Having given up on the forecast ‘Indian Summer’, 6th Year Geography students braved the elements on Friday to complete their Geographical Investigation in Tramore. Accompanied by their teachers Ms O’Neill and Mr Moran, the group had to endure a day of heavy rainfall as they carried out the various aspects of their field study. Hopefully it will ultimately prove well worthwhile. Transition Year students were, meanwhile, taking part in a car safety training day, a valuable exercise for all young drivers and all those who will soon be doing so. They have also had a guest speaker from the Rape Crisis Centre address them during the week in addition to getting started on YSI projects
On Tuesday evening next a group of Australian students will visit us for a 24 hour stay, incorporating a Compromise Rules game against a TY selection who have been practising diligently in preparation for the challenge. We hope they will have a very pleasant stay with us in what is the final leg of their tour of Ireland. In a busy week in sport, the U-16 hurlers travelled to Dublin to take on Colaiste Eoin in the Leinster Championship returning victorious on a 2-14 to 1-14 scoreline. They next play Kilkenny CBS in what will undoubtedly be a difficult assignment. The 1st year footballers had their first opportunity to showcase their talent in a friendly against Knockbeg College on Wednesday while Clonmel High School brought up U-14 and U-16 teams to play friendlies in the college grounds on Thursday.
Congratulations to the U-19 and U-17 doubles pairs, Pat Mulhearn/Robert Malone and John Walsh/Dale Flynn respectively, who qualified on Friday for the Leinster 60×30 Handball semi finals where they will face opponents from St Kierans College.
Finally, on Friday last we said goodbye to Bro Colm who has worked in the school as a chaplain over the past year; we wish him all the best in his new role in Dublin and please God, we will see him back in Good Counsel on many future occassions.
