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.

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.

Coláiste Mhuire Hosts Winning Streak Dream Maker

Friday, October 1st, 2010

On Saturday September 25th Coláiste Mhuire hosted the National Lottery’s  Winning Streak programme Dream Maker segment, where a lucky contestant got to Spin The Wheel!

  

Cathriona Beirne is pictured above receiving her cheque from Eleanor Murphy, National Lottery. Cathriona was cheered on by members of Coláiste Mhuire Community Sports as well as Geri Maye (RTE Host), Kevin Murphy (Chairperson of CM Community Sports), JJ Delaney (Kilkenny Hurler) & Mary Hilda Cavanagh (Chairperson of Board of Management at Coláiste Mhuire Johnstown).      

The winning streak TV segment is an opportunity to showcase National Lottery funded projects throughout the country, and this week it was the turn of CM Sports, a joint initiative between Coláiste Mhuire and the local community, which provides state of the art sports facilities for students and local sports clubs alike.

Students, staff and the local community came out in force to cheer on contestant Catriona Beirne, from Knockcroghery in Co. Roscommon, who spun the wheel to win €12,500.

Also in attendance were Councillor Mary Hilda Cavanagh, Board of Management; Mr Rodger Curran, C.E.O. and representatives of the Parents Association. CM Sports were represented by committee members Brendan O’Gorman, Coláiste Mhuire Principal John Cahill and Kevin Murphy.

 

While the cameras rolled, the school looked resplendent in the autumn sunshine, as young people from the surrounding areas enjoyed a range of activities including  hockey, tennis, hurling and basketball.

 

Meanwhile inside the school gym, preparations were underway for the recording of the interviews and the all–important spin.  Under the watchful eye of the RTE crew, the charming Geri Maye put everyone at their ease as she spoke to Kevin Murphy of CM Sports about the project and the benefits to the local community. While admitting to having a limited experience of hurling, she nevertheless recognised the achievements of past pupil JJ Delaney, to whom she handed a KitKat bar with the comment that Kilkenny were only “taking a break” from winning all-Irelands this year!

 

“The focus of the visit is to highlight the benefit which lottery funding has brought, and the way in which Coláiste Mhuire works within the local community to provide facilities which we can all be proud of and which can be used by all,” commented Mr John Cahill. Seeing the footage on the programme that evening, everyone associated with the project can share in that sense of pride.
