Anyone still unconvinced of the hazards of smoking would do well to see the Transition Year YSI display on the subject which provides graphic detail of the harmful effects of the habit. Drawing on a number of subject areas including Art, Biology, English and I.T., the display is both colourful and informative and a great credit to the group and their teacher Ms Langton.

Rehearsals are in full swing for the joint schools’ production of ‘The Hot Mikado’ which goes on stage for 4 nights, March 21st to 24th. Tickets will be on sale soon and as the school musical is always a sell out it is advisable to book tickets early to avoid disappointment.

3 groups of lucky 2nd years got the opportunity to canoe on the Barrow last week courtesy of Sheilbaggin Outdoor Activities Centre. All those who took part over the 3 days thoroughly enjoyed and thanks to Mr Teague for organising the event.

The U-14 Hurlers got their campaign off to a winning start beating the Dublin Schools side by the narrowest of margins on Monday last. They now play St Kierans College on Wednesday in what should be a wonderful challenge for the boys. Best of luck to them.

Commiserations to Patrick Boland,1st year who made it to the Leinster handball semi final only to lose out to a very accomplished opponent. An outstanding handballer, Patrick will have many more successes in the future.

The showjumping team of Ethan Cahill, Daniel Holden, Stefan Kirwan and Jim Redmond continued their winning ways on Sunday last with another win, their 6th, in the Hoofprints League. They are now 8points clear at the top of the National table and hopefully can maintain their advantage over the last few events.
