Thank you to our 3rd & 6th Year students
The above year groups have now finished their November assessments. The results of these assessments will be published to parents on Tuesday December 8th. It is important to commend both year groups on their excellent behaviour in the exam hall throughout their exams. The manners and respect that they showed towards their supervising teachers was outstanding. While of course the students know that we have high expectations for them in relation to their behaviour and rules/protocols of exams are explicitly communicated to students prior to all examinations, it is hugely important to praise and acknowledge that excellent behaviour and compliance with school rules. The boys are a credit to you their parents, to their Year Heads, Ms. Ni Fhlatharta (3rd year) and Mr Kelly (6th year) who invest so much time and effort into the boys, and of course their tutors and teachers. Well done!! As always, we are very proud of the boys and of the respect that they so willingly show on a daily basis for everyone here in the College. Thank you.

The Christmas Shoebox Appeal is an annual campaign where thousands of individuals in Ireland donate shoeboxes filled with gifts to be given to children affected by poverty in Africa or Eastern Europe. It is an opportunity to share a little joy and excitement with children who live in circumstances where these can sometimes be in short supply. You can read their stories at www.TeamHope.ie
This year, due to the effects of Covid-19 restrictions, the Christmas Shoebox Appeal has gone online.
Every €20 donated will allow Team Hope’s partners in Africa and Eastern Europe to purchase items for shoeboxes locally, which will then be packaged and delivered directly into the hands of children.
You can drop donations into the school office or send an envelope in with your son for their class tutor.
To make a virtual box of your own with your child, you can visit www.TeamHope.ie at any time and choose the items you would like to add. You can also upload your colouring page with your donation to personalise your shoebox!
Thank you so much for helping us to support this appeal, please find attached an information flyer on the above appeal.
