Every year five students represent Sion Hill on the Dublin Dioceses Annual Pilgrimage to Lourdes. Students from all over the Diocese travel with the pilgrimage and work along-side the experienced to assist the Sick Pilgrims during their stay in Lourdes. Emily, Hannah, Katie, Laoise and Tara had the honour of attending this year. Each student fundraised to go and would like to take this opportunity to thank all who supported them in this mission. Well done to all five, who worked very hard during the week.
A group of students from 2nd and 3rd year traveled to Coláiste Acla Co. Mayo for a weekend in September. The students took part in many activities including surfing, cliff jumping, bog snorkeling, kayaking and céilí dancing as well working on their Irish in class. The students thoroughly enjoyed their weekend.
On Monday all second year students went on a geography field trip to Bull Island and Loughshinny. There students learned about the processes of coastal deposition and erosion. They also investigated methods of coastal protection.
Congratulations to all transition year students who received their junior certificate results in September.
They all did extremely well and a special word of congratulations goes to our two highest achieving students: Jaslin Joy and Grainne Duggan.
