Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal Success!

Each year the school takes part in the Hope Christmas Shoebox appeal to help bring some hope to less fortunate children at this time of year. This year, due to the effects of Covid-19 restrictions, the Christmas Shoebox Appeal has gone online. Every twenty euro donated will allow Team Hope’s partners in Africa and Eastern Europe to purchase items for shoeboxes locally, which will then be packaged and delivered directly into the hands of children.
This year, our school has raised a fantastic €1010 in aid of the Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal. This will allow the charity to deliver in excess of 50 gift filled boxes to children in need this Christmas.
Team Hope has asked that their thanks and appreciation be extended to all of our students, parents, staff and teachers.

On Saturday, 28th November our equestrian club ran its very own competition in Butterfly Farm. With thirteen members jumping on the day there was great excitement and friendly rivalry. The feeling of getting out to show jump, in a safe environment, was very much to the fore. A special thank you is due to Ms Rothwell and Ms Cummins for organizing the event. Thank you to Michael Byrne provides training and who judged on the day. Sincere thanks to our parents also who are always supportive. Our main sponsor on the day was Kate's Tack Shop, Bunclody. Thank you to Kate.
The novice competition involved fifteen rounds of jumping. The course was clearly built for a twisty and speedy jump off. Hughie Doyle certainly showed he was a speed merchant when he finished on 0 faults in a time of 30.32 seconds, taking 1st place. Saoirse Kenny finished in 2nd place on 0 faults and 34.78 seconds. Third place went to Stephen Sharry who also had two flawless rounds and stopped the clock on 39.61 seconds. 4th, 5th and 6th places went respectively to Katie Nolan, Rachel Darcy and Sarah Sheppard.
The open competition provided excellent show jumping also. Hugh O’Loughlin’s time of 33.00 seconds and 0 faults could not be surpassed. Saoirse Kenny gave an excellent account of herself finishing in 2nd place stopping the clock on 34.92 seconds. 3rd place went to Katie Nolan whose time was 36.63 seconds. Lynsey Kilbride took the 4th place rosette. While 5th place went to Rachel Darcy and 6th to Cait Kenny.
The talent and equestrian skill in our club bodes well for the future and hopefully we will get back to having the usual inter-schools competitions sooner rather than later.

RayseTheGame with Ray Langan spoke with our 3rd and 5th years this week. Doing the seminar through Zoom didn’t remotely take from the zealous, enthusiastic approach of Ray. Both students and teachers found the seminar to be proactive, ambitious and inspiring. Even in these tiring times, Ray has given our students the impetus to control their learning and well being and most importantly to raise their game!
A million thanks Ray!
