Cór Clainne San Lughaidh


On Friday 26 th January 2018 we hosted our first Cór Clainne in St Louis High School. This was to mark the beginning of Catholic Schools Week whilst embracing the message of the forthcoming world meeting of families which will be held in Ireland in August 2018. The St Louis ethos is centred on creating a strong sense of community and family – Ut Sint Unum (That we may be one). It was our aim to celebrate the family through the beauty of music. All First Years were requested to invite a relative to join them for a collective choral experience. They, along with their guests, came together in Cuisle, our Arts and Cultural Centre to rehearse two choral pieces. We had great fun and the newly-formed choir learned What A Beautiful World and Count on Me by Bruno Mars. We all enjoyed refreshments together at the interval and returned to Cuisle to fine tune the songs before making a recording. Thank you to our instrumentalists from other year groups who shared their talents and especially to the Music dept of Ms Kehoe, Ms Duggan and Ms Madden who ensured the success of this event.      -  C McDonough (Principal) We will post the recordings of the songs very soon.  Please click on the song titles below to listen to both performances.

All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad
The Problem Solvers’ Challenge
The All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO) is a national contest in which students must develop their own strategies for solving complex puzzles.  These problems are based on fascinating languages from around the globe.
AILO challenges secondary school students to test their minds against the world's toughest problems in logic, language and linguistics.  Students must develop their own strategies for solving complex problems in unfamiliar languages - making AILO a fabulous way to hone problem-solving and lateral thinking skills.
Any student who is interested in this competition should come to Room 37 on Mondays at 1pm to find out more.
Claire O’Connor, a 6 th year student in St Louis High School in 2016 said the following about her experience of AIOL:
"I wouldn’t exchange this opportunity I had to represent Ireland for anything, it was a great honour, and was not short of phenomenal." Claire O’Connor, Bronze Medallist, International Linguistics Olympiad 2016
