Day one is done and dusted. For those who weren’t there here’s a quick chronological recap. Our first years were welcomed this morning by the staff of St Munchin’s. Their first day was a short one kicking off at 9am in the Assembly Hall with full time in the same venue four hours later. Principal and Deputy Principal, Mr. Quilter and Mr. O’Donoghue, introduced themselves and spoke of the traditions of St Munchin’s and the expectations but also the opportunities and possibilities that were now within the grasp of these young men. Chaplain Ms. O’Sullivan-Glynn then gave a reflection which spoke of the promise that awaits the boys in the years ahead. Year Heads Ms. Bourke and Mr. Kelly then explained their pastoral role ably supported by tutors Ms. Coone, Mr. O’Brien, Ms. Fay and Mr. Murnane and the entire staff of the school.
Our 109 new lads then marched off to their tutor rooms where they went through the key parts of the Journal, the school rules, the time table and general introduction to secondary school. Then it was a whistle stop tour of the campus, a stop off in Mr. Nelligan’s room to collect their sports gear and an orderly queue for Ms. Keehan to get their locker key.
