Comhghairdeas to all our 6th year students who sat their Irish Oral exams last week. We are sure you all did your best and you will continue to keep up your spoken Irish as much as possible. Bonne Chance to the 6th year students who are now turning their focus to the French orals, which take place all this week. 


Best of luck to the 6th year music students who sat their practical exams on Friday the 13th. We hope you all did very well. 


The HPS Team have numerous activities taking place from now to the end of the year to help staff and students keep a healthy mind and body.

The second year girls’ basketball team travelled to Oblate Hall in Inchicore for a nail biting final against Temple Carrig. CCA came out strong in the first quarter, finishing three points ahead of TCG. 

However TCG retaliated in the second quarter to go into half time with a very healthy lead. This left CCA with a lot of work to do, but the girls worked tirelessly in the third quarter with Eve Leacy in only her second match putting away numerous scores to leave CCA within two baskets of their rivals.

 TCG defended very well in the final quarter to deny CCA the win. The entire team showed great maturity against a very strong team, with TCG claiming it was the toughest match they had played all year.

Well done to each and every player for their hard work throughout the year.
