SPORTS

Con­grat­u­la­tions to 3rd Year stu­dent Emma O'Brien who, based on her 4th po­si­tion in the Na­tional Fi­nals, , trav­elled to Wales with the Ir­ish Cross Coun­try Team to com­pete in the Celtic games. The race dis­tance of 3.5km in the Na­tion­als was in­creased to 4.6km, but Emma rose to the chal­lenge and was the sec­ond Ir­ish stu­dent across the line, fin­ish­ing in 14th place over- all. This was a fan­tas­tic re­sult and all at D.C.W are so proud of her achieve­ments.

On Mon­day March 24th the First Year Hockey squad, along with 35 of their class­mates headed to Mar­ley Park to face their op­po­nents Mount Anville, in the fi­nal of the Le­in­ster Schools Com­pe­ti­tion. De­spite their nerves the girls set­tled quickly and a very com­pet­i­tive game en­sued. In the first half Mount Anville scored twice from two well re­hearsed set pieces.

Full of de­ter­mi­na­tion the D.C.W girls dom­i­nated the sec­ond half and were un­lucky not to score from their own short cor­ners. Un­for­tu­nately the score re­mained 0-2 to Mount Anville. Nev­er­the­less it was a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment for the girls to reach the Fi­nal.

This was the first time a Ju­nior Hockey team had com­peted in a Le­in­ster Fi­nal. Well done to all in­volved. Many thanks to all the sup­port­ers and par­ents who trav­elled to cheer on the girls. GREASE

At this stage, the TY girls are us­ing el­bow ‘Grease' to re­move the re­sults of paint­ing sets and mak­ing props for the show. Re­hearsal are just putting the fin­ish­ing touches to what is go­ing to be a sparkling per­for­mance! The girls are get­ting their cos­tumes sorted and ‘Greased Light­en­ing ' the care is get­ting its fi­nal coat of paint. We hope that they will get well sup­ported on the nights.

See you on ei­ther Thurs­day April 3rd, Fri­day April 4th or Satur­day April 5th. ANTI-BUL­LY­ING

A pro­gramme of events were or­gan­ised for all classes this week to ad­dress the is­sue of bul­ly­ing in all its forms in­clud­ing cy­ber bul­ly­ing.

Work­shops were con­ducted by class tu­tors with ev­ery class in the school around the is­sue of bul­ly­ing and itr was made very clear as to what con­sti­tutes bul­ly­ing and when and where it takes place.

The Deputy Prin­ci­pal, Ms Gillespie, de­liv­ered a talk on the le­gal­i­ties around these is­sues to each year group and high­lighted the pos­si­ble con­se­quences of post­ing un­ac­cept­able ma­te­rial on sites such as face­book and Twit­ter-em­ploy­ers now search these sites when about to in­ter­view for staff.

As a fol­low up to the week or­gan­ised by the Head Girl, Sean Lee Davis, ear­lier in the year, it con­sol­i­dated the in­for­ma­tion for all con­cerned. The out­come is to en­sure that all in­volved in Do­mini­can Col­lege are safe and happy and in a good place to carry out their stud­ies.
