 Congratulations to Shaun Elebert and all the cast, crew and front of house on the excellent production of 'Oliver' recently.

Well done to all.

 

 

 


 

 

The new school year has begun and the PA is swinging back into action. We have our Annual General Meeting next Thursday, 15th Sept. at 7.30pm.  We will have an update on all PA activities and our Principal, Ms Caroline Clarke, and Deputy Principal, Ms Evelyn Lennon, will speak about developments in the School in the past year, and their plans for the year ahead. Ms Clarke will also share some of the findings of the recent Whole School Evaluation, which was very positive overall. Well done to School Management, Teaching and Support Staff, and, especially, the Students!

 

Tea and coffee will be supplied and all parents are invited to attend.

 

Then, on Thursday 29th Sept., we are delighted to announce that Dr Fergus Heffernan, Clinical Psychologist and Family Therapist, will return to speak to us. His theme this year is 'Creating Resilience in Families'.

 

Tickets will be €5 each and available for sale soon from the Skerries Bookshop and the School Office. The talk will begin at 8pm sharp, with doors opening at 7.30pm. This promises to be a very stimulating and thought provoking evening.

 

The Parents' Association applauds those students who plan to take part in the 'Mission Romania' initiative. They have been very enthusiastic in their fund raising over the summer months and we hope to be able to make a donation to their funds.

 

We are currently reviewing the format of the Study Skills seminar, which the PA sponsors and which usually takes place mid November.

 

It is felt that it may not be of great benefit to First Year students and should be more directed to the Exam year students. Any feedback on this would be welcomed by us.

Skerries Community College celebrate at “Health Promoting Schools’ flag raising

There were celebrations at Skerries Community College when the new HSE Healthy Ireland – Health Promoting Schools Flag was officially unveiled on Friday 13th May 2016. The flag was the culmination of a two year project on health and well-being at Skerries Community College.

Some of the many health initiatives which were undertaken in order to progress as a “Health Promoting” school included: healthy eating with a new school policy, a well-being week, promotion of a suicide prevention message through involvement in the Cycle Against Suicide, weekly staff Pilates class, weekly running club and up to twelve different extra-curricular sporting options available to students. The school has also undertaken to have a healthy school shop in September 2016.

Mr. O’ Reilly spearheaded the healthy programme in the school. He was assisted by members of the Healthy School Committee whose members included: Ms Carr, Mr Leavy, Ms Fitzsimmons, Ms Farrell, Ms Keegan, Mr Connolly, Ms Hurley, Ms Doyle, Mr Elebert, Ms White, Ms Duffy, Ms Corbett and Ms Daly. The Student Council co-ordinated by Ms Carr assisted in organizing many of the physical and emotional well-being events throughout the year.

“I take this opportunity to thank the staff, students and management for their hard work and recognize especially the work of Mr. Eamon O’ Reilly chairperson of the Healthy Schools Committee , said Anne Walsh, HSE Healthy Schools Co-ordinator.

Anne added “Skerries Community College shall endeavor to sustain and build on this wonderful physical and mental health promotion work utilizing a whole school approach”.
