1. Social Placement: We would like to wish all our Transition Years the very best of luck on their Social placements this week. We see this as an opportunity to give something back to the community and while it will be a very valuable experience in the adult world of work, we hope you find the generosity of spirit to put yourselves second this week! Finally, all yellow feedback forms need to be completed by the placements and brought back into school for the Thursday morning year group assembly on December 5th. 2. Science Block Week:: A very interesting Science based Block Week has just come to our attention. Details are up on the school website if any student wishes to apply. Students who have already been lucky enough to participate in an additional Block Week are reminded that preference will be given to those yet to do one. (in the event of over subscription) "A collaboration between I-LOFAR and Science Gallery Dublin, this week-long Transition Year programme is a chance to explore space science, engineering, art and design. This programme will take place in the I-LOFAR Education Centre in Birr Castle Demense, which will bring students face to face with an international network of world class space research with the I-LOFAR Radio Telescope. This programme gives students the opportunity to develop 21st Century skills - creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication. The workshop sessions also offer the opportunity for students to interact with leading researchers and experts, and get an insight into the exciting career possibilities in space."
