Buncrana Youth Club

A new youth leader has been appointed at BYC and they are looking for TY to volunteer to work as supervisors and maybe work to become leaders themselves. You do not have to have a particular skill, just a willingness to help out. The hours will count towards your community for JOhn Paul and Gaisce. Please email me your name if you are interested and the leader will come over for a chat. It is hoped that outdoor activities could begin immediately. They are open to your suggestions for the club and may run activities for you to take part in too, if you have some good suggestions. Only got three names so far for this.

News Reporters

I sent out a request for a couple of students to be news reporters for the year and Teagan McIntyre and Niamh Harkin have volunteered. This will count for their community for TY. They will put together newspaper pieces, put items on the TY notice board and basically spread the word around the school and in the community about what TY are up to. We will start with a page in the local paper summarizing what we have been up to in the first month.

Please send your ideas to the girls. Article going into paper this week. Any photos or suggestions for the girls?? What about a good headline?

There will be a prize for the student who comes up with the best headline for the piece.


Please can everyone enter at least one competition before midterm. Check the TY stand, the TY facebook. Previous admin news and the emails you have received from

I have emailed a couple of new ones to you and here are links to a couple of others.


A final reminder to register for Gaisce. I will be getting Nikki to pay the bill to them this week so everyone needs to be on it. You can log your activities online if you wish though TY in the past just filled theirs into the bronze record sheet. You do not have to do the online entries.

Fetac IT starts this week for everyone.
