Zero Waste Workshop

We were delighted to welcome Dunchadh Kinane, Environmental Youth Officer (Clubs & ECO-Choices) to Moyne College on Tuesday 13th March, to speak to some of our 1st and 2nd year students on the concept on Zero Waste.

The 2 hour workshop was extremely interactive with plenty of debate, group work and discussion. It provided learning on the problem of waste, locally and globally, and what we can do about it. The workshop allowed for cross-curricular links with various aspects of the school curriculum, from the concept of Stewardship in CSPE, the Green-Schools programme and Sustainability in Geography.

Well done to all.

 

 

 

 

 

Creative Writing

We are delighted and honoured to welcome Terry McDonagh, a native of Kiltimagh, Co Mayo to host a Creative Writing workshop for some of our 1st and 2nd years students on Thursday 22nd February 2018.

Terry Mc Donagh is freelance poet of international acclaim and a former Drama Director at The International School of Hamburg. He has been writer in residence in Australia, throughout Asia, as well as in several European countries.

With his wealth of knowledge and experience within the realms of poetry and drama, we are delighted that he is available to take time out of his busy schedule to host this workshop and to share his knowledge and skills with our students to help them to develop as creative writers and language enthusiasts.

His present fuelled the room with enthusiasm and interest. The students involved were enthralled by Terry's animated demeanour and his sometimes wacky imagination. He opened their eyes to the power of the imagination and their creativity was sculptured as he encouraged them to reflect on their thoughts and to act out various emotions and scenarios.

Student composed a mini sage, a Haiku and a poem. Their creative compositions are currently being compiled into a collection, which we hope to publish shortly. The skills gained from the activities in the workshops will be very beneficial to students as they embrace not only senior cycle English but the in the forthcoming years.

Terry's knowledge and experience proved to be invaluable and he has instilled a wealth of knowledge and skills in the students which will help them to develop as creative writers and language enthusiasts for many years to come.

Some thoughts from our students:

“It was great fun and it helped me build confidence”

“The day was really fun and interesting”

“A fantastic experience
