HEALTH PRO­MOT­ING SCHOOLS

Coláiste Chraobh Ab­hann was awarded the Health Pro­mot­ing Schools’ Flag on the day of our an­nual spon­sored 10k walk on Wednesday, Oc­to­ber 4. The Health Pro­mot­ing Schools (HPS) Team is a com­mu­nity of stu­dents, teach­ers and par­ents that strives to im­prove the men­tal and phys­i­cal health of the whole school com­mu­nity.

Caro­line Ma­hon, Health Pro­mot­ing Of­fi­cer from Black­rock Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre pre­sented the flag to the team at a cel­e­bra­tion cer­e­mony in the school last Wednesday. She stated that we are the first school in Wick­low to be awarded the flag and com­mended the great work be­ing done in the school in the area of well­be­ing.

Miss Egan, who is led this great ini­tia­tive, wishes to thank the team for their con­tin­ued ef­forts in mak­ing our school a happy and healthy place for all. CCA 10K WALK

Con­grat­u­la­tions to ev­ery­one who par­tic­i­pated in the an­nual 10k walk that took place on Wednesday, Oc­to­ber 4. The event was or­gan­ised by the CCA par­ents’ coun­cil, with staff, par­ents and stu­dents en­joy­ing the op­por­tu­nity to get out and take in the coastal air.

The PE depart­ment or­gan­ised a num­ber of sports events for the se­nior stu­dents on the school grounds, while two stu­dents, Troy Scully and Colm Flynn chose to run 12k as part of the event. We hope that this event will raise funds that will go to­wards other school based events and ac­tiv­i­ties. Thanks to ev­ery­one in­volved. MATHS WEEK

From Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 2, to Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 6, Coláiste Charbh Ab­hann stu­dents cel­e­brated maths week with nu­mer­ous ac­tiv­i­ties and events tak­ing place through­out the week. Un­der the di­rec­tion of the Maths Depart­ment, stu­dents were en­cour­aged to see how maths in­flu­ence so many as­pects of our daily lives, with the fo­cus of tak­ing maths out of the class­room and into our ev­ery­day sur­round­ings.

Events in­cluded treasure hunts, quizzes, a TY ‘build a farm’ ac­tiv­ity and a scale mea­sure of the heights of celebri­ties, with some in­ter­est­ing heights for all stu­dents to gauge them­selves against. There were daily maths puz­zles and posters on dis­play in the GP Area too. Well done to all in­volved. MU­SI­CAL CAST AN­NOUNCED

CAP­TAIN FAN­TAS­TIC
