Com­mis­er­a­tions to the Se­nior camo­gie team who were nar­rowly de­feated on a score­line of 4-6 to 4-4 by St Kevin’s in the semi-fi­nal last week. Many thanks to the sixth year mem­bers who played in their fi­nal game rep­re­sent­ing the school and we wish them well in their fu­ture camo­gie en­deav­ours.


Con­grat­u­la­tions to Hyrum Scott, Lucy Shortt and So­phie Heaton, who are now through to the third round of the Wick­low De­bates. They put in an ex­cel­lent per­for­mance last Thurs­day to secure an­other win for the school. Well done.


Well done to the stu­dents who rep­re­sented the school ex­cep­tion­ally well last week at the East Le­in­ster Schools Cross Coun­try event. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Troy Scully and Eve Leacy, who were place fourth and third in their re­spec­tive races and thus com­fort­ably qual­i­fy­ing for the Le­in­ster com­pe­ti­tion.


Un­for­tu­nately, the Se­nior Boys Gaelic Foot­ball team bowed out of the Le­in­ster Com­pe­ti­tion on Mon­day last af­ter be­ing de­feated by Coláiste Eoin Hack­et­stown on a score­line of 5-15 to 3-13. It was a tight af­fair through­out, and while it looked like CCA had the up­per hand com­ing into the last 15 min­utes, Hack­et­stown man­aged to fin­ish the stronger of the two teams and scored some vi­tal goals. CCA will now con­cen­trate on the Wick­low Se­nior schools com­pe­ti­tion.


The school is cur­rently or­gan­is­ing a spon­sored cy­cle which will take place on Fri­day, April 28. The 50km cy­cle will see teach­ers and stu­dents leav­ing from Kil­coole and go­ing as far north as Kil­macanogue and as far south as Rath­new be­fore re­turn­ing to the school.


We look for­ward to wel­com­ing all fifth year stu­dents and their par­ents and guardians to the PTS meet­ing to­mor­row, Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 2, at 4.15 p.m. Stu­dents are be­gin­ning to look at their op­tions for third level, and set tar­gets for sixth year. All fifth year stu­dents will meet with their men­tor teacher to dis­cuss their third level as­pi­ra­tions as part of the evening. Classes for all stu­dents will fin­ish at 3.30 p.m. to fa­cil­i­tate this meet­ing.


The cast and crew of this year’s CCA mu­si­cal are hard at work re­hears­ing for the show, which takes place in March. Please con­tact the Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre to en­quire about tick­ets at 01 272 4030 for the show, which will run from Wed­nes­day, March 8, to Fri­day, March 10, in­clu­sive.
