Junk Kouture


Congratulations to the TY Junk Kouture  students under the direction of their teacher Ms. Frances Kilcommins who successfully completed nine truly amazing outfits for the national Junk Kouture competition. The girls will be competing in the regional finals during a week-long celebration of youth creativity from March 6th – 10th via the social media platform TikTok. The Junk Kouture judges will then select a line up of designs from this stage of the competition to advance on to the national final in May. Best of luck girls!

Basketball News


Both our first and second year teams played at home last week against Presentation College Headford. Our teams played well on the day but were unlucky with their results due to a strong Headford panel. They will play Glenamaddy Community School next Tuesday 28th February at a home game in our Sports Hall. Best of luck!

Irish Ladies Hexagonal Golf Tournament

Congratulations to Olivia Costello, second year student who was selected to play on the Irish Ladies team who competed in Spain at the International Hexagonal Tournament last week. The team finished in second place overall with impressive results from Olivia in all of her singles matches. As the youngest member of the Irish team, Olivia is a hugely talented young sportswoman and is fast becoming one of the leading names in Irish Womens’ Golf.
