Best for Coláiste Mhuire were Jack Kennedy, Daniel Donnelly, Eoin Craddock, Charlie Yates, Gavin Ryan and Aaron Hickey.
Biology Practicals Days
Our 6th year Biology students attended The Leaving Cert Biology Practicals Day in the University of Limerick on Friday 13th January. The practical session featured 18 Leaving Cert Biology practicals and it was an excellent revision opportunity for our students, as they were afforded the chance to undertake the practical experiments using the state-of-the art facilities in the Biology laboratories. It also gave the students an insight into life as a university student, creating an added impetus to strive and attain their full potential!
