rd years. 

Coding Classes in Belmayne ETSS by Vitalina Bogorevich 

During the month of April in Belmayne ETSS students from the Maynooth Digital Leadership programme came in to teach first year classes coding. The 1st years tried out a lot of new tools and applications in their coding classes like micro bits which can be coded so that you can play games on them! They also tried a wide range of different enigmas and puzzles. All first year students really enjoyed the lessons and learnt a lot of new information about the world of coding!

Diversity Day at Belmayne ETSS by Conor Hynes

On Friday the 28 of April we had an assembly about diversity. Diversity involves people from a range of different social backgrounds and different genders etc. 

At the assembly we heard from the Amber Flag Committee they gave the whole school many informative speeches about Polish, Algerian and Turkish cultures. The Amber committee is responsible for promoting diversity and inclusion for the whole school community. The committee presented information about the countries languages and food. They brought in different food from different cultures which Cillian shared at lunch time in his classroom for everyone to try in room 3!
