Today 30 of our most enterprising students from TY attended the Entrepreneurship and Wellness Workshop organised by BOI Listowel. The students had the opportunity to listen to some fantastic entrepreneurs who shared their success stories as well as listening to the importance of having a healthy work/life balance. An interview panel consisting of Kerry Footballers Aidan O Mahoney, Killian Young and Shane Enright talked them through their daily routines and gave them fantastic advice for a healthy mind in a healthy body-drilling home our school motto. A great day out was had by everyone
Students attended the Sci Fest in the IT Tralee on May 5th and once again brought home the honours. Orlaith McSweeney, a second year student won the junior category with her project ‘Can Pollen cure Hayfever’ and Roisin Noonan from Transition Year received an honourable mention for her project on Motion Sensors for Bicycles. Congratulations to both girls and indeed to all who took part in the event. And a big thank you to Ms. Nolan for all her work with the students.
Bishop Ray Browne Patron of Tarbert Comprehensive was in the school on October 28th 2016 to bless the New Extension and Gym Suite. The New Extension includes two new classrooms and a resource room. The Gym Suite was part fundraising by the Parents\\\\\\\' Association and Mary Chute was on hand to represent the Association on the day. Also present were Micheal McElligott of McElligott Properties and David Moriarty architect.
Domnic MacSorley CEO of Concern Worldwide came to the school on Friday 4th March to present the school with a trophy in honour of the tremendous fundraising the school did in 2015. Once again the school has been named as school of the year. Over the last 30 years the school has raised €199,310. The driving force behind this fantastic fundraising is Ms. O’Carroll and every year she gathers the volunteers and organises the events around the fundraising. To celebrate the event, students, parents and teachers gathered in the library to watch Ms. O’Carroll receive the trophy on behalf of all involved in the fundraising. Well done Ms. O’Carroll and to all involved.
In Tarbert Comprehensive we encourage our pupils to engage in a wide range of extra-curricular activities as they play an important role in helping our pupils to develop many working skills, people skills, and more. We are proud of our Extra-Curricular & Sporting History a flavour of which is illustrated by this album.
Transition Year is one of the most successful programs offered to our pupils in the Comp. The program as we know it was established in 2008 and has gone from strength to strength. But did you know that Transition Year in the Comp was offered long before 2008. See our Transition Year 1995 album.
