Best wishes to all cast and crew mem­bers who are in­volved in our school show ‘Oliver Twist’, which takes place in the Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre in Bray this Wed­nes­day, Thurs­day and Fri­day evening.


Co­laiste Chraobh Ab­hann was well rep­re­sented at the Wick­low County En­ter­prise Board Young En­trepreneurs competition at Wick­low County Cam­pus in Rath­new on Wed­nes­day last, where they com­peted with 18 mini com­pa­nies across nine schools in Wick­low. Tran­si­tion year stu­dent Ma­rina Amoros pre­sented her mini com­pany 'Pen­di­entes', sell­ing en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly prod­ucts made from im­ported raw ma­te­ri­als and also ex­ported fin­ished prod­ucts and re­ceived ex­cel­lent feed­back.

Holly Neary and Aoife Gaffney also im­pressed the judges with their com­pany Just Bead It, and hav­ing made a very healthy profit were awarded first run­ner up tro­phy, an award and prize money for their ex­cel­lent busi­ness plan and pre­sen­ta­tion.

Four sec­ond year stu­dents – Alan­nah Bel­lamy, Emma Martin, Sinead Kin­sella and Emily Meagher also pitched their busi­ness idea of class clocks to the judges and won the award for the best dis­play for their orig­i­nally de­signed clocks which can now be seen in many class­rooms around the school. The stu­dents will go on and rep­re­sent Wick­low at the na­tional awards in Croke Park in April. Well done to all.


With co­op­er­a­tion from Ju­nior Achieve­ment Ire­land and Bank of Amer­ica Mer­rill Lynch, CCA has in­tro­duced a 6 week Bank Your Fu­ture pro­gramme. As part of this pro­gramme, a vol­un­teer from Bank of Amer­ica Mer­rill Lynch will visit both Tran­si­tion Year and fifth year busi­ness classes to con­duct some ac­tiv­i­ties and deal with top­ics such as the value of your ed­u­ca­tion in ad­di­tion to your earn­ing po­ten­tial, bal­anc­ing your own per­sonal bud­get, credit cards and stocks and shares. The stu­dents are cur­rently on week 3 of the pro­gramme


Well done to the 5th year LCVP stu­dents who co­or­di­nated and or­gan­ised a sub­ject op­tions dis­play and in­for­ma­tion event for third and tran­si­tion year stu­dents on Fri­day last. They re­searched and dis­played each of the Leav­ing Cert sub­jects to en­sure that all stu­dents would have the re­quired in­for­ma­tion to make good sub­ject choices from the many on of­fer in our school.


Congratulations to our 6th year LCVP stu­dents who re­cently par­tic­i­pated in their recorded in­ter­views. They are putting the fin­ish­ing touches to their port­fo­lios which are due in the com­ing weeks.
