On the 31st of May, transition year students presented a cheque to Marcella Gemmell, our local volunteer with Make-A-Wish, with a total of €1099.06 for the charity. This money was raised by transition years who collectively completed 1500km and sold ice creams vouchers. Thanks to all who donated and supported our fundraiser and a special thanks to Londis and Mr. Duignan who helped with the ice cream vouchers. 


Congratulations to Mya Grogan, who was awarded Transition Year Student of the Year for 2021. In a challenging year Mya's enthusiasm and positivity motivated students to make the most of the TY experience. 


The newly built outdoor amphitheatre held the Awards ceremony for this year's Leaving Cert students. While the cermony was much reduced due to the Covid regulations, it was still good to honour our Students for their work over what has proven to be two very difficult years for them. The two main awards were Collegian of the Year and Student of the Year. These were awarded to Paul Coyne (Collegian of the Year) and Emma Maye (Student of the Year). Congratulations to them both and to all our Leaving Cert class of 2021. We wish them well in their exams and on into their future lives.

Well done to the transition years students who organised a fundraiser for Pieta House. During the week leading up to the annual Darkness into Light walk all students during their PE and Games classes participated in a walk raising €790 for this great cause.
