Student Council

Student Council

On Tuesday, 9th of January, our Student Council travelled to Cork city to visit the offices of Cork City Council on the invitation of Cork’s Lord Mayor, Cllr. Kieran McCarthy. A huge welcome met our students as Lord Mayor McCarthy, himself a Geographer and Local Historian gave the students a tour of the Council Chamber and Lord Mayor’s office. He impressed on our council the importance of representation in public office, shared his extensive knowledge of local governance and city planning and sought to encourage our diligent Student Council on the importance of their continued commitment to their school community and therefore their hometown of Listowel.
The visit served as a reminder to our Student Council of the role that their council may play in their own development as young leaders in their school and community. Many thanks to the Lord Mayor Cllr. Kieran McCarthy and his team in Cork City Council for making our students feel so welcome and encouraging them in their endeavours.

Badminton Success

Badminton Success

A massive congratulations to our badminton teams who had a very successful outing in the Kerry Schools Badminton competition in Killarney this week. Our u14 team of Triona Prendeville, Irene Carol, Kayla Galvin and Sinead Leahy completed a grand slam, winning every single game they played on the day. Our u16 team of Kate Nolan, Sinead Kelly, Sara Carol and Emilie Browne were also outstanding and did another grand slam, defeating Tarbert Comprehensive and St Brigid’s Killarney and Presentation Milltown in the final. Our u19 team of Cara Leahy, Lucy Prendegast, Molly Linnane and Catherine Cahill punched above their weight in defeating Causeway Comprehensive in their opening game, and were unlucky to lose out to a strong Presentation Tralee side in their second game. These results qualified them for the 3rd place play off, where they narrowly lost out to Gaelcolaiste Tra Li. Our u14 and u16 teams now progress to the Munster competition which will take place in January.
