Soccer Champs

The Girls took part in 5 a-side tournament in Cahir Park on Friday February 17th. They played very well throughout the day, improving with every game. Having played Newcastle, Gaelscoil Carrick and Ardfinnan in the group stages they qualified for latter stages of the competition and beat a very good Cahir side in the semi-final. They then played Burncourt in the final game on their way to victory.

Congratulations to the girls it is nothing more than they deserved, ending the week on a high after narrowly losing out to Clerihan in the debating competition.

Debating Update

Unfortunately, the debating team narrowly lost out to Clerihan last Tuesday 14th February, and so their journey ends. As a group they worked very hard preparing their arguments and gave it their best effort.
