Aviation Careers – ‘what happens beyond the clouds’

Maryfield College applied to join the Ryanair Role Models Roadshow, an inspiration day for female students who might think about a career with RyanairThis event was being held in Ryanair HQ in Dublin and will also be held in London, Spain and Italy.
7 of Maryfield College students were delighted to be chosen from 400 schools across the country.  At this wonderful Careers event the students were able to listen to presentations from Pilots, Chief Financial Officer, Director of Customer Services, Chief Risk Officer, Senior Engineer, Director of HR and a group of graduate entry staff.  All these positions are held by females, so it was particularly inspiring for our students.   The students really got a great insight into the various careers and advice on how to proceed in their career pathway.  A special thank you to 6th year student Roisin Boland who informed us about the application and wishing her great success as she pursues her flight training.

6th Years vs Teachers Rounders Match- Teachers Win Yet Again!

Well done but ultimately, hard luck to the 6th year pupils who took the teachers on in a game of rounders today. They played well but were no match for their older but wiser adversaries.

It’s a time honoured tradition and the teachers are currently undefeated after nearly 80 years.

 In class  4K discussed the issue of homophobia and realised that homophobic bullying begins at a very young age. They realised that books for children tend to start with traditional families of a mum, dad and two children. In order to introduce acceptance of  inclusive and diversity, they have written and illustrated a children’s book, called “I’ve Lost my Family, Can You Help Me?”

In this book Pedro the parrot gets lost and tries to find  his way home. He gets help along the way from all kinds of animals and families- a family with two lioness mums, a little hedgehog who’s is minding a baby bear, a rabbit family with mum and dad, and so on. The gorgeous illustrations by Ema T , add vibrant colour and light up the rhyming story aimed at younger children. well done to 4 K and Ms. McLoughlin!
