Fr Collander and his crew of horticulturists prepare the soil in the new polytunnel for the planting and sowing.
As Easter approaches we are again reminded of the swift passage of the school year; returning on April 8th we will begin the final term which is indeed just that for those 6th years who no doubt will wonder where the years have gone as they look back on their time here in Good Counsel. Not that they are finished with us yet! There is plenty still to be done and in that final term they will have oral exams as well as assessment in some project work.
Congratulations to Oisin Murphy and Jason Shiely who were highly commended for their entries to the recent National newspapers writing competition. Oisin’s piece was an examination of the wages paid to premiership footballers while Jason focused on the Irish dairy industry. Well done to both and their teachers.
A number of students took part in the Trocaire 24 hour fast last week in raising funds for that charity organisation. Well done to them for taking such initiative and making sacrifice for others.
We must thank Mr Hugh Byrne for coming in to address the 5th and TY students on the issue of organ donation recently. His presentation was very well received and his insight into the issue was most interesting.
