We greatly appreciate the great legacy that both leave behind and wish them health and happiness in their retirement.

Wellbeing

Encouraged by our recent CPD day on wellbeing in Junior Cycle, the staff and students look forward to the continued implementation of wellbeing into all aspects of our school life. The mission of JCT Wellbeing is to promote wellbeing, a sense of satisfaction and happiness. It is an inclusive approach couched in the indicators of Wellbeing: active, aware, connected, resilient, responsible and respected. Staff have committed to ensure that through learning in wellbeing, students develop the knowledge, understanding, skills, capabilities, and attributes that they need for human flourishing. There is a recognition that a sense of wellbeing and connectedness is vital to academic, social, emotional and physical wellness and resilience of young people. The staff at Colaiste Mhuire want students to experience opportunities which are designed not only to raise their awareness of future choices, but also raise their expectations and aspirations. Wellbeing will be a game changer in our Education System. We are excited for positive change, whilst understanding wellbeing is a Whole School Project and a Community Endeavour is needed!

Coláiste Mhuire Win Leinster Senior Hurling Title!

Friday, February 26th, 2016

Congratulations to the players and management involved in today’s historic victory over St Mary’s C.B.S. Enniscorthy (Wexford).  The prize was the Leinster Post-Primary Schools Senior Hurling “B” Rest of Leinster shield and the game was played in MW Hire Park, Dunmore with referee Anthony Stapleton (Laois).

The C.B.S. started the brighter and led 0.03:0.02 after 10 minutes but the Johnstown lads settled mid-way through the half and were deserving of their 0.05:0.03 half time lead.

The St Mary’s boys again started the second half brighter and levelled matters at 0.05 a piece after 5 minutes.  However, they were to be held scoreless for the remainder of the game while Coláiste Mhuire kept the score board ticking over at regular intervals.  The result of which saw Coláiste Mhuire finish worthy winners on a 0.09:0.05 scoreline.

Afterwards, former Kilkenny hurler and Johnstown native Pat Henderson presented captain David Doheny (Harps GAA, Laois) with the Leinster Post-Primary Schools Senior Hurling “B” Rest of Leinster shield.

The management and players would like to thank everyone from the school community and neighbouring clubs who have supported them to date. They now go on to contest the All-Leinster final versus Ard Scoil Rís (Dublin 8) on Monday, 7th March at a venue to be decided.   Continued and increased support of our team would be greatly appreciated.
