Members of the transition year class, Colaiste Ide agus Iosef (Abbeyfeale) with their teachers, Caroline Horgan, Ailish Broderick, Eileen Davoren, Con Healy and Jim Tierney (principal) present a cheque for €2500 euro to Ms. Joanne Murphy from the Irish Cancer Society. The amount was the proceeds from the fashion show organised by the students in March. The charity was chosen in memory of the late Ms. Sarah McGarry
Appreciation for Kostal support
The school is very appreciative of the support it gets from the wider community. The co-operation of the business community helps the school to function to its full potential. This support can take many different forms and we are grateful for all. One company who has played a leading role in this regard is Kostal Ireland. Throughout the school year they provide support in a number of areas. For example, personnel from Kostal guide and assist students in areas like, interview preparation and team building etc. This contribution is deeply appreciated by the school.
Non Uniform Day
There will be a non uniform day this Wednesday. One of our third year students Aislinn O'Connell has been selected for the Irish team and will go to train and compete with them in Portugal this summer for the European Championships in Basketball. The theme of the non uniform day is green, white, gold and orange and the cost is €2.
UPDATE- The non-uniform day was a great success raising over €1,000 to go towards Aislinn's trip. Well done everyone.
