On Saturday, Feb. 12th, the assessment morning for all incoming 1st years – Sept. 2011- takes place. The boys will gather in the church initially prior to 10am and will proceed to the Sports hall where the assessment will take place. A snack will be provided for all the boys during the course of the morning.

The Junior Cert. mock exams started on Thursday and continue until next Friday. The Leaving Cert. equivalent starts on Monday and also continues for the full week. Good luck to all the students sitting those.
The Transition Year students have been busy with their YSI projects, a particular highlight being the CD recording featuring Michael O’Gorman on vocals, while they have also been engaged in film making during the week.

A mass was held in the college church on sunday last for the families and friends of those bereaved by suicide. Thanks in particular to Fr. Collander for organising this event which was much appreciated by those in attendance.
