Monthly Roundup – December

Junior Cycle Results
In late November our current TY pupils were presented with their Junior Cycle exam results. Congratulations to each and every one of them on achieving this important milestone in their educational journey.

Sports Update
The school was a hive of sporting activity during November and December. The Minor girls’ hockey team won their 1 st game 2-0 against Mercy Convent, Navan. The senior and junior badminton players enjoyed their away match v Wilson’s Hospital School (pictured). The U14 boys’ rugby team had a hard-fought win over Headfort School in November while the U16 boys’ rugby team beat Monaghan Collegiate 17-10 in December. Our U17 & U19 boys’ soccer teams had positive results against Largy College, Colaiste Oireall and Monaghan Collegiate. Well done to all participants and thanks to all the coaches who give of their time for matches and training.

Individual achievements
Well done to Megan Griffith Keane, Elizabeth Emma-Adebayo and Tierna Smyth on their wonderful performances in the Cavan Town Hall pantomime production of ‘Cinderella’ just before Christmas. Congratulations to our TY student, Luke Allison, who was selected to represent Ulster in the FAI Interprovincial Tournament in Dublin during December. Luke is the first student we have had at RSC to represent Ulster at this level of football – a great achievement.

Christmas Fundraising
As usual Christmastime in RSC was very busy and this year the students made a special effort to raise funds for the Barretstown camp. Over €2000 was raised. There were Christmas Jumper days, Christmas Door decoration competitions and world cup sweepstakes all in aid of this wonderful charity.

TY Activities
During December TY pupils enjoyed trying their hand at Pitch & Putt, undertook a forensics workshop, engaged with the TY Architects in Schools programme and also entertained some of the residents in a local nursing home for a ‘Forget me not’ Christmas party.

Craft Fairs
TY and 1st year mini companies attended several craft fairs and sales over the Christmas period. They enjoyed meeting customers, making sales and getting feedback on their products. In particular they enjoyed organising the annual RSC Christmas craft fair which was held in the school before the holidays. Thanks to all who supported their endeavours.

Mock exams
We wish all of our 3rd year and 6th Year Pupils well as they undertake their pre-examinations next term.
