On Tuesday 10th of October Transition Year students visited Brigit’s Gardens in Moycullen as part of their Development Education module. As part of a simulation exercise students were brought on a journey around the gardens where they met various challenges linked to the Global Goals. From using a hand cranking device to charge a phone to making a ‘tippy tap’ for clean water everyone became more aware of the problems that exist in our world today. This interesting workshop was inspiring for our own projects linked to The Global Goals .
Thanks to Mrs Murray and Ms Carty for all their help on the trip.
Congratulations to present TY students Molly Curran and Ciara Loftus pictured receiving their Junior Certificate results from Mr McDonagh.

Both girls took the opportunity to thank all of their teachers and their respective Year-Heads Mrs Mooney and Mrs Waldron for their help throughout their Junior Certificate.
The 1st Year Boys played in the Mayo Colleges blitz on Monday at the Bekan COE. We fielded two teams on the day, but lost both games narrowly, to St Louis Kiltimagh and Foxford. However 40 1st year boys in total wore the school colours for the first time in their BCS careers and all played their hearts out.
Ann Marie & Caroline from the BOI dropped in on Tuesday to deliver 100 tickets for the Ireland V Moldova International soccer match in the Aviva Stadium on October 6th. They also presented the school with a €250 One4All Voucher. This was in recognition of the work done by last year’s TY class in respect of the school bank established in conjunction with the local BOI branch. Thank you to Ms. Osgood for facilitating the initiative. Thanks also to the BOI for their ongoing support. Well done to all!
