Our first year girls team travelled to Ballyhaunis to play in the Bumper Blitz involving 450 girls from all over Connacht. The idea was to encourage new girls to take up the sport by playing in small games in no competitive conditions. The girls displayed their talents in very tough weather conditions but we had a great time. We are really looking forward to next year.
18 of our transition year girls have been working very hard learning the songs for this very special concert. It will consist of an evening off uplifting church and contemporary music. It is taking place Thursday 5th of May at 7.30pm in the Breaffy Sports Arena, Castlebar. This music celebration will be provided by over 350 young people from various schools across the diocese. The proceeds from this very special gathering will go to Pieta House. We would very much appreciate it if as many parents could support this rare and special event.
Tickets are €12 and are available from Teresa by ringing 0872424927.

Good luck to our transition year team who compete in the national finals of CANSAT in Birr Castle today, Friday 15th. The competition is run in conjunction with European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO), European Space Agency (ESA), Science Foundation Ireland (SFI), Cork Electronics Industry Association (CEIA) and Galway Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT).
Their mission is to place their project into a rocket, to measure air temperature, air pressure, humidity and soil temperature. While constantly receiving data back to a laptop and tracking their project via GPS as it returns safely back to Earth using a parachute they designed and made themselves.
Photos and videos of the event will be shared on the teams Facebook page and snapchat account.
