Temple Carrig Report by Three First Year Students
Within one term of secondary school I have tried so many new things -
Throughout the year, we have different competitions which feed into the House Cup.
Each house competes against the others to score house points -
Recently, we went on a retreat to Ovoca manner which was so much fun! It is a religious
adventure centre in Wicklow where we did lots of outdoor activities like rock-
It's definitely exciting for anyone starting secondary school, but it has been particularly
exciting for all the First Years in TCG as it is a brand-
I have been in TCG now since early September and has been a big change from my old
school St Patrick's. For a start, it's much bigger, even though we still don't have
access to the whole building, but we hope to use it soon. It has also taken time
to get used to changing classes and classrooms every forty minutes -
I am really enjoying it chance to try out different optional subjects such as languages and others like business Home Economics, Woodwork, etc. We have a fantastic selection of sports to choose from, including Girls and Boys Hockey, Rugby and we also have Zumba and Arts & Crafts.
So far this year, we have had two outings: one a day out to Lough Dan and more recently we had a retreat for a day in Ovoca manner where, despite the bad weather, we had great fun. The activities included bonding and trust exercises, talking about what our identity means to us and a climbing wall.
Temple Carrig is a fantastic school and the Principal, Mr Cox, and the teachers all treat us very well and we have great respect for them. Personally I feel I am very lucky to go to a place like TCG and I'm going to enjoy my days in secondary school.
Temple Carrig School is a wonderful secondary school with so many extra-
It is a very early start in the morning (8.15am), but after a while you do get used to it. The teachers are so kind and helpful and their standards are very high.
We've gone on two trips in the last term. This month we went to Ovoca manner in Avoca,
where we went on a team challenge, tried rock-
Here in TCG, we are a community and a great one. I haven't been in TCG for long but I really love it. I have made many friends and I hope to make more as my six years go by.
