Well done to the first year football team, who made it to the final of the first year blitz in Ballincollig yesterday. They played very well as a team to make it to the final and were unlucky not to win it. They will be playing in the munster football blitz next Tuesday.
Congratulations to Rachel Coomey, 6th year student, who won best in the Senior Category at the National Finals in Maynooth at the weekend in the area of Computational Thinking.
Computational thinking involves using a set of problem-solving skills and techniques that software engineers use to write programs and apps
Bebras is an international initiative aiming to promote Informatics (Computer Science, or Computing) and computational thinking among school students at all ages.
Rachel certainly has a bright future ahead of her and we are extremely proud of her on this wonderful achievement.

Congratulations to our 1st, 2nd year and TY students who took part in CIT Sci Fest this year and spent the last few months working on various scientific projects. The girls all went to CIT today to present their projects and had some very interesting results. Thanks also to their teachers Ms D. Quilter, Ms M O’Hare and Ms. M Winiarz who worked hard with the students.
A huge congrats to Saoirse Noonan, 5th year student, who was awarded Under 17 International Women’s Player of the Year by the FAI on Sunday night. This is a huge achievement and we are so proud of Saoirse. Saoirse is a capable and committed student and is a wonderful role model for the Junior students. She plays with the school senior soccer team and is admired by her teammates and coaches for her dedication, committment and abilities. Well done Saoirse.
Today is La Gaeilge and all the Leaving Cert students are busy working on their oral Irish in preparation for the Oral exams next week. We would like to wish all of our students the best of luck in the coming weeks with their oral exams.
Please encourage all students to “caint as gaeilge” as much as possible throughout the week and teachers too!
Last week, a number of initiatives took place in the school with a view to immersing the students in French Culture and language.
On Monday 6th March, a language theatre company presented a show in French for our Transition Year students. The students really enjoyed the show which was full of action, songs and comedy!
Six students took part in the show. They played the roles of detectives who were investigating the mysterious disappearance of Madame Robert’s dogs from L’Hôtel Nobert. Our student actors were Roisin Spillane, Rachel Compagno, Emily Shannon, Savani Kodilkar, Karen Yamedjeu and Anna Nunan. Well done girls!
On Tuesday 7th March, the entire 5th Year French group went to see a French Film for French Film Festival
On Friday 10th March, we had Leaving Cert French/German Oral Day whereby students concentrated on French and German language for the entire day and had practice orals during the day.
Well done to all the teachers involved in organising these wonderful events.
Mental Health March is beginning in the school today
