BT Young Scientist

Congratulations to our six Transition Year students who represented our school very well at last week's BT Young Scientist and Technologist competition. Jordan Casey, Daniel Lye and Colm Smyth received a highly commended award for their project "KidsCode". Eoin Mullally received a lot of praise for his project on nuclear energy and has been invited to the Science Gallery in Trinity College, Dublin. Craig McAuliffe and Darragh Quinn have been invited to Irish Aid to present their project on water production using renewable energy. Well done to all involved. 

Transition Year News

Today Henry Shefflin came to De La Salle College to speak to the Transition Year Students.  He was representing Bank Of Ireland in conjunction with the recent launch of our school bank 'Bank to the Future.  He was welcomed to the school by the Transition Year Co-ordinator Julieann Cantwell and he gave a great motivational speech to the students.  He outlined the importance of hard work and effort in helping you to achieve your goals and took many interesting questions from the floor. He will return in May to conduct a training session with students.
