Leaving Certs 2010

Congratulations to the Leaving Cert students of 2010 on their wonderful results and who are now embarking on the next stage of their education and heading off in all directions. They had an opportunity recently to meet up as a class, probably for the last time, at their Graduation Ball. All were looking beautiful as they arrived at the school for a presentation of certificates and they danced the night away in the Anner Hotel to the music of Bluemoose.

The Return

It is not quite as exciting for the new Sixth Years and the other classes who returned by degrees last week. The Sixth Year students have already settled well back to work but the newly formed Charities Committee was quick to get into action. They capitalised on Tipperary All Ireland fever and quickly organised a Tipperary T-Shirt day for the victims of the Pakistan floods. Students were very happy to pay a small fine for the privilege of wearing their Tipperary jerseys on Friday last and there was even some tolerance for those who live “over the border” in Kilkenny and some black and amber jerseys were tolerated. They were however well outnumbered and the temptation to charge them more was resisted!

School Council

The Sixth Year members of the new School Council who were elected last May were also swift into action and organised themselves as “Big Sisses” to the new First Years. They also elected the officers for the year. Anna Brennan was elected as Chairperson and she is ably assisted by Mairead Barry and Michelle Bourke as Vice-Chairpersons.

The members of the Council from the other year groups will be elected in the coming week and they will commence work immediately.

School Show

The choice for this year’s school show is the ever popular Sound of Music. The show will be staged from October 16 and it will be all systems go with auditions and practices in the coming weeks.

It is like summer has never been and the cycle begins again!
