Gallen CS News Updates April 10th 2016


We have offered a study facility for Third and Sixth year students and this year we have extended it to the second week of Easter . It is available Mon 10th – Thurs 13th and Tues 18th to Friday 21st from 10am to 3p.m.


Last week 2A students held a cake sale for Temple Street Childrens Hospital as part of their CSPE class project. There was a terrific display of cakes for sale to both staff and students and a great effort was put in by all.


To raise awareness of World Autism Day the  students in our Autism Centre asked if all students and teachers could wear Blue past Friday which we all did. Mrs Finnegan raffled an Easter Egg for every student in each year who wore blue. Many teachers poek to their classes and showed a short selected You Tubeclip in classes also.  The students in the Cluny Centre enjoyed a small party on the day . Some of the pictures are posted below
