Congratulations to Emer Maguire 5th year stu­dent, win­ner of the lo­cal Ro­tary Club Lead­er­ship Award. Along with 23 other Ir­ish stu­dents, 12 from the North and 12 from the South Emer trav­elled to the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment in Stras­bourg where she had the unique op­por­tu­nity to de­bate in the Euro­pean cham­bers she also vis­ited Stor­mond and the Dáil.


Over the past two weeks both Ms. May and Ms. Stafford have taken two groups of fifth years to Glen­dalough on ecol­ogy field trips as part of their prac­ti­cal work for the leav­ing Cert. They stud­ied the plants and an­i­mals of the area and had won­der­ful worth­while days out.


Hav­ing just com­pleted Seach­tain na Gaeilge it seems the stu­dents can’t get enough of it! Tues­day this week saw 2nd years hav­ing a Ceili Mor sa halla. Ir­ish dance teacher Ms. Martina O’Rea­gan put the girls through their paces.


Good luck to all our Tran­si­tion years who are about to de­part the school for three weeks in all. They are now pre­par­ing to start their work ex­pe­ri­ence pro­grammes and many will travel to Car­ling­ford next week with Ms. Carthy and Ms. Fox for an ac­tiv­ity packed few days and some group bond­ing.


Stu­dents are presently col­lect­ing old mo­bile phones as fast as pos­si­ble. The rea­son for such fer­vor is that Jed­ward will come to the school which col­lects the most and the stu­dent who brings ten old phones in will gain a home­work pass.


The weather couldn’t have been bet­ter for the In­ter Class Hockey Tour­na­ment which was held in the school on Thurs­day last. All money col­lected from this fund rais­ing event will go to Tan­za­nia.
