Last week our fifth year and sixth year music classes, along with the school’s choral group, attended a talk by Mr. Martin Barrett, entitled ‘Reaching the higher notes in life’. The lecture concentrated on career opportunities for music students and highlighted the fact that there were more options available to students than the most obvious performing and teaching ones. Other avenues of employment include marketing, commerce and music production. The talk certainly opened the students’ eyes to the career possibilities that exist for students of music.
Team Hope Shoebox Collection
‘Well done’ to transition year pupils; David Mawe, Ben Murphy and Eanna Ryan on coordinating the collection of Christmas Shoeboxes from first and second year students and on raising money for sustainable projects run by Team Hope. Hopefully, their hard work will bring a little bit of festive joy to some of those in the Developing World who are less fortunate then ourselves.
Personal Safety Course
Last week our transition year students participated in a personal safety course which was delivered by Personal Safety Ireland. The course focused on awareness, boundaries, consent and self-defence techniques. The pupils really enjoyed this practical and thought-provoking workshop.
The current season came to a disappointing end for our under-19 basketball panel last Thursday when they were narrowly defeated by Marist College, Athlone in the semi-final of the Midlands League. The team performed admirably and lost out by a single basket, the final score being 57-54.
Our under-19 soccer panel took on Colaiste Mhuire Co-Ed in a useful challenge match on Monday, the 21st of November. Goals from Jack Hackett and Matthew McKevitt helped the C.B.S. to a 2-1 victory. This game should stand them in good stead as they prepare for the knockout stages of the Munster Senior Cup.
