Our Lady's College, the newest all girls secondary school in Galway city, is celebrating its first birthday.
The first year has been a great success for the school. The rich traditions of both former schools, the combined experience of the teaching staff, and best of facilities available to the girls has created a very positive, student - centred, and successful learning environment. The school management is hugely proud of the school and particularly, of the girls.
The school offers a wide range of programmes and subjects from Junior Certificate to Leaving Certificate, and transition year as an optional extra. As well as all the core curricular subjects being on offer, Our Lady's College teaches art, music, physics, chemistry, biology, and technology and all are available to Leaving Certificate higher level. As part of the induction of first year students, all get to sample the 14 subjects available at junior cycle before making any choices. These subjects include French, German, and Spanish.
Over the last year the school has cemented partnerships with NUIG, GMIT, TULCA, IBM, the Galway Rowing Club, Green Schools, and many others. The student council and parents council are actively engaged in all initiatives and are a tremendous support to the school.
The school works hard, aims high, and has fun along the way. The girls are involved in many projects/extra-curricular activities - global citizenship; big sister mentoring, Show Racism the Red Card, drama, art, card-making, music, choir, and sports. The rowing programme has been a huge success, and now all year groups are involved.
The school is inviting all fifth class and sixth class students to celebrate on Saturday December 2 in the Newtownsmith campus 12noon to 1.30pm.
