Five Transition Year students were presented with their certificates for their participation in the Wicklow People TY Newspaper supplement. The Wicklow People acknowledged the students’ hard work on this project and praised their writing talents and their topical and interesting pieces. Alison Kearney also gained special recognition as she received a plaque for her highly commended article ‘Time for a Book’, which examined reading habits amongst young people today. Well done to all students involved in this great project.
Junior and Senior Awards
Students were acknowledged and rewarded for their hard work and effort in many areas of school life last week. Junior and Senior students were recognised for their excellence, as well endeavour in their academic areas. As well as this, students’ participation in extra-curricular activities such as sports, choir and writing competitions was commended and rewarded.
Sixth Year Graduation
There was a flurry of excitement last Thursday around Avondale Community College as Sixth Year students said their last goodbyes. The Graduation is a milestone for these students, as it marks the end of their time in Avondale Community College. They now go forward to face new challenges and opportunities in life. The very best of luck to the students in their exams and in their future endeavours.
Two young athletes from Avondale Community College have made school history as they qualified for the Aviva All- Ireland Athletics Schools Final in Tullamore on 2nd June 2012. Fifth Year student, Laura Kavanagh and Second Year student Amaris Borel have enjoyed a great run of success already this year. Laura who competes in the Senior Triple Jump and Amaris who competes in the 75 metre Hurdle both battled it out in the East Leinster Competition to collect their winning medals, which sent them through to the Leinster Finals. The hard work and dedication of the girls paid off, as they once again gained silver medals in the Leinster Finals in Santry. The All-Ireland Schools Final is the culmination of months of training sessions and competitions. There will be great competition, as the twelve hopefuls contest for the winning positions on the podium. The achievements of the girls so far has been immense and in fact will go down in Avondale history. Well done to the girls and best of luck to the girls.
The management and staff of Avondale Community College would like to wish Junior and Leaving certificate students the best of luck in their upcoming exams!
