Welcome to Visiting Students
As we settle back in to a new year at Árd Scoil na nDéise we are joined by new students visiting us from around the world. These students will be a part of the Árd Scoil community for the remainder of the school year. We hope that they will have a very enjoyable time in our school. We also wish the very best to all of the visiting students who have now returned home after spending the first half of the school year with us.

On the 15th of January the County Cross Country championships were held in St Augustine’s college. The day started off with the minor girls 1500m race. The Árd Scoil minor girl’s team was led home by Lucy Holmes who had a great run to finish in second place. The rest of the team was made up by Sarah Lacey, Anne Mc Grath, Aoife Dee, Kate Hickey, Orla Keane and Talithakoumi Macaulay.
One of the most competitive races of the day was the Intermediate girls. The Árd Scoil finished in third place. The team was made up of Kate McGrath, Sinead O’Brien, Sarah Walsh, Ailbhe Looby, Kate Faherty and Niamh Lenane.
Our final competitors of the day were in the senior girl’s race. Grace Hefferenan had a great run to lead the team home followed by Catriona O’Brein, Cliona Ryan and Ornaith Keane. These great runs meant they won the team prize in this age group.
To finish off a great day, Árd Scoil won overall best girls school. Thanks to Ms. Flavin and Mrs. Ashe for all of their help. Best of luck to all of the girls who will compete in the East Munster’s on the 30th of January.
