Virtual Bond Trading

On Wednesday last ten of our fifth year L.C.V.P. pupils participated in a virtual bond trading competition at The Anner Hotel in Thurles. Organised by the Bank Of Ireland, the event began with a crash course in markets and bond trading before the pupils competed in a challenge whereby they had to manage their own portfolios and respond to realistic bond market scenarios. This fun competition was an enjoyable and insightful introduction to the world of market trading.

Senior Soccer

Our under-19 soccer panel lost out on penalties to Glenstal Abbey last Thursday, thus bringing their season to a disappointing end. Glenstal twice went ahead in the first half and twice Frank McKevitt equalised before Maurice Walsh headed home from close range to give Thurles the lead. However, Glenstal levelled the scores just before the interval. Thurles tightened up at the back in the second half and had loads of possession but couldn’t find a winner. The game ended 3-3 and Glenstal won the shootout.

Art Film

On Wednesday last our 4th, 5th and 6th year art students visited The Source to watch ‘Loving Vincent’, a stunning, fully painted, animated feature film starring Douglas Booth and Saoirse Ronan. The film explores the life and controversial death of Vincent Van Gogh, as told by his paintings and the characters that inhabit them. The intrigue unfolds through interviews with the characters closest to Vincent and through dramatic reconstructions of events leading up to his death. The students really enjoyed this very innovative, unique and creative film.

L.C.V.P Trip

As part of its investigations into local enterprises, the sixth year L.C.V.P. class paid a visit to Boru Stoves on Wednesday last. There, they viewed the different stages of production and assembly, were made familiar with the rigorous quality control protocol and learnt about the company’s investment in research and development. They also learnt about the development of new products which satisfy modern consumer demands. The students will now use what they learnt during the recorded interviews which form a part of their portfolios. Thanks to Boru Stoves for facilitating this very insightful tour.
