Science Room
We are pleased to announce that after a lot of hard work and effort we have finally finished our new Science Lab. The St Patrick’s 5th Class girls were the first to use the room with our Transition Year Students on May 17th to great excitement.
Our thanks to Community Gain Liaison Committee and Iris O’Brien Foundation for their help in this project which was co-funded with the CDETB.
Our colour scheme reflects the blue of the water the room looks out onto and the grey of some of the buildings across the water in Dublin Port. All classes from September will be using the room!

Girls Soccer Team
This was Ringsend College’s first year to enter the FAI School Girls Soccer Leagues. As numbers have doubled in the school in the last five years, we now have numbers to enter official competitions.
The Junior Girls Soccer Team made it all the way to the semi-final but were defeated, unfortunately. They had a great run with local girls Abbie Larkin, Danielle Holmes, Kerri Coughlan and Rebecca Maher being leading lights on the pitch.
It was a great start to what will hopefully be a long and successful relationship with the FAI School Girls Leagues. Well done, girls!

On May 17th the current 6th Years enjoyed an emotional graduation night in Ringsend College Assembly area with their families and friends in attendance.
As the first group to undertake the newly-introduced Transition Year Programme two years ago, they have enjoyed many happy days in the school in their six years.
The slideshow created by 6th Year student Niamh Faulkner showed the many great times they spent in Ringsend College. All eyes down now for Leaving Certificate in June!
Careers Night

There was a huge turnout at our recent Careers Night in Ringsend College. Our thanks go to Linesight, ECOCEM, CISCO Systems, ESB, McCann Fitzgerald, The Marker Hotel, Mason Hayes Curran, Google, Arup, Pfizer, Airbnb.
They were joined from the Further and Higher Education sector by National College of Ireland, Ballsbridge, Inchicore, Crumlin and Killester Colleges of Further Education. Our TY, 5th and 6th Yr students spend the time speaking to as many visitors as possible about their career opportunities and experience. Thanks to all for the support.

Paris for the TYs!
The TY 2018 Trip was to Paris this year. A great three days was had by the students and teachers, where they visited The Arc de Triomphe, The Eiffel Tower, The Mona Lisa in the Louvre Museum and Euro Disney.
