The girls junior football team suffered a narrow defeat in their Leinster semi final today v Presentation SC Kilkenny. The away side were physically stronger side meaning our girls had to play quick smart football to work their way around them. This tactic worked well in the opening ten minutes as we created many scoring chances. Unfortunately we could not make this pressure count on the scoreboard. Worse still followed as the away side grew into the game and they certainly had their radar switched on as they notched 2-2 with their first four attacks of the game. The Carnew girl's became despondent as they knew they had dominated much of the play but had found themselves well behind coming up to half time as further scores from the Kilkenny side opened up a 12 point gap. Half time brought a chance to refocus and regroup. The girls knew they had it in them to mount a comeback and they set about this with fierce determination from the start of the 2nd half. some hard work and pressing high up the field pushed the Kilkenny side back into their own half time and time again and as our shooting improved the gap in the scoreline reduced. Even when the away side broke out for a goal our girls went at them again to reduce the gap to just 2 points with minutes remaining. A well worked move in the final minute saw a fine shot from distance by Laci Jane Shannon rebound off the crossbar in heartbreaking fashion. The Kilkenny girls managed to clear the ball and hold onto possession high up the pitch as the full time whistle blew. Final score: Colaiste Bhride Carnew 3-9 Presentation Kilkenny 4-8 This was a super effort by the home team and many of the squad have a Leinster camogie final and senior football semi final to look forward to. We wish them well.

Each year new stars are born at our TY drama evening and last night was no different. What a wealth of talent went on stage!

On Friday 24th of January our Development Education Committee celebrated UN World Education Day. To mark the occasion, Ciarán, Sophie and Adam visited Scoil Aodán Naofa, where they delivered a workshop to pass on their learning. The workshop asked the enthusiastic primary school students to examine the causes and consequences of food insecurity in poverty stricken areas of Africa. Later in the day, the committee welcomed Ms Noeleen Doyle, who delivered an engaging workshop, in which the committee learned more about Sustainable Development Goal 4- Education. As a result of the committees fundraising efforts during the week, we were able to present a cheque of 110 euros to Ms Noeleen Doyle to help Concern continue their excellent work.

On Monday, 27th January our first and second year girls' basketball teams travelled to Coláiste Bride, Enniscorthy for their second round group games. The first year game was very evenly matched and after a very slow quarter Carnew found themselves down by 10 points. However, after two enlightening minutes and great shooting from Julie Rawson, Carnew led 12-10. The game followed the pattern of each team matching one another score for score. However, Carnew found themselves on the losing side by 4 points. The second year game followed a very different pattern with the second year girls keeping that winning momentum they had last year going and they won on a scoreline of 36-6. Both girls' teams and boys' teams will travel to Creagh College on Friday, 31st January, for their next round of games.

TY students from one of our Young Social Innovators (YSI) classes would like to thank everyone for their support of their event at lunch today. The group, lead by Brid Doyle, ran a number of activities which aimed to highlight that men can suffer from breast cancer too. The aim was to use some lighthearted games to start a conversation about this condition which a lot of people don’t even know exists. A special thanks to Mr Douglas for allowing students use his picture for their ‘pin the nipple on the breast’ activity. Students got their faces painted and also took part in a survey and were then treated to some lovely buns baked by the students. This is the first of a number of events planned as the group continue on their YSI journey.

Japan Quiz Night is the event where Transition Year students from different schools put their Japan-related knowledge to test. They compete in teams of 3/4 across 4 venues -Clare, Cork, Dublin and Gorey- simultaneously. Gorey Community School was the host for the southeast region. Coláiste Bhríde, Carnew was represented by two teams, “Watashi Wa Your Worst Nightmare Desu” and “The Sumo Blossoms”. Both teams acquitted themselves very well with “Watashi Wa Your Worst Nightmare Desu” scoring 22 points and “The Sumo Blossoms” scoring 29 points, which was enough for them to secure victory at the Gorey centre. Unfortunately, this just fell short by one point from the overall winner “Team Weeaboos“ of Presentation Brothers from the Cork centre. This is the best result ever by a Coláiste Bhríde team in this competition, and is testament to the hard work put in by the students. The Coláiste Bhríde teams consisted of Naomh Moules Aoife Mulligan Aoife Linehan Isabella Ni Chonaill Izabella Lowe Caoimhe Byrne Aoibhe Lancaster Caitlin Hughes Great achievement, well done girls! Omedetō gozaimasu! Much thanks to Aoi Deegan who facilitates our hugely popular TY Japanese module!
