Friday's Photo

 Today's photograph is by Jack Cherry in Form IV. It was shot on a Canon EOS 1000D early on a November afternoon last year. He achieved this interesting effect by twisting the lens while directing the camera up into the blue sky.

After a few days delay due to snow the College re-opened last night for Boarders and classes resume today for all pupils. There is a busy term ahead with preparation for Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate examinations. The non-exam Forms will aslo be busy completing various projects.
