MILK IT NATIONAL FINAL IN THE MANSION HOUSE

Last week a very hardworking group of Transition Year students got the opportunity to bring their Milk it Competition project to the Mansion House in Dublin for the National Milk It Final. The competition was organised by the National Dairy Council and they girls had progressed from the initial phase whereby there were over one thousand entrants. Following their initial presentation the girls were selected to be among the final twenty teams to advance to the National Final stage. As part of the competition the students had to create a detailed portfolio of their work, run various Action Day activities, promote dairy among the student body and design a digital advertisement targeting young people. The team, better known as The White Tache Brigade, did phenomenal work in preparing for the competition and promoting the importance of dairy. Unfortunately the girls were not selected as one of the final five; however they did incredibly well and proved great ambassadors for the school throughout.

The girls have been working with the Religion, Music and Art Departments as this very important mass approaches. The mass will mark a significant new step in the students’ lives as they prepare to say goodbye to school life and forge a new path into the next stage of their lives. We wish them all well and we know that the mass will be a beautiful celebration of the time they have spent in the school.
