Fáilte & Welcome
Céad Míle Fáilte to all our readers, whether parent, student, teacher, past student or someone interested to find out about our fine College.
We were delighted to welcome back Emma Gaffney to our school mass. Having achieved two H1’s in Physics and Biology, she is this year’s worthy winner of the prestigious Anne Kernan award. This award is given to the student with the two best science subjects who goes on to study a science subject at third level and Emma has started her studies in Trinity College Dublin studying Human Health and Disease.
We wish Emma all the best in her studies and she has already volunteered to return to talk to our science students in the future. Emma is pictured below with her mother Ms. Mairéad Gaffney and Dr. Olive Laffoy (Principal).
Well done to the minor camogie girls who have made it to the Dublin finals. They will play St. Mary's College from Nás na Ríogh in Good Counsel GAA on Friday 19th May at midday. Beir bua!
Transition Year students from 4.2 enjoyed the great experience of witnessing the Credentials ceremony at Áras An Uachtaráin on Thursday, April 28th. New Ambassadors from Mozambique, El Salvador and Nepal handed in their Credentials to President Higgins. Each student got to greet President Higgins and enjoyed a small reception with refreshments after a tour of the Aras. Emma Wakeham made it extra special by performing a piece of music on the grand Piano in the reception room.

As you may be aware, our school has been allocated an additional deputy principal post from this academic school year and we are delighted that we will benefit from this important leadership and management resource.
As part of the selection process we would like to consult with you, the parents of our students, at this time and offer you the opportunity of completing the attached form (Parents’ Consultation for Appointment of Deputy Principal).
Ms. Laffoy distributed a hard copy of this form to all those who attended last Monday’s Parents’ Association meeting. The deadline for return of the form is on Monday 13th and these forms can be emailed, posted or handed into the office.
We value your contribution to this positive new development for our school.
