Think Road Safety

This week, all Transition Year students got a taste of reality when Michael Gleeson’s MOGCar demonstration arrived at the school. The objective of the demonstration is to instil the minds of drivers and would be drivers the limitations and frailties of a motor vehicle. The impressive and necessary exhibition showed students just how dangerous motor vehicles are especially when one speeds or is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The display aimed to dispel the feeling of “invincibility” behind the wheel.

The “hands on”, all weather safety demonstration is aimed at second level students as most will be learning to drive or will be in the near future. Mr. Michael Gleeson arrived at the school with a specially modified car where students were able to get an insight into the internal workings of a car and also learn preventative measures to counteract a crash scenario. Students also discovered the consequences of driving with damaged parts.

Mr. James Galvin said that “the whole demonstration was very educational and provided our Transition Years with the brutal but necessary reality of road accidents. There is no doubt in my mind that the display opened the student’s eyes with regard to road safety.”  Coláiste Chiaráin takes the safety of students very seriously and anything that can educate students with regard to their wellbeing will be taught!

Buon Natale!!

Yesterday the Italian department organised a Christmas party for Form II and Form IV students where everyone was able to try 'Pandoro', the typical Italian Christmas cake and sing some Italian christmas carols. The party was a huge success and all the students tasted a little bit of an Italian Christmas.


Mr. Moretti and Ms. O'Brien would like to thank all those students who have helped out and wish everyone: Buon Natale!
