Confirmation is on May 10th at 3pm. The next preparation Mass for the Sacramental classes is March 21st at 7.30pm.

Green Flag:   The Green School Committee is working towards our next Green Flag which relates to travel. We had a visit from the Green School Officer of Cavan Co Council out with us this week. Well done to Sophie Yore on her Green Code Slogan of “If you live too far, share the car.  If you live too near, get your feet in gear” which won our competition last week.

Debating:   Well done to the Senior Room who, under the guidance of Ms. Quinn, won their debate against Finnea N.S. They have now qualified for the County Final which will take place in a couple of weeks. Well done to all concerned.

Handball:   Our Handball Squad had a great day at the recent County Championships in Kingscourt. Liam Raymond just missed out in a tiebreak in his match. Daniel Putnam came 2nd having reached the final. Daíthí Yore won the Junior Championship and Luke Madden and Charlie McCormack won the Senior Double Championship. Daíthí, Luke and Charlie all go on to the Ulster Championship this week in Belfast. Thank you to Brendan for accompanying them.

Our junior team of Kate Lennon, Oscar Monaghan, Harry Reilly and Alana Gogarty finished second in their contest, just one point off first. Our senior team of Niall Gogarty, Mark Lennon, Oisín Monaghan and Daniel Morris came fourth, also missing out on second and third by just one point. Many thanks to Gillian who prepared the teams.
