SWIM­MING COM­PE­TI­TION

Patrick Keogh a First Year stu­dent at Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin par­tic­i­pated in the Se­nior Schools Sec­tion of the Le­in­ster Schools' Swim­ming Com­pe­ti­tion on Sun­day April 6th. The com­pe­ti­tion took place in the Trin­ity Sports Com­plex, Don­aghmede. De­spite stiff com­pe­ti­tion Patrick re­ceived fourth place in the 50SC me­tre bresst­stroke event. We would like to con­grat­u­late Patrick on his achieve­ment and we wish him suc­cess in his fu­ture sport­ing en­deav­ours. MEN­TOR-LED STO­RY­TELLING

One of Ire­land’s best known sto­ry­teller’s, Niall de Búrca, paid a visit to the school on Wed­nes­day last to re­gale our First Year stu­dents with strange and eerie tales from Wick­low. Niall has be­come a reg­u­lar vis­i­tor to our school over the past three years and never fails to en­thral stu­dents. Stu­dents thor­oughly en­joyed this seem­ingly ‘old-fash­ioned’ form of en­ter­tain­ment. The event was or­gan­ised by our Se­nior Men­tor team who proved them­selves very ca­pa­ble. SE­NIOR PRE­FECT INI­TIA­TIVE

Our Se­nior Pre­fect team fa­cil­i­tated a Sec­ond Year quiz on Wed­nes­day April 9th. While the stu­dents en­joyed the event there was an air of com­pe­ti­tion through­out. The win­ning team con­sisted of Zach Kenny Mur­phy, Katie O’Neill, Dara Bushe and Leah Lyons. Well done to all in­volved es­pe­cially the Se­nior Pre­fect team who en­sured that the quiz ran seam­lessly. ORAL/PRAC­TI­CAL EX­AM­I­NA­TIONS

Prac­ti­cal and oral State Ex­am­i­na­tions are cur­rently tak­ing place in var­i­ous sub­ject ar­eas such as Ger­man, French, Agri­cul­tural Sci­ence and Mu­sic. Stu­dents have been work­ing dili­gently in prepa­ra­tion for these ex­am­i­na­tions which give our stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to show their true po­ten­tial. JU­NIOR FOOT­BALL

Our First Year boys foot­ball team played St. Kevin’s, Dunlavin in the First Year boys’ Gaelic foot­ball B cham­pi­onship on Mon­day April 7th. Even though the team bat­tled very hard through­out the game and did them­selves and our school proud with their per­for­mance they could not over­come the strong Dunlavin side. There were some great in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances on the day, with Patrick Reynolds in goal and Patrick was Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin man of the match. Well done to all in­volved for their ef­fort through­out the year and we look for­ward to next year’s com­pe­ti­tions. BAS­KET­BALL

Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin girls’ bas­ket­ball team re­cently played against Avon­dale CC in the last game of the league and started well. Emma Cruise scored two lovely bas­kets be­fore Avon­dale CC replied and took the lead at the end of the first quar­ter. Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin never got into their rhythm and Avon­dale CC dom­i­nated the first half. In the third quar­ter Coláiste Chill Mhan­táin threw ev­ery­thing at Avon­dale CC but could not match the scores. In the fi­nal it was Avon­dale CC that pre­vailed af­ter an ab­sorb­ing bat­tle.

Stu­dents tak­ing part in the St Kil­ian’s Clean Up Day: Chloe Byrne, Ni­cole Fen­nelly, Gemma Whyte, Mayling Chong and Natasha Earls.
