What a finish to our amazing Acceptance Week! On Friday 16th November we had the pleasure of welcoming the 56th Rose of Tralee to our school; the fantastic Maria Walsh. Maria spoke openly with wit, intelligence and charisma of her own experiences as a member of the LGBTQ++ community and how it doesn't define who she is. She explained that she can't afford to live in the ignorance or narrow mindedness of other people when there is so much good work to be done. A true inspiration; courageous, fearless and extremely determined; we extend our gratitude to Maria for joining us on Friday. Many thanks also to Ms. O Dea on what was a fantastic week and to the TY students for all their hard work at organising the speakers and helping to plan and run the week! "This above all: to thine own self be true..." ~ Shakespeare
