Many thanks to the par­ents and guardians of our First year stu­dents who at­tended the First year par­ent-teacher-stu­dent meet­ing on Thurs­day 17th Jan­uary. Our First year stu­dents have had a very suc­cess­ful first term, mak­ing the tran­si­tion from pri­mary to sec­ond-level. We wish them well for the rest of the school year.


Par­ents and guardians of Fifth year stu­dents are in­vited to an In­for­ma­tion Evening on Tues­day 22nd Jan­uary at 7.30pm at the school. The theme of the evening is “Study and In­tro­duc­tion to Col­leges”. The meet­ing will be an op­por­tu­nity for par­ents and guardians to be in­formed about the aca­demic op­por­tu­ni­ties of­fered to their childen, and to un­der­stand the third level paths open to them.

Par­ents will be in­formed about var­i­ous col­lege op­tions, stu­dent men­tor­ing and will be given ad­vice on ways in which stu­dents can en­hance their aca­demic progress. We look for­ward to wel­com­ing as many par­ents and guardians as pos­si­ble to this evening.


We were sad to hear of the pass­ing of Ian McKeever, who ac­com­pa­nied sev­eral of our se­nior and past pupils on a climb of Kil­i­man­jaro last sum­mer. The trip was very mem­o­rable for our stu­dents and a huge op­por­tu­nity which would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the in­put of Ian. MU­SI­CAL RE­HEARSALS

Re­hearsals for the up­com­ing school mu­si­cal have recom­menced! This year’s mu­si­cal, ‘All Shook Up’, will be per­formed in the Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre in Bray, on Wed­nes­day 13th, Thurs­day 14th and Fri­day 15th March 2013. Stu­dents and staff are look­ing for­ward to a great show and the ex­cite­ment is al­ready build­ing. Tick­ets are avail­able from the Mer­maid box of­fice, on (01) 2723140, at www.mer­maid­arts­cen­ and through the school. We look for­ward to see­ing ev­ery­one there!


All Fifth year French stu­dents went on a visit to the Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre last Thurs­day, to see a spe­cial screen­ing of 'Le gamin au velo' or­gan­ised by the Ir­ish Film In­sti­tute. The out­ing was hugely en­joyed by all. Many thanks to Ms Downey and Ms Cum­mins, Fifth year French teach­ers, for or­gan­is­ing this trip.


We also look for­ward to wel­com­ing Martin Moli­tor, our newly ap­pointed French lan­guage as­sis­tant, who will com­mence his work at Coláiste Chraobh Ab­hann at the end of Jan­uary. Martin will fo­cus on work­ing with se­nior stu­dents to pre­pare them for their Leav­ing Cer­tifi­cate French oral ex­am­i­na­tion, and will work on ac­tive projects with ju­nior stu­dents, to en­cour­age the use of French through­out the school.
