Sixth Year Art & Geography Trip

Sixth Year Art and Geography students combined work with pleasure recently when they went on two respective outings, necessitated by the demands of their subject syllabi.

The Geography students are compelled to do a field study and it counts for a significant percentage of marks in the Leaving Cert Examination. This year the students made the trip to Co Clare to complete their shoreline field study and also visited the Ailwee Caves. All that remains now is the writing up of the study and the findings.

The Sixth Year Art class had in the words of the Art Teacher “the best exhibition ever” when they visited the “Dublin Contemporary ‘11” Exhibition in Earlsfort Terrace, the national Gallery and the Douglas Hyde Gallery. It was an immensely enriching and interactive experience for all.

Gaelic Football & Camogie

The Gaelic Football Junior team have already played two matches, winning one and losing one. The defeat came in the first match against Loreto Clonmel and the victory was at the expense of St John the Baptist S.S. in Hospital, winning quite comfortably by 6-13 to 5-5.

The Camogie team is not having the same start to the season suffering two heavy defeats against Loughrea and Cashel Commnity School.

Hockey – Challenge Matches

In preparation for the start of the league season, the Senior A and Senior B hockey teams travelled to Kilkenny to challenge Kilkenny College. In two very competitive games, the Senior A team emerged as winners by 1 – 0 and the Senior B lost by a similar score-line.

Crazy For You

Production rehearsals are now underway for this year’s show when all will be in readiness for opening night on October 22. The show will run over four nights – Saturday, October 22, Sunday October 23, Tuesday October 25 and Thursday October 27.
