J3W: Think First, Speak Second!

J3W at Assembly, Dec 6 2019

This week J3W have been reflecting on how to 'Think first, speak second'. During our assembly this morning, we asked the classes several questions which required us to think carefully before answering, which proved to be very effective. If we speak first and think second, it is difficult to take our words back. In certain situations, it is important to always think before we speak to avoid hurting others and saying something we might regret later on. 

Well done, J3W.

Hockey International visits Alex!


The J4s and J5s got a wonderful surprise today. 

They  got some ‘tips from the top’ this morning from our current Irish Ladies Hockey International Player,  Olympic contender and Alex alumna Deirdre Duke. She was so generous with her time and met our girls, signed multiple sticks and stick bags!! An inspiring moment for our players.


Big Thank You to Deirdre 😀🏑
