CEIST Bake Off
The CEIST (Catholic Schools, an Irish Schools Trust) Bake Off competition is under way with over 70 entrants to date. The theme of the bake off is ‘Talents’. Pupils of CEIST schools had the opportunity to enter a cake into the competition; these students will then be short listed with the finalists taking part in a bake off against the clock. We wish all the best to our own entrants to the competition; Ailbhe Looby and Muireann Walsh. The final will be held on March 27th and hopefully we will have an Árd Scoil student present.
Soroptimist Public Speaking Competition
The regional final of the Soroptimist Public Speaking Competition was held in Wexford on Sunday 22nd February. Árd Scoil na nDéise student Doireann O’Brien was one of eight regional finalists to take part on the day. Doireann spoke wonderfully on the day but unfortunately did not proceed to the national final. We wish all the best to those students who proceeded to the final.

Feis Maitiú Corcaigh
Caitriona O’Brien, 5th Year, recently took part in the Feis Maitiú Music and Drama Festival held in Cork. Caitriona who is a student of Maria Condon, took part in the piano over 16 confined category and won the Kilshanna Perpetual Trophy. Cairtiona has always been a huge help as part of the school choir and plays beautifully at our school masses. We would like to congratulate Caitriona on her success.
