On Friday last we were delighted to celebrate past pupils Roisin Byrne, Elaine Keogh and Ciara Price, recent All Ireland Intermediate Champions. These inspirational girls are members of the Kildare Ladies football team who won the LGFA National League Div 3 title and TG4 intermediate championship this year. This was a wonderful opportunity for our whole school community to come together to celebrate and recognise these wonderful women on their achievements. Roisin spoke to all assembled and highlighted the importance of having an outlet such as football, dance or any activity outside of school as a way to unwind from school life. We would like to wish Roisin Byrne the best of luck as she has been nominated for an All Star award on 18th November and we wish the girls the very best of luck as they move into the Senior Championship next year.

The 1st years had their RE reflection day on Wednesday. They took time out of the typical school day to pause and reflect. They went to Mass, designed flowers with things they are grateful for, meditated with the guidance of Sr.Kate, learned the story of our founder Pierre Bienvenu Noailles and walked to the grotto. The HFY students also spent the day with them. A most enjoyable morning for everyone involved.
