Week beginning October 24 2011
Last week the First Year Boys stepped out for their first match against Arklow C.B.S., unfortunately it was not their day and they were narrowly defeated. The First Year boys will play Arklow Community College in their next match. Best of luck to the boys!
The Under 14 boys will meet Blessington Community College in the first round of the Schools’ Leinster Championship. Best of luck to the team!
The Senior Boys’ Team played Presentation College, Bray in the Wicklow ‘A’ Senior Football League. The team was narrowly defeated on the day. Hard luck to the boys.
50 students from Avondale Community College will be participating in the Wicklow Cross- Country League. This will be held in Avondale House. Best of luck to all involved.
Comhairle na nÓg
Congratulations to Craig Curley, who is a Comhairle na nÓg delegate. This is a forum for children and young people to discuss local and national issues of relevance to them. Well done to Craig!
Avondale Community College would like to extend our thanks to all employers who have taken Transition Year Students as part of their work experience week. This is a valuable educational activity for students and it could not happen without the help and support of employers.
Last week 62 TY Students set off to Killary, under the guidance of Ms. Hannafin and Mr. Breen. The trip was a great success. The students took part in a wide variety of adventure activities, including Laser Games, Kayaking and even a Turf Challenge! By all accounts the trip was extremely enjoyable and entertaining, with the highlight of the trip being The Miss Killary Competition 2011!
Ecology Field Trip
Our 6 Year Biology students, along with Ms. Murphy and Ms. Kelleher took their studies outside the classroom last week when they travelled to Wicklow National Park, Glendalough to complete the Ecology Fieldwork section of their Leaving Certificate Course. Many thanks to Mrs O Kelly, a former member of staff, Donna's Mum and the rangers for their expertise and assistance.
