Vol.16 Issue 4 Powerful Debate at the Davis College Model United Nations. Eoin Murphy, Cathal O’Riordan, Nicole Leeson McCarthy, Kate Walsh in City Hall. St Colmans’ Community College was well represented at the recent Davis College Model United Nations which sat in Cork City Hall in January. Students from Transition Year and Fifth Year went to participate in the debates on critical topics including resolving international conflicts, and negotiating trade deals. Each student did extremely well in acting as a delegate for their chosen nation. Our students were Dean Horgan, Eoin Murphy, Nicole Leeson-McCarthy, Cathal O’Riordan, Kyra Owers, and Katie Walsh. Delegates drafted new resolutions, which act as laws, debated changes to these resolutions, and voted whether or not to implement these new laws. Our fifth year student, Eoin Murphy was honoured with the award for ‘Best New Delegate.’ This is especially impressive given the hundreds of delegates at the event. This was the first time St. Colman’s Community College had delegates at the Model United Nations, and it surely won’t be the last. Very well done to the delegates on their speeches and their contributions to a very successful week. Eoin Murphy, Cathal O’Riordan, Nicole Leeson McCarthy, Kyra Owers.

Code Like A Girl Code Like a Girl - Pictured above are some of our Transition Year girls who are participating in a Vodafone initiative called Code Like a Girl which is aimed at empowering women and helping young people increase their skillset through technology. Coding is becoming one of the most in demand skills across industries as an increasing number of businesses now rely on computer code. Half of all programming openings are in industries outside of technology, such as finance, healthcare and manufacturing, while recent research found that coding has become a core skill that bolsters a candidate’s chances of commanding a high salary. The course content provides basic knowledge of computer languages and development programmes. Students will be taught basic HTML and CSS over a week culminating in a website presentation from each team.
