During the final 2 weeks of September, 1st year students attended a tour of Newbridge library with their English teacher and classmates.
The students visited the library in the morning, where they were shown around the library’s facilities by the library staff.
The students were given the opportunity to join the library free of charge and to use their cards to borrow books, CDs, magazines and DVDs if they so wished.
Everybody was delighted with the selection of books held by Newbridge library as well as surprised that they could use the spaces provided in the library for quiet study or homework.
Students can also access the internet on the library’s computers to research school projects or assignments, with their parent’s permission (also free of charge).
The tour was organised by the Home School Community Liason, Mrs. Maxwell, and this opportunity will be invaluable to the student’s independent learning, in particular to their English studies for the new Junior Cycle.
The Basketball season has begun again at St. Conleths. Training has been underway and matches are now being played.
Mr. Quille and the under 16 boys played their first match this week. It was a friendly match at home to Tullamore College. It was a great start to what they hope will be an even better year.
The under 16 girls coached by Ms. O'Connell also made their first competitive start to the season. They played away to Athy College. It was a well played match and although they fought it out to the end, the victory did not go their way. The girls play Mountmellick Community School on Monday the 11th. Best of luck for a good game.
Sports Day for all classes took place on Friday the 12th of September. Student participated in field events of long jump, high jump, javelin and Athletics. In the gym students were able to show off their basketball skills. Golf skills, Rugby skills and Soccer were also to be enjoyed.
