The Ploughing Championships

Last week a group of our fourth year students headed to the Ploughing Championships in Kildare. A collection of poets on the English Leaving Cert course have sourced their inspiration from rural life so this exhibition will certainly give the students an insight into the motivation behind these works. Thank you to Mr. Pat Hayes and Mr. Joe White who accompanied the students.

Language Awareness Week

This week is language awareness week in Coláiste Chiaráin. The purpose of this week is to heighten the students’ awareness of the traditions and cultures of Spain, France, Italy and Germany.
The students will participate in a range of activities including sampling examples of fine European cuisine, bi-lingual quizzes, films amd many more.
This annual event always proves to be a success and it certainly enhances the teaching of European languages in the school.
“The experience brings to life the key aspects of language studies within the school. We see great value in this week as it gives the students the opportunity to explore the extensive language programme available in Coláiste Chiaráin”, explained Sara Martinez, Head of Modern Languages, Coláiste Chiaráin.
