A group of our First Year stu­dents at­tended the Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre in Dublin Zoo on Fri­day March 11.

Stu­dents un­der­took a prac­ti­cal habi­tat study which is part of their Ju­nior Cer­tifi­cate Science course. The trip proved ed­u­ca­tional and en­joy­able.


Well done to our pub­lic speak­ing team for reach­ing the semi fi­nals of the 30th An­nual Men­tal Health Pub­lic Speak­ing Pro­ject on Tues­day March 8. The team con­sisted of Frances Early, Sarah Byrne, Jen­nifer O’Neill and Marta Pis­arska. Out of the one hun­dred and seventy schools in the coun­try who par­tic­i­pated in this competition, Abbey CC were in the last nine schools to reach the semi fi­nal. Un­for­tu­nately on the day Coláiste Eoin, Hack­et­stown proved wor­thy op­po­nents and they now go for­ward to the fi­nal.


On Wed­nes­day last our Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents or­gan­ised a pan­cake party in aid of the Na­tional Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal, Tal­laght. A great morn­ing was had by all and a sub­stan­tial sum of money was raised for this wor­thy cause.


Our Se­nior Girls Gaelic team trav­elled to Ark­low’s Pierce Park for the County Se­nior B Foot­ball Blitz on Wed­nes­day March 8, where they faced Loreto Bray, Coláiste Bhríde, Ark­low CC and East Glen­dalough School (EGS). Abbey CC per­formed very well in all four games win­ning against Ark­low CC and los­ing nar­rowly to EGS, Loreto Col­lege and Coláiste Bhríde in what proved to be very com­pet­i­tive games. Louise Dick­en­son, Chelsee Snell, Ni­amh O’Brien and Char­maine Hig­gins were the best per­form­ers on the day.


On Wed­nes­day March 8, Abbey CC and De La Salle, Wick­low com­bined to rep­re­sent Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin in the County Se­nior Rugby League. The op­po­si­tion for this highly com­pet­i­tive open­ing game at Ash­town Lane were East Glen­dalough School. The fi­nal score was 31 – 25 to Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin. Wed­nes­day, March 15 sees the team out again when they travel to Gorey to play Coláiste Bhríde, Carnew in round two of the league fix­tures.


Hand­ball has con­tin­ued to thrive in Abbey CC this year. On Thurs­day, March 10 ten of our First Year stu­dents re­ceived lessons from hand­ball ex­perts Mr. Richard Wil­loughby and Mr. Jerome Wil­loughby. Richard com­mented on the sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment made by a num­ber of stu­dents since last year. We would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank Richard and Jerome for shar­ing their ex­per­tise and en­thu­si­asm for the sport.
