Well done to all.

 

 

 

 

Spring 2016:  The PA had a very successful and busy start to our school year.

 

We started with our first meeting on 9th Sept and finalized preparations for our AGM on 17th Sept

 

The AGM was very well attended and was a welcome opportunity for all present to hear Ms Clarke and Mrs. Lennon speak of current activities, and future plans, in the School.  The current officers of the committee were ratified and we had a vote for two parent representatives to the School Board of Management. There were four candidates and the parents selected were Cormac Gorman and Edel Joyce. We wish them well in their term on the Board.

 

 

 

We had a busy month of promotion for our parents' talk on 15th October by Dr Fergus Heffernan, a Clinical Psychologist and Family Therapist.Over 200 parents attended. This talk

 

 was on the topic of 'Understanding the Emotional Wellbeing of Teenagers' but included a lot more about family dynamics and understanding ourselves and how we parents have been shaped by our  childhood experiences.

 

It was a very witty and informative talk and we hope to have Dr Heffernan back in the next school year.

 

 

 

We also helped the School with its first Careers Fair ,on 6th October, with some of us representing our various occupations. This was very successful and gave Fifth and Sixth year students an opportunity to meet with people working in, or studying for, careers they are considering. There were also representatives of various Third Level and PLC institutions, and it is hoped that this will be a regular biennial event in the School. We would like to congratulate all involved in the organisation of this event.

 

 

 

The PA organised the annual Study Skills seminar on 14th November which was  very well 

 

attended with 100 students present. This was subsidized by the PA and only cost the students Eu10 each.

 

We also helped with vaccinations, keeping the students calm while they waited their turn., and assisted at the recent (6th Feb) Entrance Exam.

 

 

 

The PA would like to congratulate the College Prefects on their very successful Colours Day charity fund raiser. We also strongly endorse  the recent Friendship Week with its take home message of 'Kindness for All'.

 

We look forward to the months ahead as we continue to support the School in its education of our young people.

 

 

 

An early reminder that our annual Second Hand Book Sale will take place at the end of June. Please remind all 3rd and 6th Year students to take care of their books in order to increase their re-sale value! Demand for books last year out stripped supply, so please consider selling on your books if they are not going to be re-used by someone else in the family. We can only accept books for sale which are in reasonably good condition.

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”.
