The Faculty of Health Sciences, hosted this year’s programme of events for Trinity Week on the theme of The Science of Happiness, which was open to public participation.

Trinity Week began on Monday 7th April with the announcement of the Honorary Fellows, new Fellows and Scholars of the College. The ceremony is one of the oldest, most colourful and traditional at Trinity College. The announcement is made by the Provost on the steps of the Public Theatre in Front Square surrounded by members of the Board of the College in full academic gowns and hoods with students and staff celebrating the occasion with colleagues, friends and families.

This was followed by a week-long series of events including symposia, lectures and talks on the science behind happiness, its influence on mental health and on creating balance. There was also guided walks, Tai Chi in Front Square, relaxation classes, musical performances and short films organised.

Professor Mary McCarron, Dean, Faculty of Health Sciences thanked all those who contributed to the organization of what was one of the most successful deliveries of Trinity Week.

The School of Pharmacy would like to express our sincere thanks to Dr. Helen Sheridan who gave a wonderful presentation at the Trinity Week Academic Symposium.
