TRIP TO PARIS:
Our 1st and 2nd year students returned last week from a most memorable, enjoyable and educational trip to Paris. Excitement leading up to the departure of this trip was palpable among students and accompanying staff as they undertook this sojourn to Europe’s most visited and spectacular capital. Feedback was positive as students recounted the various and wide-ranging sights visited such as The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, L’ arc De Triomphe, Les Champs Elysées, Eurodisney, Stade de France, Montmartre and of course, the ‘formidable’ Shopping centres! ‘Tout le monde se bien amusé!’
Congratulations is extended to Business teacher Ms. Miriam Bergin and her 1st year students who entered the County Final stages of The Student Enterprise Competition in L.I.T. Thurles recently.The Special Merit Award in their category was won by Katelyn Ryan, Katelyn O’Gorman, Chloe Hall, and Andrea Butler with their business ‘Recycled Creations’. Well done also to our other students who participated, Gary Delaney and Joey O’Donoghue who made mini-hurleys, while Oskar Lipinski and Aaron Cooke made Polish donuts and popcorn. Well done to all our students who ran a successful business and created business plans, all of which are a fundamental part of the Junior Certificate Business course.
SEACHTAIN NA GAEILGE:
D’éirigh go hiontach ar fad leis an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn i gColáiste Mhuire Comh-Oideachais le linn Seachtain na Gaeilge le coicís anuas. Eagraíodh raon mór leathan imeachtaí agus bhain ‘chuile dhuine an-taitneamh astu go léir m.sh. seisiún ceoil, tráth na gceist, agus ceardlann ar an mbodhrán leSeán Geaney as An tAonach Urmhumhan. Bhí Gaeilge le cloisint i measc daltaí agus múinteoirí mórthimpeall an Choláiste! Seachtain na Gaeilge proved a resounding success recently on campus as an array of activities were undertaken, as both students and teachers rowed in positively and vibrantly inpromoting The Irish Language and Irish culture at Coláiste Mhuire.
Best of luck to our under-14 footballers as they prepare for the annual County blitz that takes this week in Fethard. Our panel are determined to emulate the success of last year’s team and retain the Cup that they won in an exciting and memorable final played at Dr.Morris Park. Training has been going well and optimism is high with players in our ranks such as Brian O’Halloran, Bill Hogan, Éamon Ryan, Aaron Cooke, and Gary Delaney. Go néirí leo!
