TY Hairdressing Workshop

Ursuline TYs got the lowdown on how to take care of their locks with a hairdressing workshop last week, delivered by Ann O’Reilly. This is always a really popular event in the annual TY calendar with students learning about the types of products they should be using and the best ways to take care of their crowning glory. Each student also had a dolls head, replete with plenty of luscious hair on which they could practice up-styles, chignons, plaits and braids. It was a fun and practical lesson in personal grooming and keeping hair clean and looking healthy.


ARTiculation Public Speaking Final

Kaja Gorwa, Fifth Year in the Ursuline Secondary School, who finally got to compete in the National Final of the ARTiculation Public Speaking competition having secured her place among the remaining competitors way back in March. She submitted her presentation virtually on Tuesday, 3 November using a PowerPoint presentation to speak about the Polish sculptor Jerzy Kedziora. Kedziora’s work is internationally acclaimed and he has won numerous awards. His metal sculptures are displayed in open city spaces and balance in beautifully gymnastic and aesthetic poses, appearing to be almost suspended in thin air. Kaja recorded her submission in School and this was then uploaded to be viewed by the judging panel. The winners were announced virtually on Thursday. Kaja did a fantastic speech on a very interesting artist and topic. Well done to her on reaching the All-Ireland ARTiculation Final for the second year in a row and many thanks to her Public Speaking teacher Ms Quinn.
