Coláiste Abbáins 1st and 2nd year basketball teams began their season on Thursday. Both teams travelled to Ramsgrange to play the hosts and also Enniscorthy VEC. First game on court was against Enniscorthy VEC. As expected with the first game of the season the boys started slowly but were showing glimpses of the basketball we will expect to see later in the year. Throughout the game the team kept a lead which they never looked like losing. In the end the recorded an 18 – 13 win.

Our 1st years were now on court against Ramsgrange. We have had a consistent number of 24 students training with this team every week, which made team selection very difficult as the squads are limited to 12 players. With high expectations for the upcoming season the team did not disappoint. With some excellent offensive and defensive displays the team ran out 20 – 0 winners.

Finally our 2nd years were back on court v Ramsgrange in the final game of the day. This was a completely different team as they played a high tempo game from the throw in. taking a commanding 10 -2 lead after the first quarter no one would have seen what was to happen next. Half way through the second quarter a significant part of the floor bubbled up. This meant that due to health and safety the game had to be called there and then. Due to Colaiste Abbain leading 14 -2 we were given the game.

Overall an extremely successful first day of the season winning 3 from 3 which sets us up well for the remainder of the season.

Punctuality to School

Coláiste Abbáin endeavours to cultivate positive, beneficial and respectful practices among its student body – practices and qualities that will enhance employability and make a significant contribution to successful and meaningful participation in society. Punctuality is one of these.

Lack of punctuality is unacceptable and disrespectful behaviour. In the school context it interrupts the instructional rhythm of the teacher and concentration of students. This degree of time wastage is highly significant to the teacher, the class grouping and the late student. Responding to serious and persistent late-coming consumes large amounts of valuable administrative time and effort.

Our Students Council have discussed this issue and have agreed on an appropriate sanction for lateness

On the day a student is late they will be required to attend detention during reflection filling in a penalty sheet for lateness. One written note from a parent /guardian per term will be accepted for genuine lateness.

This will commence on 14th January 2019. School starts at 8.52 with breakfast available from 8.10 onwards.  Class Reps and Prefects will communicate this to the student body.
