A poetry competition entitled Poetry Aloud took place at Coláiste Mhuire to promote poetry among second level students. The standard of poetry written was deemed exceptional by the panel of judges at the event and among the schools in attendance at the prizegiving ceremony along with Coláiste Mhuire Co-Ed Thurles were Rockwell College, Presentation School Ballingarry and Coláiste Chiarán Croom.
The u15 soccer team recorded a superb and convincing triumph over Waterford opposition Gairmscoil Dún Garbhán at Casltemeadows to qualify for the next stage of the Munster Cup. Among those who played excellently for Coláiste Mhuire were Callum Brookeborough, Danny Slattery, Brandon Mills, Tom Reilly & Ronan Carroll who both finished with hat-tricks!
Our u16.5 hurling team made the journey to Ballybeacon GAA grounds last Tuesday where they played Comeragh College in the quarter final of the Munster Cup. With a lot at stake both sides delivered a committed performance but a stronger Coláiste Mhuire side picked off their scores with more accuracy to record a comprehensive victory and set up a Munster semi final date with Limerick opposition Scoil Pól from Kilfinane.
BT YOUNG SCIENTIST:
Well done to second year student Jack Kennedy whose application for this years BT Young Scientist was successful and will now head to the RDS later in the year to exhibit his project that is based on mental health. Well done also to his mentors from The Science Department Ms. Smith & Ms. Hayes and to Ms. Ryan for their guidance.
Congratulations to the cast of Bring It On that delivered an excellent performance in The Dome last Wednesday & Thursday. Huge crowds of all ages in attendance thoroughly enjoyed this production that had seen many weeks of rehearsing culminate in an enthralling evening. Huge thanks to all involved and in particular to Ms. Wallace, Ms. Martin and Ms. Geaney for their dedication, time and expertise in seeing Coláiste Mhuires 2017 school musical become a resounding success.
