Ark­low CBS Gaelic team beat the Ark­low Com­mu­nity Col­lege team on Fri­day last hands down with an im­pres­sive score line of 6 goals and 15 points to 2 goals and 3 points! Well done lads.


Fri­day last saw our Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents col­lect­ing at var­i­ous points all over Ark­low Town in aid of the Osephageal Cancer so­ci­ety. The stu­dents man­aged to raise a large sum of money for the char­ity.


Four stu­dents of ark­low CBS at­tended hurl­ing tri­als for the Wick­low Schools team. These stu­dents are Tier­nan Mel­lon, Bren­dan Barnes, David Barnes, Jack Somers, Jack Jame­son, Conor Hughes and Pa­trick Dempsey.


Last Thurs­day a meet­ing for par­ents of in­com­ing Tran­si­tion Year and fifth year stu­dents was held in Ark­low CBS. This was an in­for­ma­tion evening for par­ents to give them all the de­tails re­lat­ing to the se­nior cy­cle on of­fer in Ark­low CBS. This meet­ing was well at­tended by par­ents and all were im­pressed at the range and di­ver­sity of the cur­ricu­lum on of­fer.


On Wed­nes­day last Mrs. Aine Ho­gan, a so­lic­i­tor in the town came to Ark­low CBS and spent the af­ter­noon talk­ing to and en­gag­ing with the Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents.

Mrs. Ho­gan gave the stu­dents de­tails of all the tasks she per­forms in her role as a so­lic­i­tor and also an­swered a huge range of ques­tions from the stu­dents.

Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents are very grate­ful to Mrs. Ho­gan for not only giv­ing up her time so gen­er­ously but also for spon­sor­ing a Law School Day which they par­tic­i­pated in on Tues­day. This was an ex­pen­sive course and Mrs. Ho­gan cov­ered the whole cost of it. Ark­low CBS would like to ex­press their ap­pre­ci­a­tion to Mrs. Ho­gan for her gen­eros­ity.


On Tues­day last a Gal­way bar­ris­ter called James Fahy at­tended the school and spent a day with the Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents. The stu­dents learn d about all as­pects of the Law and got to per­form a mock mur­der trial also. Stu­dents thor­oughly en­joyed the day and found it very in­for­ma­tive. Thanks to lo­cal so­lic­i­tor Mrs. Aine Ho­gan for spon­sor­ing the course in full.
