Team Hope Shoebox appeal

The Le Chéile Secondary School students are filling shoeboxes to send all the world’s poorest children this Christmas.  It is a lovely opportunity for young people to consider how fortunate they are and to give to those who have very, very little.  All children, no matter where they are growing up, deserve a little joy and we can give them this in a shoebox.  Watch Nina prepare her shoebox:Nina’s Shoebox

Thank you to the Book Haven

A big Thank you to the Book Haven for donating books to our fledgling library.  Here at Le Cheile Secondary School we are very conscious of developing a love for reading among our students.  We have been busy begging friends and family for donations to our library and were absolutely delighted to get this wonderful donation.  THANK YOU! image2image1

Part of the Le Chéile Family

One of the most supportive things about opening a new school under the patronage of the Le Chéile Trust is that we become part of a family of long established and excellent schools.  Recently our principal and two students went to visit Holy Child, Killiney and when our students went to a debating competition they were delighted to bump into some of their Le Chéile “cousins”.  We were also reminded of our belonging to something bigger at our official opening when we were joined by students from other Le Chéile schools.Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-82 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-44

Official Opening of School

We had a wonderful day of celebration in the school on Friday 3rd of October when students,  staff, parents and friends of Le Cheile Secondary School marked the beginning of this new school.  Students and teachers from other Le Cheile schools visited on the day and helped our choir in the singing of the Le Cheile song.  We were joined in the morning by An Tanaiste, Joan Burton, T.D.  The celebrations continued with an inter-faith prayer service and concluded with refreshments.  Our wonderfully talented students led the prayer service with reflections, music and prayers.  The students art work was also very much in evidence as well as that of our talented teachers – particularly that of Ms. O’Brien and Mr. Gainley.Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-3 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-2 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-6 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-8 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-14 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-24 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-26 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-34 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-35 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-38 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-39 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-40 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-41 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-43 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-45 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-46 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-49 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-53 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-54 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-55 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-56 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-57 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-58 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-60 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-61 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-63 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-64 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-62 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-72 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-73 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-74 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-77 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-81 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-84 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-85 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-86 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-89 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-90 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-91 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-93 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-96 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-97 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-98 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-99 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-100 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-101 Le_Cheile_Opening_Web-102 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-105 Le_Cheile_Opening_Print-111

Hello! from Le Chéile

On Friday the 3rd of October we celebrated the Official opening of our school.  We were joined on the day by An Tanaiste, Joan Burton and representatives from public life, the main Churches and representatives from various educational bodies.  We were also very happy to be joined by principals and students from other Le Cheile schools.  It is very nice to be part of something bigger than ourselves.photo 5
