Well done to the First Year Girls Basketball team on reaching the Minor C Girls All Ireland playoffs. The Playoffs were held in Ennis where the girls played against Colasite Muire Ennis, Loreto Cavan and Tullamore College. The BCS girls put up a great fight but were sadly defeated. The girls have had an extremely successful year and we look forward to seeing them back in action again next year. Well done to all involved.
Congratulations to our 1st year Camogie team who had a fantastic victory in the Mayo blitz held in Bekan today.

Thanks also to the Mayo Camogie Board for organising the competition.
Tuesday April 4th was our school’s first ever Global Goals Day. This day showcased Transition Year’s work in Development Education. The study hall was transformed into a carnival of Presentation Stands on several of the Global Goals, our very own ‘Spin The Global Wheel’, a food corner where food we would normally waste (brown bananas, leftover chicken, over-ripe fruit) were magically transformed into appetising snacks and also a gardening corner full of sprouting lettuce and carrots.
Well done to the Junior Boys Hurling team on reaching the North Connaught Hurling final. The final was played in Ballyvary against Westport. The BCS lads were very unlucky to lose in what was an excellent game of hurling with the teams being separated by just a late injury time free for Westport. Well done to all involved.
