Maths Week by Timur Ciparsons

On the 7/10/22 Maths Week started with a blast In Belmayne ETSS! 

The students were given maths problems at the start of the day to solve with their classmates this was an enjoyable and fun way to get everyone to use their maths brains and work together to figure out the answers!

There was also an amazing baking competition.

Everyone tried their very best to show the judges that they were worthy for first place

All the desserts looked amazing and tasted good too.

And a special  shout out to the winners of the competition, there was 5 overall winners are the judges just couldn’t choose one!

‘Trick or Treat’ for CHI Hospitals by Caitlin White

On the last day before our October midterm break we supported ‘Trick or Treat’ for Children’s Health Ireland.

It was an amazing end to our 1st term as staff & students dressed up in their best Halloween outfits and donated €2 to the charity.

During the assembly each tutor group got up and walked down the catwalk to Halloween Music but the teachers stole the show as they strutted their stuff down the catwalk.

There were prizes for best costume and best performance on the catwalk.

There was many amazing costumes and it was very fun to see them while you walked to classes.

Athletics day in national stadium

Today was the first ever national Educate together second level athletics competition as 17 ET secondary schools from all across Ireland met in Santry to compete in the athletics event. Our own Belmayne ETSS athletes did brilliantly with medals for the mixed relay team, Ciaran in the 800m, Tristan in the 100m, Dain in the shot put and javelin and Marianne in the high jump.

The day ultimately belonged to Cellbridge who took home the overall trophy but Belmayne are going to get to their training and we’ll be back next year.

Scifest success for Belmayne first years.

Yesterday some of our amazing first years went to TU Tallaght for the Scifest competition.

Model United Nations 2022 takes place

Last week Belmayne ETSS took part in the Model U.N organised by Wicklow ETSS. First year
students took part in it to represent Germany, Brazil and Palestine and 6 committees and
debated topics from cyber warfare, space security, nuclear power and climate change,
learning a lot with others’ perspectives.

3 training sessions were held, and after a lot of research and hard work the final meeting
happened and the students splendidly and respectfully shared their thoughts and ideas as
delegates from different countries.

1st Year Boys bring home the shield

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Today on the 16th of March, the whole school community celebrated St Patrick’s day by dressing up in bright green colours and performing the céile, a dance they all learned for this occasion.

It was super enjoyable seeing everyone participating in the events and having the parents council come in to treat everyone with donuts. It was a great day celebrated right before the students got an extra long weekend.

Free Donuts!!!

Parent Council offered to give out free donuts to the students of Belmayne ETSS to finish off a hectic week of school. ”Somebody say free donuts?” , but not for everyone. Only the school students. But hey, donuts sound delicious and people did have things to say about them. And yet, it possibly won’t beat pizza day 🍕. Just don’t go donuts!

The student’s had lots to say about how tasty and delicious the donuts were, so everyone ended up eating them all and left nothing. And left the students filled with their packed lunch and a tasty treat to finish off school with a great ending.

CGE Beach Clean

Our Global Citizen Education committee has organised a beach clean on the 17th of May. This is part of their work on the SDG’s (Sustainable Development Goals) . This year they chose to focus on life below water. 109 student have agreed to help clean a local beach.
