Le Cheile Trip
Our 5th year Le Chéile students enjoyed an excellent two day trip to Castlegregory as part of a team building exercise with staff members Ms. Carr & Ms. Hickey. Among the fun activities undertaken were hiking and surfing on the nearby renowned Rossbeigh beach. Students thoroughly enjoyed this wellbeing initiative and deemed it a great way bond as leaders in our Le Chéile programme.
The first competitive outing this year for our u16.5 hurling team transpired to be a most enjoyable one as we defeated Gaelcholáiste Luimní on a score line of 6-15 to 0-14 points in the 1st round of the Munster Cup. The opening half was a tentative affair with both sides playing cautiously until two quick goals by Stephen Maher & Jack Kennedy put daylight between the teams that subsequently saw Coláiste Mhuire play with more aplomb and fluency. Scorers on the day were Eoin Craddock (2-09), Jack Kennedy (3-03), Stephen Maher (1-00), Gavin Ryan (0-02), Joe Cornally (0-01). We wish the team all the best in their next outing against Tralee CBS.
European Languages Day
Some decadent aromas emanated from the French Department as our 1st year students enjoyed freshly cooked croissants as part of European Languages Day in Coláiste Mhuire. This annual event was thoroughly enjoyed by all where French Culture was experienced for a day that concluded with a French film ‘Les Choristes’.
2nd & 3rd year History students went to a special viewing of the brilliantly produced film Black ‘47 at Thurles Cinema last week. Feedback was extremely positive from students (and teachers!) as the film vividly portrayed the turbulent times & brutal judiciary that prevailed in Ireland during The Great Famine.
BT Young Scientist:
It’s that time of the year again when the budding scientists of the future are eagerly getting ready for the BT Young Scientist competition. Many groups of students from a variety of year groups are busy putting the final touches to their projects. Following on from previous years’ successes, we here here at Coláiste Mhuire Co-Ed are looking forward to continued success in the area of Science and STEM again this year.
