Mount Temple has enjoyed a link with the Project Theatre for many years that gives our students the opportunity to see theatre at greatly reduced prices. They also enjoy the opportunity to engage with theatre practitioners.
Last term there were 9 visits to the theatre. Our first visit of the term will take place on Thursday, the 23rd of January at 7.45. Students will see Siren Production's play 'A Tender Thing'. If you wish to go fill in a permission form and give it and 5 euro to Ms. Doak as soon as possible. Tickets will be given out on a first come, first served basis.
Coder Dojo is a place and time to learn about all aspects of computer programming. Our first experimental few weeks were a great success with a spectrum of abilities and aspirations from students. Many learnt about video game development using Python, C++ and Java. Others developed their skills in web programming and we saw interest in hacking and app development. Looking forward we plan to reform into a more rigid weekly programme and have specific goals outlined for group and project work. With a bit of luck we'll have a Raspberry Pi to play with, allowing us to look at robotics, or even genuinely practical uses for programming. Suitable for all experience levels we will gladly welcome any new enthusiast.
On Wednesday last, the 2nd year group raised €280 for the worthy charity Vincent de Paul on Gardiner st. The year group decided to dress up in their most festive outfits & donate €2 in roll call that morning. Some distributed gifts from secret Santa to the forms on that day. Great fun was had by all including our form team, who were actively involved and equally as festive. Well done to all & Merry Christmas. From ms Ryan and all the 2nd year team.
