Christmas News Wrap Up
The School was beautifully decorated before Christmas and each class got into the spirit with the ‘Deck the Hall’ competition where they had to decorate their classroom door in an imaginative, festive fashion. As promised, the winning entry is pictured here.
Well done to all pupils on their fantastic fundraising efforts prior to Christmas. The Christmas card sales and Shave or Dye challenge raised €2,000 for the Donal Walsh #Live Life campaign and the Christmas jumper day raised over €1,000 for the Children’s Health Foundation. Also, the pupils were thrilled to be able to revive the annual tradition of Carol singing in the town in aid of Concern. This year they raised €781.
We were delighted to have competitive football matches back before Christmas. The Senior boys’ team had a comfortable win in the Ulster cup quarter final against Monaghan Collegiate before ending up on the wrong side of a 3-2 score line against Colaiste Ailigh from Letterkenny in the semi final. The U17 team were unlucky to lose their first game 3-2 against PCC Falcarragh. The U15 team had two challenge games before Christmas. They lost narrowly 3-2 to St. Clare’s College, Ballyjamesduff and then won comfortably against Monaghan Collegiate. At the time of writing, they are preparing for their Ulster quarter final. The U16 girls’ team had their first outing against Monaghan Collegiate also, losing 3-1 on the day.
Well done to our U16 boys’ rugby team who won their challenge game against Monaghan Collegiate. Sincere thanks to Co. Cavan Rugby club who have again partnered with us to help with the coaching and allow the use of their facilities. At the time of writing the team are preparing for their Ulster Cup draw and matches.
Rugby Blitz Win
A massive well done to all 35 RSC girls who took part in the tag rugby blitz in December. A huge thank you to Cavan Ladies Rugby Club for doing such an incredible job of both organising and running the event that had over 100 girls participating, it was a fantastic experience and event. Everyone enjoyed the lovely catering after the matches and one of our teams even managed to take the Cup home!!
Congratulations to all the Form 3 & 4 pupils who were confirmed by the Bishop in Cavan Parish Church on Sunday 16th January.
Other Extra Curricular Activities
We hope that our Hockey fixtures will resume in the coming weeks and we are also looking forward to athletics starting back up. Some indoor activities such as Badminton, Table Tennis, Chess, Christian Union & Choir are still difficult to plan for due to the pandemic.
Formula 1 in Schools
F1 in Schools is the fastest, most exciting STEM competition for secondary school students. Students learn how to design, race and build their very own miniature Formula 1 car. This year’s RSC Team is called ‘Eersta’ and is comprised of Nicole Cassidy, Zarah Peeters and Shayna McCaffrey. Best of luck Girls!
