Aaron Dee (6th year) and Caragh Kilcoyne Burke (3rd year) are pictured receiving the Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador Award wall plaque from Minister of State Helen McEntee. This awards ceremony took place in the Honorable Society of Kings Inns in Dublin recently. Aaron and Carragh were accompanied by teachers Ms Phillips and Mr. Shannon. All four are members of the Amber Flag Committee in BCS, which organises initiatives to promote positive mental health in the school. Minister McEntee served as Minister of State for Mental Health last year when the Cycle Against Suicide was organised in BCS. Our Transition Year students cycled to Knock and back to promote awareness for this most worthy cause. Well done to all involved.
Congratulations to our Transition Year students who successfully completed an Emergency First Aid and CPR/AED Training Course provided by ‘Lifeline Training’. The students were commended for their excellent attention and participation throughout the course.

We have had a fantastic reaction to our brand new school canteen which opened this week. Gerr, and her team from Castle Catering, specialise in freshly made, healthy food at affordable prices. They serve a wide variety of hot & cold meals to suit all tastes. In BCS we are committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle through healthy eating. We do not sell any ‘junk food’ such as chips, soft drinks, sweets or crisps etc. We promote meals that are nutritionally balanced with all the ingredients needed to create a healthy yet satisfying meal.
Congratulations to Niamh O’Neill who won a bronze medal in the School’s All-Ireland’s Long Jump event today with a jump of 5:43. Niamh also narrowly missed out on a medal in the Hurdles Final but did post another pb.
