Castlesaunderson Scouting Centre
First Year students and their Maths teachers travelled to Belturbet for a day of activities – in the morning they engaged in activities relating to Project Maths – mapping, using trundle wheels and calculating speeds. The afternoon involved orienteering, archery and survival skills. Ms. Tiernan, Ms. Muldowney and Ms. McGovern accompanied the students.
Fifth Year student, Lisa Moran departs later in the month as a volunteer with the dioscesan pilgrimage to Lourdes. Lisa has got financial support from the community through bag packing. Lisa wishes to thank the retailer, contributors and bag packers for their help. We wish Lisa good luck on her trip.
Transition Year Debates.
Ms. Reynolds has promoted “Thursday debates” between TY students who debated in front of first and second year students. A winner was declared at the end and feedback was given. Among the topics debated were – “The internet brings more harm than good”, “Junk food should be banned from schools”,” Fracking should be banned in Leitrim”, “Homework is very educational”,” Animals should not be kept in captivity.” “Lyrics that glorify violent and criminal lifestyles should be banned”. These are just a flavour of the range of topics for debate. Well done to all concerned.
A spelling contest between first year classes created great excitement and no little learning. Ms. Reynolds assisted by Ms. Callinan promoted this endeavour.
We sympathise with Yvonne & Sharon Reynolds and their family on the death of their grandmother – Mrs. Mai Maguire.
We extend our sympathy to Dáire McKiernan and his family on the death of his grand aunt – Mrs. Pauline Donoghue. May they rest in peace. Reply Forward
Green Schools Ireland.
An Taisce has awarded the Green Schools International Green Flag to Mohill Community College recently. The Flag will be presented by An Taisce on 27th May, 2014 at the McWilliam Park Hotel, Claremorris. Transition years completed an energy awareness programme throughout the whole school, conserving energy consumption in the school. This involved questionnaires, surveys, task work, research and implementation of methods of conservation. They were mentored by Ms. Maxwell.
Leaving Cert Mass 2014.
The Mass is in the parish Church on Monday, May 12th at 3.00 p.m. We invite parents, guardians and siblings to this celebration – refreshments in the school afterwards.
The Health Promoting Schools Project
The Health Promoting Schools Project has been running in Mohill for a number of years. Over the past number of years our school has promoted the topics of: Healthy Eating, Physical Health, Mental/Emotional Health, Environmental Health awareness, Respect and values, Healthy body, healthy mind. This year the Committee decided that instead of coming up with a new theme we would focus more on what we had achieved over the last few years and find a way to bring all our learning together. The members felt that it was essential for today’s young people to have hope and to experience a happy, fulfilled and positive educational experience while attending Mohill Community College. With this in mind they decided to look at ways that we can all make a difference in our own lives and in the lives of others. A lot of discussion followed and they came up with the theme ‘Making a Difference’. Activities carried out throughout the year included a survey of students on their needs, school calendar, and topics discussed included anxiety, mental health, anti-bullying, LGBT, nutrition, physical activity. On April 29th some members of the Health Promoting Schools committee travelled to Sligo IT for the Health Promoting Schools awards day. This event took place in order to recognise the achievements of the schools who participated in the scheme and to recognise the amount of work and quality of work that schools have put into the project. Present at the event were Maire McCallion, (Lecturer, Health Promotion programme, Sligo IT ), Lisa O Hagan, National coordinator healthy schools, Mike Rainsford (Suicide Prevention Officer HSE), Ann Lawlor and Teresa Cawley (Health Promotion HSE).
Ms. Yorke brought a number of students to Sligo to compete in the Regionals and a number have qualified for the next meet.
The Transition Year Group returned from their trip to Spain enriched by their experiences. They visited Tarragona, got a guided tour of the Camp Nou Stadium and visited a Science Museum. They then had a hair raising day at the PortAventura Theme Amusement Park. By all accounts they had a very enjoyable break.; Ms. Kellegher, Ms. McCarville and Mr. Kehir travelled with the group.
Transition Year Activities.
They are spending some time at Lough Allen for the Gaisce Awards and looking forward to a driving school and a First Aid/CPR course in the weeks ahead.
First and Second Year girls involved travelled to Drumshanbo for a day of activities, where they met up with participating students from other schools.
We sympathise with Kerri Daniels, Second Year, on the death of her great grandmother. We extend our sympathy to Keith Keegan on the death of his grandfather – Mr. Tom Cusack. and to Ms. Dolan on the death of her grandmother – Mrs. Rose Hughes. May they rest in peace
