Coláiste Games.

Pictured are the certificate winners from the recent Coláiste Games event that was held in our school. The games consisted of a series of school wide events that took place over a three-week period during which our entire student population was divided in to five teams and invited to participate in competitions across a variety of areas to earn points for their teams. Competitions included music, make-up, science, hurling skills, comórtas gaeilge, penalty shootouts, baking showstoppers, crossbar challenges, 5km runs, the list goes on! All in all the games encouraged teamwork, cooperation, creativity and brought a sense of fun to our corridors. Well done to all who participated, especially the Blue team who ran out the overall winners having accumulated an impressive 835 points. Our thanks to Ms. O Donoghue and Mr. McCormack and their team for all their work in organising the Games which were thoroughly enjoyed by all the students.

Healthy Relationships Programme

On Thursday 4th November we had a Healthy Relationships programme delivered to our LCA and Transition year students. This was informative and beneficial for all.




Our 6th and 3rd year students sat their house exams this week for all subjects. This will be good preparation and will stand to them before they sit their mock exams in February.
