Our Junior Basketball Teams are on a roll!

We are extremely proud of our first and second year boys on their amazing win against Colaiste Dun Na Rí on the 22nd of January.. Playing here at home, we watched the first years steam ahead with a fantastic, 20 - 11 win. Following that, the staff and students were treated to a hard-fought match for our second years, who put in a tremendous fight to bring home a 23 - 22 win. This is our first win for each team so we congratulate them on their brilliant success and look forward to the next match. Man of the match: Pawel Skalinski

Match: Coláiste Chú Chulainn VS Dundalk Grammar School

We are thrilled to announce our second win in a row for our first and second year boys against Dundalk Grammar School on Monday afternoon. The first years started us off with an outstanding 20 - 15 win. The second years pushed full throttle to bring home a 24 - 16 win. Most importantly we have to congratulate the boys on their true sportsmanship and maturity as they held their heads high, helped out where needed and thanked the other team for having us. We are so proud to have these students represent Coláiste Chú Chulainn.

TY celebrate Chinese New Year

On Wednesday, our wonderful Transition Year class hosted an event to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Their focus during this event was on the sharing of knowledge about the customs and culture of China. Each group had a stall which was focused on a particular aspect of China. The students at these stalls shared their knowledge with visiting students. On Thursday, TY students were treated to a visit from UCD Confucius Institute and took part in TaiChi and Chinese Folk Music workshops. Both events were thoroughly enjoyed by all and we wish everyone a Happy Chinese New Year.

Leo and Connel visit Google HQ for Webwise Training

Connel Rogan Duffy and Leo Meenan from 4 Tesla went to Google HQ on Wednesday 15th January for their training with Webwise as Safer Internet Day Ambassadors of the school.  During the day they heard from previous ambassadors and their experiences, they shared ideas with other Ambassadors in training from across the country and learnt about some strategies on how to be safe users of the internet.  They hope to share these strategies and more with their peers in the school when celebrating Safer Internet Day on the 11th February.  We look forward to see what type of day have planned for us.
