Ski Trip 2015

"Early on Saturday morning the 14th of February, De La Salle College departed on their first ever ski trip to the scenic Italian ski resort of Andulo. Sixty two De La Salle students graced the slopes of the magnificent Dolomite peaks with an extensive 52km of ski area.

The resort itself was perfect with the village of Andulo set right beside the slopes.
Students enjoyed six full days of ski school to develop their skills on the slopes. By the end of the week some were so confident that they could easily flash down the black slopes.

This week was the first of its kind for De La Salle College and proved a brilliant experience for students who participated. A big thanks to teachers who accompanied students on the trip." 

The 3rd year JCSP class travelled to the Civic Offices in Dublin to view their Make a Book Exhibit entitled 'Mindset'. They worked with local artist in residence Stephanie Hodgers and class teacher Elaine O' Connor to produce these beautiful individual pieces of art work. Well done to all concerned.
