Outstanding Results:Congratulations to the Leaving Cert Class 2013; the results were excellent and a testament to the hard work and terrific attendance all year. The Junior Certificate Class 2013 received results this week and they too excelled, well done to all the girls.

School Musical: Auditions are in their final stages and students are eager to get started on this year’s exciting musical. Jesus Christ Superstar has been chosen for this year. Good luck to all those auditioning.

Transition Year: Students have been bonding as a group over the last few weeks. Their day trip to University of Limerick Outdoor Activity Centre in Killaloe was particularly successful as they girls got the opportunity to try lots of daring activities while getting to know each other. No doubt it was only the first of many new learning experiences for this group.

First Year Sports Day: Luckily the sun shone as the whole First Year group participated in Sports Day. The girls had a great day playing games, working in teams and meeting students from other class groups.

Mission Day: Sixth Years have been very busy organising Mission Day 2013 in aid of Ursuline missions in Kenya. This year they have decided on a Disney theme for Monday.
