The Retreat for students from St. Declan’s Community College took place on Thursday 26th February in St. John’s Pastoral Centre, Waterford.
We wish to thank Sr. Antoinette for providing the students with a wonderful opportunity to reflect on life and evaluate their journey thus far. Through a mixture of music, meditation, art and dance the students explored their own unique value and their potential to live meaningful, purposeful lives into the future.
Transition Year Students are busy this week with rehearsals for their annual Variety Show. They will be perfecting their class dances and songs. The individual acts will also be practising.
They will perform for all the students on Thursday 12th March, during the school day. That night they will perform for the parents. The show takes place in the school gym and will begin at 7.30p.m.
Speech and Drama Exam
On Monday 2nd March, students from Transition Year in St. Declan’s took part in Speech and Drama exams. An external examiner visited the school. The participants were nervous, but did a great job on the day, achieving very high grades all round.
Thanks to Ms. Hennessy for giving up her free time to help with the practice. The students involved are extremely grateful.
