Millinery Classes at WHS

There is a large range of extra curricular activities in WHS. Millinery classes commenced last term with Ms. Dennigan. Classes take place on a Tuesday evening from 4.15 to 5.15pm and are open to students from all years to participate. Within these classes students learned about the history of fascinators, worked with sinamay and learned about various trimmings and techniques in fascinator making.  Each student designed and completed their own fascinator by the end of the short course and are now able to make their own at home. Ms. Dennigan would like to congratulate all the students who made a fabulous variety of fascinators!

"Turning of the sod" for the new all weather pitch.

It was a pleasure to welcome Lisa Jacob to WHS today as the guest speaker at the Prize Giving ceremony. Before lunch, Lisa “turned the sod” on the site of the new all weather hockey pitch which will soon be constructed at Wilson’s.

She finished her Irish senior hockey career having played 139 times, and then joined the Irish Women’s 7s Squad for over a year. While playing hockey she joined semi-professional Dutch team SCHC in Utrecht. Lisa was part of the RTE analysis of the recent Hockey World Cup where Ireland claimed the silver medal.
