Our 1st Year Students enjoyed their visit to Nano Nagle place in Cork city last week. They learned about Nano Nagle’s life, how she worked tirelessly to educate the poor of the city and about the powerful impact she had on education in Ireland and worldwide. An insightful and inspiring trip. Nano Nagle Place has been awarded the prestigious Council of Europe Museum Prize for 2021. It continues to provide support and care for people in need.
Our u16 basketball team had their second win of their basketball league against Killarney CC today. This was a close game all the way through and was a game where our girls always held the lead from start to finish. It went right down to the final few seconds where we held on for a win by the narrowest of margins, 26-25. Well done to everyone involved!
Today we as a school marked the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty, 100 years on from it’s official signing on December 6th 1921. To mark such a momentous occasion in Irish History and the founding of the Irish Free State Emma Heaphy (2B) and Maggie Mahony (2B) raised the Irish Flag outside the school. We also had a lovely announcement made to the entire school by Kaelynn Murphy (3B) as well as the singing of Amhrán na bhFiann by Grace Whelan (3A) and Sophie Stack (2B) accompanied by Caireann Uljee (2B) on guitar. Well done to all students who participated.
Our Junior Football team were out yesterday in the second round of the Munster Competition playing Colaiste na Sceilge in Killorglin. The girls got the game off to a great start with a number of quick points in the first few minutes. We had a few goal chances early on that were well saved but we soon found the back of the net with us going into half time 3 goals up. We would hold this lead for the remainder of the game to finish with a score of Presentation, Listowel 5-16 Colaiste na Sceilge 3-5. Well done to all our players, it was a real team effort with everyone giving it their all!
