Senior Girls Football

Congratulations to our Senior Girls Football Team who won the Senior A Shield in Laragh GAA against Scoil Chonglais, Baltinglass. Our girls put in a superb performance to come out winners on a scoreline of 10-14 to 4-2.

Team Captain Charlotte Nagle collected the shield on behalf of CCA. Well done to all of our girls on an outstanding win and a truly excellent year!

Head Boy and Head Girl

The position of Head Boy and Head Girl is an extremely important one in Coláiste Chraobh Abhann and is the most senior student role in our school. These students are the leaders of the student community and they are an important link between students and staff. They act as role models for other students. They also perform a variety of functions during the course of the year. This year our head boy and head girl Ryan and Alexandra have performed their duties in an excellent efficient manner. We would like to thank them for their commitment shown during the year and also to acknowledge the support they received from Jack and Abbie, Deputy Head Boy and Girl.

When choosing Head Boy and Girl the key qualities that we look for include the following; proven and potential leadership skills, contribution to the school through service and involvement in different groups, self-management, the ability to connect with and relate to younger students, and the ability to be an excellent role model for the student body and school community.

It gives us great pleasure to announce for 2023-2024 school year our Head Boy and Head Girl in Coláiste Chraobh Abhann is Cayden Elliott and Ella McAulay. Cayden and Ella will be supported in their role by Sean Byrne and Sophie Murray Lacey, Deputy Head Boy and Girl. We look forward to working with the student leaders next year.

Student Sporting Success

We are very proud of 3rd Year student Mason Melia who is currently in Hungary as part of the U17 Irish Football squad competing in the European Championships. Mason has been a key player of the team and scored 2 crucial goals in the last game against Hungary to ensure the team's spot in the Quarter Finals. Well done Mason!
