The Fesitval of Sukkot 28 Oct 2016
As part of their Religious Education Junior Certificate Project class 3.5 built a Sukkah.
A Sukkah is a temporary shelter used and decorated by Jews during the festival of Sukkot.
This year the festival of Sukkot falls between the 16th and the 23rd of October. Groups in the class carried out research on the festival, designed the Sukkah, built it after school and decorated it. We also got a chance to visit the Jewish Museum to gather more information on the festival.
Well done 3.5 on a fantastic project!
The 5th year Prefect Programme is an invaluable resource in the College. We place great importance on this mentoring programme. It provides an on-going support to First Year students in the transition from their primary schools.
This year we have sixteen candidates who are looking forward to taking on the responsibilities of leadership and support for the year. We wish them the best of luck with their First Year Forms!
