Congratulations to three talented Transition Year students who were highly commended in the national ‘Sew Cool’ craft competition 2011. They recently travelled to St. Angela’s College in Sligo for the prize giving ceremony where they each received a voucher for €50. Yasmine Zourab’s entry was a vibrant embroidered lizard, Jenny McEvatt’s eye catching cushion involved many crafts from tie dye, to patch work to embroidery and Clara O’Flaherty’s original hat involved intricate beading and embroidery. Many other ‘crafty’ Transition Year students were shortlisted for the competition and their projects are currently on display in a craft exhibition in Nazareth House in Sligo town. Watch out for a piece on the competition on Nationwide which will be televised at the end of November. The shortlisted and highly commended projects will be showcased in the school library and will be photographed for the school website when they return to Dublin. Well done to all involved.

A group of over fifty students visited the Knitting and Stitching Show in the RDS on Thursday 10th November. Students got involved in the Great Knit for Age Action Ireland on the day and many second year Home Economics students were inspired by the many wonderful crafts for their Junior Certificate projects. Mount Temple Craft Club continues to meet every Thursday at lunchtime in the library. New members are always welcome.

Alliance Francaise

Once again, Mount Temple has entered a team in the Alliance Francaise debating competition. This year’s team consists of Shelley Carlyle (Capt.), Danny Bowles, Adam Thakore, Esmay Murray and Aoife Leonard. The team beat Loreto Foxrock in the opening round on Monday 3rd October and Shelley Carlyle won the award for best speaker. The subject for debate was that “Il faut abolir l’annee de transition” with Mount Temple speaking against the motion. The second round will take place on Monday November 14th. All supporters very welcome.

Actiontrack and TY present the 1st, last and only performance of their original show. The plot, characters, story and songs have been created during the week with a mixture of games, exercises, drama, dance and singing sessions. The fruit of their labours perforemed in Mount Temple Hall October 14th.

This year’s show is a guity ‘whodunnit’ with a plot that owes much to film noir.

Murder is committed, dancing girls go missing, theirs love in the stars and the mob is in town. Broadway will never be the same….
