Sixth Year Graduation Mass
The class of 2015 attended their graduation mass last Thursday night in the James O Donoghue Sports Hall. Celebrated by school chaplain, Fr. Tomas O Connell, the mass was an enjoyable celebration of an important milestone in the students’ lives as they prepare to say a nostalgic farewell to their school days. We would like to wish all the sixth year students the very best of luck with their upcoming exams and wish them all the best for the future.
On Monday last our transition year students travelled to Tramore, where they participated in surfing lessons and team-building exercises at the Freedom Surf School. A very enjoyable day was had by all.
Harty Cup Civic Reception
On Thursday last the Thurles-Templemore Municipal Council honoured this year’s successful Harty Cup panel with a civic reception which was held in the school’s sports hall. This event was a generous acknowledgement of the panel’s wonderful achievements this year.
On Friday, the eight of May, our Rice Cup panel enjoyed a comfortable victory over Charleville C.B.S. in the semi-final of the competition. Consequently, they will now take on Nenagh C.B.S. in the final this Wednesday, the thirteenth. The game will be played in Templederry and throw-in is at 4 pm. We wish them the very best of luck.
Students from our 4T and 4Y transition year classes assisted in the refereeing and organising of a primary school hurling blitz that took place in Dr. Morris Park on Wednesday last.
Track and Field
Thurles C.B.S. had another successful day on the track and field circuit last Saturday when six of our athletes who qualified for the Munster Schools Championships travelled to C.I.T. Sports Grounds. The boys competed in ten events between them and came away with eight golds and two silvers. In the Intermediate Boys category Daniel Ryan won gold in his two events: the long jump and the 100m hurdles. In the Junior Boys category Sean Mockler had a very successful day, winning gold medals in the hammer and the discus. David Ryan won gold in the long jump and silver in the 200m. Kieran Moloney ran a great 800m, winning gold, while Liam MacDonagh of first year came first in the 1,200m walk. In the Minor Boys category Jack Ryan won gold in the shot putt and silver in the long jump. Each of the boys has qualified for the GloHealth All Ireland Schools Track and Field competition which will take place in Tullamore on May 30th. We wish them continued success.
First Year Information Night
There will be an information evening for incoming first year students and their parents on Tuesday, the 26th of May at 7.30pm. This event will afford parents and incoming pupils the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the school and with each other.
