This week was full of matches for both junior and senior players! On Monday, the Junior Camogie team played a blitz in Youghal where they played against teams from all over the South East. Everybody enjoyed their day. On Tuesday, Mr. O’Shea brought the Senior soccer team up to Thurles to play against the Presentation Secondary School. All of the girls played very well but the other team were very strong and unfortunately we lost. On Wednesday, the Senior Camogie team travelled up to Thurles for another match!

WIT Award Ceremony
Tuesday last, three TY students, Aoife Brown, Eileen Fitzgerald and Amy Reynolds were invited to WIT for an award ceremony. This was to present certificates to those who got an A in Junior Cert Business Studies. WIT is one of Ireland's largest integrated Business Schools and offer many courses in this area. Over 200 students from schools in Waterford, Wexford, Tipperary and Kilkenny received this award. It was a good opportunity for the girls to hear from some business lecturers, who outlined the growing importance of business in the world today. Ms.Gleeson, Mrs. Hughes and parents attended, and there was a great atmosphere around. And to top it off, there were lovely refreshments afterwards. A great night was had by all.

Last Monday, the TY students had a debate on the refugee crisis.We spent the last couple of weeks preparing for this. Both sides had strong points, and showed great knowledge, research and teamwork.They hope to have many more debates as the year progresses, and also to enhance their debating skills further. It was a new experience and was enjoyed by all.
