The fair will include demonstrations in cookery, make-up, hair up-styles, and woodturning. Free kids Face painting and craft activities along with a surprise visitor will entertain the little ones. These activities as well as many more stalls and stands are sure to make it a very enjoyable and entertaining afternoon.

Retirement

Congrats to Principal Michael Killeen and teacher Patsy Costello who recently retired from Coláiste Mhuire. Both were hugely respected by all of the school community for their many years’ service and this was evident at their recent retirement celebration attended by family, friends and past and present colleagues.

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!

U14 Football

Our U14 footballers got their season off to a winning start with a 6:05 to 4:03 victory over Abbey community College. Well done to all players on a hard fought victory.

Junior Camogie

Well done to our junior camogie team who got their year off to a winning start with a 4-7 to 1-3 win over St Brigid’s College Callan. This builds on the magnificent Leinster win last year.

Girls Basketball

Basketball in Coláiste Mhuire continues to go from strength to strength. The girls have been undefeated in their campaign to date proving triumphant against Pobailscoil Kilkenny, Grennan of Thomastown and Ballinakill. With a coaching team made up of five staff and on expert coach Joe Byrne the future is looking positive.

U16 Hurling

Our u16 hurlers have made great progress since u14. They were narrowly beaten in our first two games despite great individual performances from Eoin Delaney, Billy McEvoy and Jack Hickey. A victory in the next game will see this hardworking group of players progress to the next stage.

Senior Hurling

Preparation is well underway for our 1st game in the competition against Mountrath which is fast approaching. Thanks to Our Lady’s Templemore and CBS Kilkenny for two hard contested challenge matches. Training has been going well and our team is shaping up nicely.
