Boys Basketball.
First and second years played St. Nathys in home games. The First Years performed really well and won their match on a scoreline:

Mohill CC – 71
St. Nathy’s – 18

The second year boys found the going tougher and lost by a margin of five points

Religious Education Trip.
Second Year students visited a mosque in Clonskeagh and Greek Orthodox Church in Arbour Hill Dublin as part of their Junior Cert RE Project. Students were given a guided tour and in each case it ended with a question and answer session. Ms. Colum and Ms. Hanly accompanied the students.

Mental Health Awareness.
Senior students will participate in workshops facilitated by Aware and Mental Health Ireland this week. They will also take part in a study skills programme.
Third years will engage with the Samaratins and a study skills workshop

Junk Kouture
Transition Years have progressed to the Western Regional finals in this competition where they design and fabricate costumes from used materials. One groups entry is themed “The Knight” and the other “Miss Universe”. The final is in the Theatre Royal in Castlebar in March 20th. Marks are allocated by online voiting, which is possible between February 25th and March 1st. Ms. Treanor is supporting the work.

Film Competition
The Transition Years are also busy with a Bank of Ireland sponsored short film, promoting Mohill for the gathering. They have most of the project complete with assistance from David Wrynn of Diamonid Water Productions.
