Limerick’s Urban Horse Project

Limerick’s Urban Horse Project is a City of Culture Legacy project by Limerick Corridor Art Programme Ltd.  It is led by Angela Connolly, artist, educator, social entrepreneur and founder of Limerick Corridor Art Programme. The project aims to collaborate with people of all ages across our city and beyond and with young people in particular, to explore the creative and imaginative side of Limericks youth while celebrating Limericks unique horse culture.

Fifteen groups from across Limerick were chosen to participate in this large community public art project due to be displayed as part of the programme of events for Limerick as the National City of Culture and to coincide with Limericks Culture Night this coming September 19th 2014. These groups, in collaboration with other artists, will produce a group of horse sculptures. The interactive horse models will be displayed in the Peoples Park until 31st October 2014. They will then travel across the city where they will go on display in various locations until 31st December 2014.

Students from Castletroy College have been busy these past few weeks preparing their own unique designs to decorate and paint their horse model.  It is due to be painted during the months of June and July, in an out-of-school supervised workshop where artists will be available to help and give guidance where necessary.

This is a wonderful project for Castletroy College and the city of Limerick during this year of the National City of Culture. We look forward to seeing one of these sculptures installed in the school when the exhibition around the city is complete

Bishop Leahy Visits

Bishop Brendan Leahy’s welcome visit to Castletroy College 20/5/14

A reflection from our students

By Ty’s Niamh Mulhall, Alan Costelloe, Eimear Nelson and First years, Andrea Crockett, Aisling Herbert and Ciara O’Brien.

‘It made me feel like being a better person’ quote from a 6th year student.

On Tuesday 20th May 2014, we were lucky enough to welcome Bishop Brendan Leahy to our school. Traditional Irish music filled the school entrance as our ‘Trad group ‘and Ms Catherine Clohessey welcomed Bishop Leahy followed by a warm greeting from our TY ‘Anois’ team ,Mr.Padraig Flanagan and Ms Brenda Cribbin who accompanied the Bishop to the staffroom  to meet the staff and for a cup of tea. Meanwhile the whole school was assembling in the sports hall, where the bishop then joined us.

Our Liturgy began with a welcome speech from Mr.Flanagan, followed by a presentation of three candles representing all major world religions, all Christians and all faiths and beliefs. Singing followed with the first years, this little light of mine accompanied by Ms Cribbin.

Then Mr.Trevor Griffin said the first reading. We then followed with prayers said by students and teachers. Then Bishop Leahy told us short but meaningful stories about love and happiness. Also that by living at a higher level with prayer that we could experience ‘joy’. He also wished all those doing exams every blessing and that there is a candle lighting in the Pastoral centre for you all.

The meaning of our motto for school which is on our crest ’Ut sint Unim’ ,that we may be one, came into play perfectly as the visit of our Bishop brought our school community together.

Active Schools Flag

PE Dept with our Vice Principals receiving the Active School Flag Award from Karen Cotter Active Schools National Coordinator

On Thursday 15th May, we were delighted to be awarded the active schools flag after we received an Accreditation visit from the National Coordinator Karen Cotter.  She met with a large number of staff and students to gain as much information as possible, in relation to the Physical Education Curriculum and the extensive Extra Curricular Programme we have in place in Castletroy College. She gave some very positive feedback as well as some very insightful ideas on how we could develop the more unstructured aspects of the extracurricular programme, and how to promote the performance arts and martial arts activities even further.

Active travel to school is an aspect of our school culture we would like to improve upon. This will only be possible with the help of our students’ parents, who can encourage their children to walk or cycle to school using the very good cycling and walking paths system in the locality.

We would also like to emphasise the importance of participation in physical activity and sport , particularly when in exam years.  Research shows a direct correlation between those participating in sport and obtaining academic success.

We would like to extend our thanks to all members of the school community who contribute to the wide range of physical activities within the school, and also to management who facilitate these activities on a day to day basis.

Castletroy College First Year Business Studies students recently visited a very successful local Business in Annacotty Business Park called receipe4success. Shane and Nicola Donohue were very welcoming  and catered for the students in an extremely professional manner. This purpose built building creates an environment for active learning.

Students prepared for this event by researching and compiling a list of questions under the following headings, Business Structure, Finance, Employees, Products etc. All questions were answered very competently by the two owners and all students have now a greater understanding of how a successful local business operates.

 

Shane and Nicola demonstrated how to make chocolate mousse and all students and teachers got to taste this delicious dish.Castletroy College look forward to working with this successful business in the future.
