We would like to take this opportunity to say a special thanks to the Credit Union for giving us a fantastic experience of a real life interview. In particular we would like to thank Ms Janet Hayes for all her time and support. We would finally like to thank Ms Hughes and Ms Lee, our teachers, for their present and future involvement in our special company. We would not be able to do it without you.
Shockwaves Ltd is here and we’ll be bringing you a fun year. We have so many ideas for events that will make this year great! Our events will include students from our school and from our community. We are currently organising a First Year Tea Party for students in the school. It will entail fun games, activities and lots of goodies! It will take place on the 26th of October. It’ll be an exciting bonding say for all you first years.
We are also planning a Christmas concert called, ‘A Stocking Full of Stars,’ on the 14th December 2012. We will have students from our school performing on stage showing off their variety of talents. Auditions will be held after midterm break so don’t be afraid to sign up!
We hope to have the school choir, orchestra and the school traditional group to play at the concert. Tickets will be sold around November. We hope to see you all there.

We, Qwerty Ltd are the computer-based company of the four mini companies. This year we want to make the best of our transition year and we have great ideas and executions of products. Each company has a structure of members and after our interviews, a great deal of thought went into deciding the best people for the different positions. We would like to thank Nora and Sarah from the AIB Bank for conducting our interviews, and the Central Hotel for hosting them. Their help is very much appreciated.

This year we will be selling keyrings to first and second years containing their timetables, a 6th year Year Book to keep their memories of the Sacred Heart safe and together for the years to come, a Maths Dictionary for all ages to help those doing project maths. As well as our main products, we will be making many other small products such as cards and calendars, which we will be selling for our Sales Day coming up on the 14th of December!
So far, in the year we have received many orders for our keyrings in the school and as Qwerty Ltd. we hope to receive many more orders for our products not only from our school but from the public too, so as to have a very successful and productive year.
