Sixth Year Art Trip to Russborough House

Sixth Year Art students went on an Art Trip to Russborough House in Co. Wicklow on Tuesday, Nov. 11th.

Russborough House is a great example of Georgian architecture and the students were fortunate to get a guided tour from Mary who knows the place inside and out.

Students also got to test their problem solving skills in the maze and (being 6th years!!) had fun in the playground!

Musical Evening

Rhythm of Rockford – a musical evening, was held on October 23rd.

The event was a great success all round, with some excellent performances.

The evening was organised by TYP students and showed what fantastic talent there is among student and staff in Rockford Manor. Acts included Indian and Irish dance, rap, singing and choral performance.

The night was very well supported with 376 tickets sold and €1,350 raised for the music department. Many thanks to all who supported the show. A big thank you also to Ms. Behan, Ms. Hennigan and Ms. O’Toole for all their hard work.
