What a wonderful morning of colour and fun we had last week as we completed our second annual Colour Run in aid of local Youth and Family service provider, Insync. Organised by our Wellbeing Committee, this uplifting event involved students and teachers walking, running and laughing their way around the track soaking up the many rainbow of colours being flung at them! Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun and helped raise money for a fantastic cause, making a difference in our community.

We were delighted to welcome Issac (Golden Retriever), Kinder (Lab Retriever) and their minders Antoinette and David from Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind to HFSS on Monday. In what has become an annual visit, the students learned all about the invaluable work of Irish Guide Dogs for The Blind during Tutor Time and Isaac and Kinder spent the morning walking through the school, visiting classrooms and delighted students on their way. We raised 125 euro for IGDB and the school is now sponsoring a puppy. What a wonderful way to start the week!

First Year Basketball

The First Year basketballers competed in the All Ireland Playoffs today against three other regional champions in Carrickmacros, Monaghan.  We won the first game with a bit to spare against Colaiste na Coiribe, Galway.  The second game was very close for the first half, against Alexandra College, Dublin. But scoring 10 points in a handful of minutes in the third quarter meant we went into a third, winner takes all game against the hosts, Inver College, Carrickmacross.  This was the slowest start of the day, facing into half time 13 points adrift of the hosts.  However, HFSS dug into their reserves, and slowly crept back, and with two minutes of time remaining levelled the game.  This was an epic comeback that took a huge amount of energy, that alas, we ran out of, and the hosts crept ahead to win by 3.  The team can be tremendously proud of their progress, getting so close to the All Ireland semi final, that will surely be the benchmark for next year.  Well done girls!
