Last week our stu­dents sat the Christ­mas ex­ams. The ex­ams were held over the week and stu­dents were ex­am­ined in all their sub­jects. Many hours of hard study were put in dur­ing the last few weeks and the ex­ams are a good op­por­tu­nity for the stu­dents to as­sess their learn­ing, well done to all in thee ex­ams.


Wel­come back to the tran­si­tion year stu­dents from their re­cent work ex­pe­ri­ence. The stu­dents were very busy try­ing out var­i­ous ca­reers and went to two dif­fer­ent work place­ments to give them a taste of what is in­volved in full time work. The stu­dents all en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and found it to be time well spent.

The fourth years have also been busy re­cently col­lect­ing for the Hope foun­da­tion which is a char­ity in­volved in child cen­tred projects in In­dia. Well done to all who col­lected.


Many thanks to the great num­ber of stu­dents who are cur­rently work­ing on this year’s Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions. Many hours of work go into this each year and at present the stu­dents are work­ing on this project.


Ire­land’s first schools Ul­ti­mate Fris­bee tour­na­ment took place in Tal­laght on Fri­day Novem­ber 21. Eight boys’ teams and four girls’ teams com­peted in this in­au­gu­ral tour­na­ment as Ul­ti­mate Fris­bee con­tin­ues to grow across the coun­try and in schools in par­tic­u­lar. Seven stu­dents from St. Kilian’s com­peted in the boys divi­sion and started off well, winning their first three games to top their open­ing pool. Victory against Gon­zaga was es­pe­cially sat­is­fy­ing as they were seen as the main con­tenders to the ti­tle. St. Kilian’s con­tin­ued to ease past op­po­si­tion winning their quar­ter and semi-fi­nals with a safe of­fen­sive line and good de­fen­sive run­ning, beat­ing a sec­ond Gon­zaga team and a team from Dun­leer.

The fi­nal was a re­play be­tween St. Kilian’s and Gon­zaga and proved wor­thy of the oc­ca­sion. Gon­zaga’s ex­tra num­bers helped as they raced to an early lead.

How­ever, St. Kilian’s re­mained calm and fought back to tie the game. Points were then traded and at full time the scores were level. Mov­ing into sud­den death both teams threw ev­ery­thing at the op­po­si­tion in a tense five min­utes where no­body wanted to make a mis­take. Gon­zaga even­tu­ally made the winning score and prompted a mini pitch inva- sion. Rob­bie Bren­nan picked up the medal for player of the tour­na­ment. It was a great day for all com­peti­tors and St. Kilian’s will look to grow from the ex­pe­ri­ence, in­crease the player base within the school and come back stronger next year.
