Hockey Blitz

Well done to all the girls in first year who took part in the hockey blitz on November 25th in villiers and crescent comprehensive.The teams played very well in all their games. Special  thanks to the Transition year students (Grace, Leah, Emma, Katie, Emily, Alicia, Rachel, Jennifer, Gillian, Niamh and Lucy) for the help and support they gave to the teams and teachers on the day.


Senior football match

The senior football girls got off to a flying start by scoring the opening point against Hazelwood. The conditions of the pitch were poor due to the amount of rainfall the night before which made it very hard to solo with the ball without falling. The other team started to build more momentum and one by one got scores over the bar. When the halftime whistle blew the score was close but the home team were ahead. In the second half Sinead Mc started to dominate in midfield which lead to a goal by Aine O’Loughlin. It was a tough match and the girls fought hard but in the end the team came out with a loss. Hard luck girls!!


Petersburg outdoor adventure centre

Last week the whole 4th year group went on an outdoor pursuits trip to Petersburg in County Galway from Tuesday to Friday.  It was a very eventful trip. Students took part in water activities such as Gorge Walking, Kayaking, Caving, Stand up Paddle Boarding. Land Activities included Abseiling, Hill Walking (1&2), Orienteering, Obstacle Course (Army Style) and Rock Climbing. All of the students took part in most of these activities.  Students stayed in dormitory accommodation. Ms Butler, Ms Moynihan and Mr Kelly accompanied us.

On the way up to Petersburg we stopped at Galway Shopping Centre for an hour where we stocked up on goodies, and to have a bite to eat. Petersburg was still 2 hours away. With the excitement mounting we finally reached our destination- Petersburg Outdoor Adventure Centre. After we had unpacked our bags we headed down for lunch and a briefing. Afterwards we divided into activity groups.  Some went Kayaking, others went Gorge Walking, Abseiling, Hill Walking and Caving. Each activity lasted for two hours. After our amazing first activity we all ran back to take our wetsuits off and to jump into a nice warm shower. Each day different groups would set up for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  In the evenings after dinner we would have a different activity such as Orienteering in the dark, Environmental Art, Egg Drop and a Walk in the Woods at night blindfolded. After each activity in the day students would be treated to Hot Ribena and Biscuits. it was the highlight of the year so far.

Senior Camogie

A BIG congratulations to our senior camogie team who beat Flannans,Ennis in the first round of the Munster Championship! The girls brought home a win with a score line of 4-8 to 3-9. There were some brilliant scores from our full forward and half forward lines, with great ball distributed from the backs and midfielders. They showed great teamwork as they hunted in packs and threw in some great hooks and blocks. We would also like to praise our co-captains, the dynamic duo that is, Sinead Madden and Sinead McNamara. Well done to all!

Junior Camogie

Our junior camogie team began their county championship campaign with a hard-fought victory over St John the Baptist School of Hospital. The match was played on a cold, wet and blustery day and was a battle from start to finish but our girls managed to come out on top with an impressive score-line of 5-6 to 1-1. A big well done to the team, especially to the first years who made their debut in the wine jersey! The girls are now into the next round of the county championship with the Munster Championship set to begin at the end of October.
