Soccer and Rugby October 2012

Soccer and Rugby

It has been a busy few weeks for both the boys’ and girls’ teams with matches for both.  The girls fared better with a convincing win against Bunclody Vocational College while the boys were unlucky against Wexford Vocational College having led for most of the game.

In rugby, the girls took part in of blitz at the home ground Towns Cup Champions, Enniscorthy.  This was a historic occasion and was a great thrill for the girls who narrowly lost in the final.  They returned proudly with medals – the first ever for rugby in our school.

The school took part in the nationwide Trocaire fundraiser recently.  Students and teachers presented a mini concert with music, dance and spoken word.  The concert was Irish music themed and it was a fun occasion with a surprising array of talent on display.

Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying is of great concern at present.  This can occur when using social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Bebo etc.  It can also occur in the form of abusive text messages. Parents are fearful that their sons/daughters are vulnerable in the social media environment.

Simple steps that both students and parents can take to protect themselves include

1. Strengthen your privacy settings

2. Never reveal contact details

3. Print out any abusive comments

4. Report to a responsible adult

Drop Everything And Read

Drop Everything And Read is an interesting initiative to encourage everyone in our school community to read.  Every morning, for ten minutes, students and teachers will each read a book or magazine chosen from a box of reading resources.

It's that simple.  

The boxes are brought around to each class for the first ten minutes of the day. and everyone chooses something to read.  This campaign will last for six weeks with constant refreshment of the reading material.

According to Oscar Wilde "It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it"
