JCSP Trip to Print Museum & EPIC

Category : Post Primary

We went to The National Print Museum as part of our JCSP Newsletter project. We had a tour guide, her name is Christine. The tour was very interesting. We learnt all about how printing works. Printing was first developed in 1439 when a German goldsmith Johanne Gutenburg invented the type letter. We also learnt about the printing process over the years, including how the 1916 proclamation was printed. This was really interesting, there wasn’t enough letters to print the whole Proclamation and the letter P was made into a letter R using sealing wax. The letter O was made into a C by cutting out a part of the letter O. We really enjoyed the Print Museum. We got to make our own printed poster using the type cast letters, this was great fun. The posters were “wanted” posters. Then we went to Milano restaurant where we had delicious pizzas. After that, we visited the EPIC Museum, the lrish Emigration museum. This museum is a fully digital museum. lt is interactive, enlightening and visually beautiful. It tells the captivating story of a small island (Ireland) with a big impact on the world. Overall we had a fantastic and interesting day. Thank you to our teachers Ms.Owens and Ms.McFarlane.

JCSP Film Making Initiative

Category : Post Primary

‘I have a Dream….’

Holy Family School JCSP students participated in a film making initiative. Along with their teacher Sean Herlihy, professionals
from the film industry organised a 3 days workshop with our students. These include Director Cathy Heffernan, Mind the Gap Producer Anne Heffernan, Videographer Sean Power (Powerpix Productions), Ray Watson (Go Pro) and Lorraine Creed (photographer).
Over the 3 days, Holy Family students planned, wrote a script,  assigned roles, auditioned, directed, produced and edited a short film about their dream career. The students are so proud of the finished high quality short film. I think they deserve an Oscar!

Not a dry eye in the house

On Sunday 9th December nine students from Holy Family Deaf Choir (Junior and Senior) performed in the Round Room of the Mansion House Dublin.  Some of the songs we performed were Snow is Falling, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, Let it Go just to mention just a few of the songs.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as we brought the 500 strong audience to their feet applauding to us.  Thank you to our Lord Mayor Niall Ring for the invitation and giving us this opportunity.  Hopefully we will be back again next year.
