Bray People - - SCHOOLS REPORT -


Cat Lit­tle, who is an award-win­ning film­maker and has worked in the an­i­ma­tion in­dus­try for over ten years, vis­ited St. Kil­ian's on Wed­nes­day 9th April. She de­liv­ered a talk to 5LCA and TY stu­dents. The visit was or­gan­ised by Ms Fox's 5LCA English and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions class as one of their key as­sign­ments, and well done to them for all of their hard work, as the event ran very smoothly.

Con­grat­u­la­tions also to TY stu­dents Natalie Sroka, Al­lanagh O' Dowd and Ali­son McGrath who de­signed a wel­come poster in the style of Cat's TV show Wob­bly­land. The stu­dents were as­sisted by their Art teacher, Mr. Law­less. Cat sent on a photo of the poster to Brown Bag Films, the Os­car nom­i­nated pro­duc­ers of her show. The pro­duc­ers were so im­pressed with the stu­dents' work that they posted the photo onto their web­site, which is there now for all to see. Well done to all in­volved. ORI­EN­TEER­ING

On Tues­day 8th April 31 stu­dents form St. Kil­ian's C.S. Trav­eled to Emo Court in County Laois for the Ir­ish Schools' Ori­en­teer­ing Cham­pi­onships. The weather was bright and sunny and this made for good un­der­foot con­di­tions for the run­ners.There was a de­lay in get­ting the com­pe­ti­tion un­der way and this made for ner­vous stu­dents. Stu­dents even­tu­ally set­tled and got their minds back on the job at hand.

Cour­ses were tech­ni­cally tough and this was chal­leng­ing for a num­ber of stu­dents. For many com­peti­tors, this led to slow times. The best fin­isher in the 1st Year Girls' com­pe­ti­tion was Inès Cueto who was fin­ished in 8th place from a field of 35.

The best of the 1st Year Boys was Matthew Mcdon­ald.Top of the St Kil­ian's Ju­nior Boys were Gary Shortt and John Paul Verdon with clean runs. Best of the Se­nior Boys were Evan Wil­liams and Aaron Kelly with top ten fin­ishes. De­spite her re­cent form, cur­rent Le­in­ster Cham­pion Sarah McGrath found the go­ing tough and wasn't able to match her re­cent suc­cess.

Rochelle Healy was back in good form with a clean run and a good per­for­mance. The Ori­en­teer­ing Sea­son is now draw­ing to a close, but will recom­mence in Septem­ber with fit­ness train­ing and some tech­ni­cal map train­ing. All new­com­ers are wel­come and should see Mr Law­less in Septem­ber. DIOCE­SAN LOUR­DES PIL­GRIM­AGE

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Fifth Year stu­dents Michael O' Brien, Brendan Smith, Abby O' Keeffe and Sarah Ber­ming­ham who have been selected fol­low­ing an in­ter­view process to go on the Lour­des pil­grim­age next Septem­ber. The stu­dents will take part in fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties to fi­nance the trip. We wish them the best of luck in their ef­forts. THE GREAT IR­ISH BAKE!

Well done to Mrs Dodd's 2nd Year Home Eco­nom­ics class who raised €188 on Fri­day 4th April as part of the Great Ir­ish Bake for Tem­ple Street Chil­dren's Hospi­tal. A stun­ning dis­play of Easter cup­cakes, freshly made on the day dis­ap­peared al­most in­stantly at morn­ing break. The class or­gan­ised the event pay­ing at­ten­tion to ad­ver­tis­ing, mar­ket­ing, pro­duc­tion and sell­ing. Ev­ery­one in the class did a fan­tas­tic job.

The team work was ex­cel­lent and the re­sults de­li­cious!! We are all look­ing for­ward to more de­li­cious bakes from these budding bak­ers! Thanks to Ms. Dodd and her stu­dents for all their hard work. EASTER SER­VICE OF FOR­GIVE­NESS

On Tues­day 8th April, St. Kil­ian's stu­dents went to St. Fer­gal's Church for a ser­vice of for­give­ness for Easter. Fr. Be­han con­ducted the ser­vice and many stu­dents par­tic­i­pated in the event by read­ing or car­ry­ing of­fer­ings to the al­tar. Thanks to Ms. Sin­nott, Ms. Mur­ray and Ms. Ni. Mhurchu from the R.E. depart­ment for or­gan­is­ing the ser­vice.
