Thanks to all those who supported the Parents’Council Table Quiz on Thursday night and especially to the members of the parents’council who put so much work into the evening. Quizmaster, John Fanning, maths teacher in the school, had a very broad range of questions prepared and the whole event was concucted very professionally.
Thanks also to the many sponsors who donated prizes fro the raffle.

The Senior Rugby team from the college had a clearcut 15 – 0 win over Sandford Park in their opening game in the Leinster Senior Cup on Wednesday last. Well done to the boys involved, to coaches Mr McGinley and Ms Langton. Next up are the formidable opponents of Newpark Comprehensive.

Conor Duggan and Killian Dunphy reached the Leinster Final of the 1st year 60 x 40 handball where they eventually lost out to a very strong pair from Callan CBS. Getting to the Leinster Final was a great achievement and thanks are extended to their parents for their support and help.

Jack Allen returned to school this week having been in St Petersburg, Russia representing Ireland in the World Youth Gymnastics Championships. Although outside the medals, Jack consolidated his place in the top ranks of world performers in the tumbling discipline.

A reminder to all past pupils to check out the Facebook page for the alumni of the college. In little over a week there are already over 250 ‘fans ‘signed’ on.  Hopefully it will provide a network for old classmates and friends to renew acquaintances.
