Thanks to Ms Tynan for sending in photos of her first year sculptures.
They had to make a clay sculpture based around what was inside their head and the results were very impressive.
These two are a sample of their great work. Well done to Ms Tynan and 1D.

The second years who study Spanish had a talk by the Education Adviser from the Spanish Embassy in Ireland. He talked about different aspects of Spanish culture such as food, literature, history as well as discussing some facts about the Spanish economy. At the end of the talk the students had a quiz in groups to test their understanding.
The talk was greatly enjoyed by students. Here is a picture of the proud winners with their diplomas. ¡Enhorabuena chicos!

Yesterday Aaron Cullen 3F and Craig Giles 4G represented our school at the All-Ireland Cross-Country Championship in Mallusk Co. Antrim. Unfortunately Maximilian Kelly 1F couldn’t compete in his race due to a conflicting important soccer match – there is always next year!
Aaron and Craig were both competing in the same race the Inter Boys 5,200m. With a large amount of rain that morning and the previous days the course was very heavy underfoot with many athletes losing their footwear! They raced against 127 competitors and both finished with pride after a very long and tough hilly race – Aaron finished 45th and Craig finished 57th. The running club and school are very proud of both boys and their achievements in this sport, they are an inspiration to the younger athletes in our club! We look forward to the track and field season – training has already started!
Congratulations to Christopher McFadden who has been informed by the German Embassy that his exceptional performance in his JC German has qualified him for a Scholarship to study in Germany. Christopher finished in the top 25 in Ireland. Congratulations also of course to his teacher, Ms Gaffney.
