The mock examination schedules for both Leaving and Junior Certificate classes begin on Thursday February 1 and the timetable for these exams can be seen as follows:
On November 25th some of our students and their parents travelled down to the University of Limerick to participate in the Irish indoor rowing championships provincial competition. There was in total 13 students from First years to Transition Years taking part in various events both in singles and in teams of four. At the end of the competition the CBS rowers won several medals Gold Silver and Bronze and several rowers achieved personal bests, no mean feat considering that the rowing only began in the school two years ago!
The boys were needless to say thrilled and are currently in preparation of the National Championships at the same venue in January 2018.
Well done to the boys and goo luck in the New Year!
The rowers were:
Daniel McCauley, Brendan Devereux, Adam Roche, Levente Rosza and Odhran Rame(1st Yr), Justin Gossell (2nd Year)
Barry Cunnea (3rd Year) Joshua Martin, Richard O'Neill, Cathal O'Rourke (TY)
Our Drop Everything and Read initiative will continue this week. Please have a book in your bag to read on Tuesday
As part of Transition Year Gaisce programme, Declan Cullen studied coding. He decided to put his new skills into practice by creating a TY website to display his work. He has done a great job showing the range of work he and his fellow students do during their Transition Year. Well done Declan.
Beginning next week students of Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate years will be taking their Mock Examinations in the school. The following is the timetable for both Examinations and the various times for each.
Commiserations to our under17 soccer team who played in the Leinster under 17 final last week in Arklow. Despite the driving rain and terrible conditions for both teams an exciting game was witnessed by teachers, supporters and players between St Marys CBS and Presentation College Bray in Arklow FC soccer grounds. Both teams were evenly matched in the first half. St Marys played with the wind and came close on a couple of occasions to opening the scoring but both sides went in at half time 0-0. In the second half St Marys were under pressure but gave as good as they got and indeed struck the crossbar midway through. However our luck turned when the ball went into the net off a defender from a corner and despite valiant efforts to tie the game up it was not to be. Presentation Bray held on for the final whistle to emerge as winner 1-0.
Well done to our boys for the effort both on the day and throughout the campaign. The team was composed of Second Years, Third Years, TY's and some Fifth years.
Some of our students participated in the Irish indoor rowing championships which were held in the University of Limerick on January 21st last. The students who took part were from first, second and third years and the events that they took part in were individual 500m and 2000m as well as team relay events. The boys had been training twice a week since October under the supervision of Anne Shore and the event itself was attended by Garry and Paul O'Donovan the silver medallists at the Rio Olympics.
So well done to the boys involved and to their trainer and continued success to them into the future.
