Well done to Aaron Cullen who was representing PCS in Waterford this weekend at the National Cross Country Finals. Aaron had a fantastic race. The course was extremely wet and mucky therefore very heavy underfoot. He placed 10th overall and just lost 9th place with 100m to the finish line. He is now 2nd on the reserve list to represent Ireland at the Cross-Country Internationals as the top 8 qualify. We are extremely proud of his hard work and his dedication to training. Thanks to Ms Malone and Ms McDonald for their mentoring.
On the 25th of January 2018, class 3H went on a trip to Fingal County Council in Swords as a part of our CSPE action project which is on local government. We went with our CSPE teacher Mr. McGovern. The action project is worth 60% of our CSPE Junior Cert grade.
At the end of this trip we felt like we understood more about about local government and that Fingal had taken on our ideas to improve the beaches.
