Edel Daly SciFest.jpgPresentation Student reaches the National SciFest Final

Edel Daly (5th Year) has reached the National SciFest Competition Final for her project on ‘Sports Performance Grip’. Edel has developed a sports grip that specifically moulds to the player’s hand. Her project was evaluated by the judges this week via a Zoom interview. Her project will be available for virtual public viewing from the 16th to the 27th November. Members of the public can register on the SciFest Eventbrite page and vote for Edel’s project. Further details will be available closer to the date on our school website and our social media platforms. We wish Edel and her teacher, Ms Moloney, all the best!

Irish Debating

This year three of our students (pictured here: Kathleen Doyle, Mary Ellen Moloney and Edel Daly) have entered the ‘Comórtas Óráide an Phiarsaigh’ debating competition, which is an event organised by Gael Linn. The competition will run a little differently this year due to Covid-19 restrictions. Instead of travelling to a venue and engaging in a traditional debate, the girls will be required to record a four minute video of themselves speaking about a specific topic. Every Monday after school, the girls meet to research their topics and practise their debating skills in preparation for the competition. Many thanks to their mentor, Mr Hallissey for his support.

Junior Debating Club

Our 1st Year Debating Club meets every Monday after school to discuss and argue various important topics, some of which include: animal cruelty, civil rights, education, technology and politics. The girls learn how to research, write, and present their opinions on various topics, in order to build their confidence as public speakers and to be more informed on the world around them. Although they are only just after taking the first steps into debating, all of the girls have shown plenty of potential. Club members are: Orla Whitehead, Sarah Broderick, Cara Delaney, Aisling Kirwin, Sarah Dempsey, Emily Gleeson-Kelly, Ella Henley, Aoife Marshall and Amelia Tracey. New members are always welcome. Thanks to Ms Moroney for co-ordinating this for the girls.


The school’s numeracy committee has ensured a numeracy-rich environment around our school with visual displays on noticeboards and on classroom doors. Some ongoing initiatives include 'Puzzle of the Week', 'Word of the Week' and 'Numeracy in…..’ different subjects on a rotational basis (currently Science). Numeracy week is due to commence the week beginning Dec 9th 2020. Many thanks to the hard working committee.
