Learn Through Lego Maths
Mr Stones 3rd year maths class have been busy this year devising a new program in conjunction with local primary school Scoil Iosa. The project titled “Maths through Lego” gives the 3rd year boys an opportunity to become the teacher as they create a number of fun activities for a maths workshop with the 3rd and 4th class students of Scoil Iosa.
The project so far has become a great success with the primary school students showing enormous enthusiasm for the activities. The Greenhill boys are hard at work creating new activities and can’t wait to get back into the classroom.

The workshop related to human rights, one world, our community, inter-generational, equality, mental and physical well-being, environmental and many other issues.
Glasnevin Cemetery History Trip
Following the release of the Film Documentary "One Million Dubliners" Ms O' Mara's 6th Year History students visited Glasnevin Cemetery on Wednesday the 17th of December. We kick started our morning with a hot coffee in the cafe- this set us up for the very informative and interesting tour of the cemetry. Our tour guide Annie gave us a fascinating insight to the lives and deaths of many of our key personalities in our history course including Daniel O' Connell, Eamon De Valera and Micheal Collins. After our tour we spent some time in the WW1 museum before jumping on the number 9 back to Greenhills College. We had a really enjoyable day.
