School News May 16th 2013

Girls Active
Ms. McCarville took the girls active group to Zipit, which involves high wire activities in Lough Key on Thursday last.

First Year Trip
Fifty First Years went on a school trip to Bay Watersports near Athlone for a day of water based activities. They were accompanied by their year head, Mr. Nolan and Ms. Nertney.

First Year Boys Football
The boys were defeated in the first game of the Connacht League against Glenamaddy. From the word go the energy, enthusiasm and will to win was missing in this game, probably because Mohill had beaten Glenamaddy previously in the Connacht Championship. Nevertheless they game a good enough account of themselves scoring 5-5 to Glenamaddy’s 6-9. Mr. Nolan is in charge of this team.

Lion King.
The Autism class visited the Bord Gais Theatre to see the renowned musical – all were suitably impressed. They were accompanied by Ms. Murphy, Ms. Cunningham and Ms. Conway.

Leaving Cert Mass.
Thanks is due to all the students, parents and teachers, who together with Fr. Murphy and Fr. Burke, ensured this was a beautiful ceremony. The theme was ‘Carpe diem’ -seize the day. The choir and soloists, the ceremony of light, introduction, readings and presentation of gifts made for a very meaningful celebration of the student’s time in the college and promoted positive engagement in their further studies and life ahead.

Fundraising.
A number of Fifth Year students collected downtown for “Special Olympics – thanks to all who supported. Last weekend was a ‘no homework’ weekend that served as a fundraiser to send a student, as a helper, with the Diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes.

Leaving Cert and First Year students have had their class photographs taken recently. Copies will be available shortly from the school – enquire at the office.
