The Trinity Walton Club is calling for applicants. We have had students attend this club and it has been of great benefit to them.
The club programme runs for 30 weeks during the academic year. Sessions are three hours each Saturday.
All students interested in joining the club must complete the online application form and sit an entrance assessment at Trinity College Dublin on Saturday 16th of September.
All at PCS wish past pupil Maria Coughlan the best of luck as she represents Dublin in this year’s Rose of Tralee.
Congratulations to our Young Social Innovators Ahmed, Ravi, Luke and Colin who came first in the Sage World Cup 2017 in Odessa. Their project was developed from their online mapping of Lesotho and focuses on apps to assist the emergency services. This is a massive achievement for the team and is a result of very hard work and support from their mentors Ms Cronin and Mr Fitzgerald.

Well done to Karl Lynch Bissett, Darragh O’Boyle, Sean Hawkshaw & Gavin Nangle who were part of Dublin’s Leinster Championship winning team.
Huge congratulations to Aaron Cullen and Craig Giles who both competed in the All-Ireland’s Track and Field Championships in Tullamore. Craig started the day’s competition with a fast 800m, he stayed with the top group and held his own placing 2nd with a time of 1min 57secs! Aaron was up next in the U16 mile and it was an amazing tight tactical race that came down to a photo finish with Aaron winning the race and placing 1st. Craig was up again to race in the 1500m, with tired legs and tough competition Craig had a phenomenal race with less than 300m to go he made his move passing out 3 athletes to finish in 2nd place!
Both boys have represented the school with distinction and the athletics club and school are very proud of them! Their hard work at training and commitment to athletics have shown them to be great role models for the younger members of the club.
Wishing ALL the members of the athletics club a great and active summer.
