Congratulations to our 1st year Boys Gaelic team who maintained their Campbell Cup title in Roscommon today by defeating Castlerea CS and Roscommon CBS. The lads showed tremendous spirit coming from 10 points down against a strong Roscommon CBS side in the final to win by 7 points in the end. Star performers on the day were Eddie Groarke, Danny Regan, Niall Regan, Matthew Lynch, Matty Frayne and Jack Sullivan. Many thanks to Mr Ryan and McHugh for their hard work throughout the year.
Congratulations to the BCS Athletics squad who travelled to the Connaught Finals in Athlone IT today. A special mention goes to Niamh O’Neill who won both her events, the 80m hurdles and the Long Jump. Well done to Isaac Oladipupo on winning the 3000m Senior Boys Walk. Many other excellent performances including a well deserved second place to the Intermediate Girls Relay, which was made up of Mary Carr, Grainne Delaney, Gemma Foody, Olivia Halas and Niamh O’Neill.
We are now taking orders for the 2017 BCS Yearbook. It’s jam packed with articles and photos from another busy school year. The cost for the full colour edition is just €10. It’s a must have for great memories of good times at BCS. Transition Year students will be coming around to the classes in the next few days taking orders.
The Transition Year students enjoyed a fantastic 3 day trip to the historic city of Rome this past week. Highlights of the trip included tours of the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel, The Pantheon, The Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain and of course the spectacular Colosseum. The students are to be commended on their exemplary behaviour throughout the trip.
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.
