Start of Term

Boarders return tonight (Eyjafjallajokull allowing), and classes start tomorrow. As always, in English this is a busy term - the Leaving and Junior Cert exams of course, but also:- results of the Poetry Prizes, the Shakespeare Prize, theatre visits (starting with Macbeth at the Abbey on Wednesday evening), the Transition Year English Evening (IV formers will be starting term with plenty of essay writing for their Work Portfolio), more reviews of iPhone apps useful for English, the Actiontrack showbuild week, the Voices of Poetry evening and much more. As ever, we'll be posting lots of pupil work. And our Twitter feed tweets away, highlighting interesting sites and work on the web and much more: thanks to the 229 followers we currently have. Join the conversation...

Coming shortly, too, King Lear revision podcasts on the line of last year's well-received Macbeth podcasts for the Leaving Cert.

Finally, perhaps the biggest and most exciting thing for the site this term will be the publication of our second book, selecting highlights from SCC English from 2008 to 2010, following Going Places which we published two years ago. Plenty more in due course.
