Gaeltacht Bake Sale
5th years held a bake sale to help fund a Gaeltacht trip to Mayo. They succeeded in getting lots of volunteer bakers in school and were overwhelmed by the amount of food they had! Many thanks to students, teachers and parents who helped out and thanks to everyone who bought and ate the goodies. Neakm neaim.
The Big Hello Project
Abbey Community College recently took part in the "Big Hello" initiative when we invited local eldery residents to join us in the school for some banter, craic, music, and fun. There was a brilliant atmosphere in the school and well done to all who took part and to Ms Kenny for organising. The students were amazing and we are all so proud of the efforts they made, and their engaging and positive approach. Well done all.
Chemistry in Action Visit
Senior Chemistry students made a site visit to a drug manufacturing facility run by a local company called TopChem, in Ballymote. TopChem manufacture active pharmaceutical ingredients which are the part of a medicine that has a therapeutic effect. In relation to a pain killer that would be the part of a pain killer that reduces pain.
The visit offered the opportunity for students to see first hand how Chemistry as a subject contributes to society both in terms of job creation and the synthesis of useful chemicals such as medicines. It also highlighted to students how in demand Science and Chemistry graduates are for the success of the pharmaceutical industry.
Abbey Community College students recently enjoyed taking part in the
"Upcycling" project in woodwork.
The students are all in second year took part in reusing materials to create craft items with their teacher
