BellTIME BellTIME Art and Photography Showcase CELEBRATING 10th – 11th May 2018 SALLYNOGGIN COLLEGE Sallynoggin College is celebrating a very special birthday this year! An unbelievable 50 years of teaching are behind us. With each of these fabulous 50 years behind us, Sallynoggin College of Further Education has evolved, and seen many changes within the college and our community. Our students have grown up and have progressed in their careers. They have recommended their children, friends and family members to come and study with us. Some past students have even come back to teach with us. Our students are working all around the world and each year they give us a great deal to be proud of. We are delighted to be able to look forward to many more interesting careers and life journeys beginning at Sallynoggin College this year. As part of our celebrations of this 50th year, we will be enjoying plenty of new events and activities with our students over the coming months. PERFORMING ARTS SHOWCASE, at the Lexicon, Dun Laoghaire, 16th to 19th April 2018 Our Art and Photography students will present an end-of-year Exhibition of their work in the auditorium of Sallynoggin College in May 2018. Taking a trip down memory lane, they will also present artwork and photography which celebrates some of our past student’s work. For those of you who missed our Open Day this will be a perfect chance to pop in, visit the college and join in our 50th celebrations. It’s all hush, hush at the moment, as the Level 6 Advanced Performing Arts students are keeping their show under wraps while they devise their characters and scenes. However, we can reveal that it will be set in a TV studio and will feature lots of comedic scenes and characters. As for the Level 5 students; as we speak they are well into rehearsals for an adaptation of A.R. Gurney’s ‘The Dining Room’, a play set in one dining-room over a few decades. Each actor will play a range of different roles throughout. It all promises to be a week of engaging theatre. Can’t wait!!! “I learned and achieved so much in two years and thoroughly enjoyed making friends and eventually qualifying in advanced hair and beauty. Co- ordinators were wonderful and all the staff are so pleasant and ready to help. Best decision I made and I would recommend the college to anyone who is looking to achieve career and future goals.” Mairead Donnelly “Thanks to the excellent course in social studies I did here years ago, I graduated in a level 8 with honors in Social Science. It was the level five in SCFE which got me into university, as well as giving me crucial study skills. I'm now going on to do my master’s degree!” Styled by Kayleigh Mc Donnell & Meagan Swift David Watson WE ARE FASHION – Wednesday 18th April 2018 32 Fashion Industry Practice students have been developing themes, mood-boards and ideas for our upcoming Fashion Event. They will be styling and showcasing looks that celebrate 50 years of fashion as part of our SCFE 50th celebrations. A retrospective of 10 years of Fashion Industry Practice photo-shoots, presenting looks styled by our past students, will also be on display at Filmbase during the Fashion Event. Model castings will be taking place throughout the college over the coming months, with students from all courses in the college participating in the show. Fashion Design students are also busily crafting their design ideas into finely constructed garments and we look forward to seeing them present their visions for the future of fashion at this year’s We Are Fashion Event on Wednesday 18th April in Filmbase, Temple Bar.
