24th October 2014


Many thanks to all staff and students who hosted Open Night in the school on Thursday last, October 24th.  There was a great turnout of people from the community and the surrounding areas.  Prospective students were afforded the opportunity to view the wide range of subjects and extra-curricular activities which we have on offer.  


A reminder to all parents and guardians of sixth year students that their parent/teacher/student meeting will take place on Thursday 6th November from 4.15p.m. to 6.45p.m.  Classes for all students will finish at 3.30pm to facilitate this meeting.  


One group of LCVP students completed their industrial visit on Monday 20th October.  Students visited Janet’s Country Fayre in Kilcoole, where they were provided with a guided tour of the business and Janet spoke to them about her successful business model.  The students thoroughly enjoyed the visit and gained a great insight into the production industry.  A sincere thank you to Janet for facilitating this successful industrial visit and providing students with a wealth of information for their LCVP portfolio. 


Congratulations to the First Year girls who played in the Football B Blitz final last Thursday in Ballinakill.  They had a great day competing, finishing second in their group.  Well done to all the girls involved. 


A Maths competition recently took place in the school.  PRISM stands for Problem Solving for Irish Second level Mathematicians.  The Junior Cycle winners in the school were Daniel Diamond, Seán Garland and Georgia Evans.  The Senior Cycle winner was Peter Kinsella.  The organisers of the event will now choose the best students in the country to go forward to the next round. 


Hard luck to the U15 Girls Soccer team who lost their match against East Glendalough recently.  It was a great effort from the girls and they had a very strong defence line.  Goals were scored by Captain Aoife Murtagh and an own goal from the other team.  Despite leading 2-0 throughout the match, the opposition came back strong after the first half.  The girls played great and never gave up with the help of their coach Ms Cousins.  There was also great assistance on the day from Conor Clack, Clodagh Bradshaw and Max Clarke.  All the girls put in a great team performance, with player of the match going to Alannah Melia. 


Fifth and Sixth year music students participated in a music workshop with the renowned artist Caoimhín O Raghallaigh.  They had to produce a virtual score.  They then attended his concert in the Mermaid in Bray along with their teacher Ms Armstrong.   Caoimhín played a hardanger d'amore and had his own virtual guests who played and danced along with his performance.
