TY German/Chinese Primary School Club
For the past number of Wednesday’s TY German students along with their teacher Ms Emily Bergin have held a German club for pupils of 5th and 6th class from St. Colmcilles NS, St Joseph’s NS, Castleiney NS and Clonmore NS.
The club runs from 15:20 to 16:20 and is a huge success. The pupils are loving the introduction to the both the German and Chinese language and culture.
Well done to all German TY students involved.
Congratulations to Our Junior Ladies Football team who are now through to the Munster Semi-Final. On Thursday 25th, the girls played the quarter final against the Sacred Heart, Clonakilty in the 4G Astro in Páirc Uí Caoimh. The game ended very comprehensively with Our Lady’s finishing 7-9 to 1-2. A fantastic result, well done to the team and their coaches Ms Mary Fitzpatrick and Ms Rachel Kelly. Best of luck in the Munster semi final.
On Tuesday 23rd our TY students had the fantastic opportunity to sample Tai Chi and Kung Fu at Our Lady’s Templemore.
We welcomed Charles from Confucius Institute in UCC, who introduced our Transition Year pupils to the art of Tai Chi and Kung Fu. It was a fascinating experience for the students, to be introduced to the Chinese martial arts, which teaches us about mindfulness and self defense.

Our Lady’s was delighted to host ‘Knights of St Columbanus Debate Competition’ on Tuesday 23rd of January.
This is a public speaking competition which not only helps to improve communication skills but also improves confidence amongst students. On the day we were competed against The Ursuline, Thurles.
Congrats to both of our teams who were really good but unfortunately beaten on the day.
Team 1: Caoimhe Delaney, Sinead Ryan & John Buckley
Team 2: Rory Wilkinson, Claire Quigley & Niamh Hogan.
Well done to all involved especially to their teachers/mentors Ms Tara Talbot & Ms Natasha Keane.
