SPORT­ING NEWS

It has a very hec­tic few weeks here in St. Ger­ard’s with nu­mer­ous fi­nals and semi-fi­nals tak­ing place in all dis­ci­plines. In the first in­stance we are over­joyed with our First Year win in the Le­in­ster League Fi­nal. This was our maiden ven­ture into this stage of the competition and meet­ing us there were Rath­down School.

The game it­self was a truly magnificent fix­ture with both sides dis­play­ing con­sid­er­able poise and skill in at­tack and de­fence.

The first half was score­less putting pres­sure on both teams to at­tack in the sec­ond half. With a great move Elana Tice struck home what would be the win­ning goal for St. Ger­ard’s.

As the fi­nal whis­tle blew there were scenes of un­bri­dled cel­e­bra­tion and joy from coach­ing staff and play­ers alike. This is our first time to win the Le­in­ster League in First year and we are very proud of our achieve­ment. Well done girls!

Our Mi­nor Hockey team were un­for­tu­nately beaten by New­park Com­pre­hen­sive in the Le­in­ster Se­nior League Semi Fi­nal.

Al­though we put up tough re­sis­tance New­park proved that bit too strong on the field with the fi­nal score line read­ing 0-3. We wish New­park ev­ery suc­cess in the Fi­nal of the League.

Our U13’s played su­perb rugby at the Ora­tory School Sevens in the UK early in March and took home the win­ners tro­phies in both the 1st and 2nd team sec­tions and the Gov­er­nor’s Cup for Ex­cel­lence in Rugby. The pre­vail­ing cool weather did lit­tle to de­ter our spir­ited tal­ent. This is the first oc­ca­sion since 1978 that we have taken the hon­ours in the 1st competition. Well done on the tremen­dous per­for­mances and we look for­ward to our re­turn next year to de­fend out ti­tles.

Our SCT, hav­ing played some out­stand­ing rugby this sea­son, were beaten by CC Ro­screa in the semi fi­nal of the Le­in­ster Schools Cup last week. How­ever we will meet CC Ro­screa again in the fi­nal of the Le­in­ster League later in the month. Our JCT will also play Ro­screa in the fi­nal of the Fr. God­frey Cup on Wed­nes­day 23rd March in Tem­pleville (St. Mary’s, Tem­pleogue) at 2.30pm. All sup­port wel­come!

THE ARTS

Congratulations to all those who par­tic­i­pated in the School Art Competition 2011.

The win­ners were Katie Mur­phy – Se­nior School Competition and Katie Myler and Shane Ken­neally – Se­nior School Run­ners Up. Their work was on dis­play at our Art Ex­hi­bi­tion last week along with nu­mer­ous other pieces. It is a great achieve­ment to have won this competition and the Art Ex­hi­bi­tion af­forded our tal­ented stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to dis­play their work.

Fi­nally well done to all in­volved in the RTE ‘Ru­mour Room’ pro­duc­tion last week. It pro­vides stu­dents an op­por­tu­nity to air their views and opin­ions on a host of is­sues. The pro­gramme was aired on Net­work 2 last week.
