TY Students took part in the IWA TY Wheelchair Basketball Regional Competition in IT Sligo Monday. A great experience for all, with one team making the final, which will be held in April.
First Year students were very productive last Friday, making St Brigid’s Crosses, expertly guided by 5th Year mentors.
Mr Kane facilitated a third year table tennis competition over the past few weeks. Well done to winner, Eoin Connaughton and runner-up Fergal Flynn.
Thank you to PietaHouse who delivered the ‘Resilience Academy’ programme with our 2nd yrs. The extremely valuable programme equips students with emotional resilience tools for the future.
Well done to Eoghan Shanley, Niall O’Shea and Niall Gallagher, who each received a gold medal in the John Paul II awards last week.
Please note that “Lifting the Silence on Suicide”, a community event organised by the HSE in conjunction with community groups is taking place in Sean O’Heslins GAA Club next Monday 9th December.
Massive congratulations to first year student, Francis Flynn, who won the Unsung Hero award at the 2019 leitrim Sports Star Awards which took place in Lough Rynn Castle Saturday 23rd November.

As part of the Green School initiative, the student council recently unveiled a new water font. This initiative aims to cut down on single use plastics in the school as students are encouraged to refill their reusable bottles at the new font.
Over the last month, members of the student council attended the Comhairle na nÓg AGM and organised a fancy dress event at Halloween. We had an Odd Sock Day in aid of North West STOP, while TYs were away for a trek up Croagh Patrick and also engaged in Eucharistic Ministry training.
Mr McCaffrey presented €11,695 to Pieta house today on behalf of the committee, student council and wider community. Massive thanks again to all our volunteers and supporters who made our event in May such a huge success.
