Library News

Our Library was reopened in 2012.  

It has been extensively remodelled and is now a quiet haven where students can experience the joy of reading. We have a large range of books to choose from as well as magazines and newspapers. New soft furnishing has been installed and it is now a very enjoyable space in the school.

It is open every lunchtime except Wednesday.

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.
