Leitrim Youth Theatre.
A number of students from the school are involved in the Carrick branch and have recently completed a two night run at “The Dock” with a play called “Heroin Lies” to raise awareness of the dangers of drug use.
Shauna Diffley, Hannah Keegan and Sean McLoughlin took part in this production, directed by Katherine Sheridan and Emily.
They continue to engage in workshops on drama.

First Year Trip.
The First year students were in Dublin last week to visit the “Overseas Aid” offices in O’Connell Street. They took part in a ninety minute workshop on aid to developing countries as part of their CSPE studies. They were accompanied by Ms. Dolan, Mr. Nolan, Ms. Garvey and Ms. Gallagher. By all accounts they got some shopping done also.

Bereavement
We sympathise with Marian Cunningham and Doreen Honeyman on the death of their aunt – Mrs. Betty Reynolds. May she rest in peace.
