MI­NOR B HOCKEY

Well done to the Mi­nor B hockey team who drew 0-0 against a very com­pet­i­tive team from King’s Hos­pi­tal. The Cadette A bas­ket­ball team won their match against Loreto Foxrock and are now through to the Loreto league semi-fi­nal. The un­der 16 Bad­minton team won their match against St Raphaela’s re­cently. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the par­tic­i­pat­ing play­ers.

Two of our stu­dents par­tic­i­pated re­cently in the Le­in­ster Ir­ish Danc­ing Cham­pi­onships. Megan Ma­hon of 238 won two first places in the com­pe­ti­tion and Natalie Byrne from 634 won two prizes for par­tic­i­pat­ing in team dances at the cham­pi­onships too. Well done girls.

In 633 Ni­amh O’Brien sat her HSK level 3 exam which is a Chi­nese pro­fi­ciency test. Ni­amh has been study­ing Chi­nese in school since first year. We wish her well as she awaits her re­sults.

TY RE­TREAT

On Fri­day 5th De­cem­ber all Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents had a Re­treat. The re­treat was held in the Con­cert Hall and led by Gerry Kee­gan. The main theme of the re­treat was that we are all “Unique and Spe­cial”.

The main as­pects of the re­treat were; song/mu­sic and per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence. Other as­pects of the re­treat in­cluded be­ing more “aware” of your­self in the present mo­ment and quiet re­flec­tion. The Tran­si­tion Year re­treat was very en­joy­able and thought-pro­vok­ing.
