Well done to everyone. Thanks to Ms. Larkin for her help organising the group along with Mr. Maher. Also thanks to Ms. Ormond for the display of flags representing all the various nationalities attending Coláiste.


TY activities

Our TY group had a most enjoyable day trip recently to Ballyhass Adventure Centre. It was very well laid out with many water and ground activities to keep the students occupied.

On Thursday 17th September 2021, Transition Year students at Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré explored the evidence behind the JFK assassination.  The workshop was delivered by Ms. Alison Leck from ‘Forensic Fun’ and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  The students explored the unidentified fingerprint, ballistics and the questions around the autopsy.  A timeline was recreated of Lee Harvey Oswald’s movements immediately after JFK’s assassination and again after the killing of police officer Tippit, Who might have been behind this and what else was happening in the world at the time?

It seems the students ended the workshop with more questions than they started with!!!
