Hilary Term 2007

Boarders return tomorrow night, and classes start again on Tuesday. As usual, term will be very busy. In terms of regular work, it's not too far from Mock Leaving and Junior Certificate exams in late February. The winners of the Senior and Junior English Prizes will be announced shortly (these exams were taken at the end of last term). The Willis Prize for Shakespeare will be held near the end of term. Transition Year pupils, having recently finished their major Extended Essays, will this term be starting their Work Portfolios, further developing their creative writing skills. The Transition Year Academic Prize Presentations will be held near the end of term. There are two dramatic productions this term - the Junior Play, The Hypochondriac, by Molière (pictured), and the St Andrew's Festival one-act entry, Chekhov's A Marriage Proposal. The House Debating finals are on February 3rd. In mid-March we have our annual Actiontrack 'taster' workshops for II form.

Over the term we'll be posting plenty of news about other events, and plenty of work by our pupils.
