Moyne Community School

Senior Rugby: The Moyne Senior Rugby team played in the Leinster A Final on Tuesday 19th of March. The match was played in Mullingar RFC grounds. The opposition was CBS Naas, this year’s cup winners. The game was played in good conditions, the game was intense right from the first kick off. Moyne competed strong all over the pitch but found it tough going against a very strong Naas outfit. Naas had big, powerful men all over the field but the Moyne men were no shrinking violets and big hits were going on at every turn. At the full time whistle Naas CBS were convincing winners on a 35-8 score line. The score line does not tell the full story however. The men of Moyne played with pride, guts, determination and skill. They battled manfully right until the final whistle blew. They were rewarded with a brilliant forwards try from Leitrim Man Eoin O Bradaigh. Unfortunately the conversion was narrowly missed by enthusiastic captain, Tony Lawrence. Congratulations to all of the panel on a brilliant year, shield semi finalists and league finalists. Moyne CS can be proud of this group of players who have enhanced the reputation of their school on the rugby field. A big thank you also goes to Mr Prior, the team coach for his sheer passion and determination in bringing rugby in the school to new heights.

Daffodil Day: On Friday March 22nd the school was awash with yellow as students and teachers donned daffodils for National Daffodil Day in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. The fundraising this year was a joint effort headed up by the YSI group and the Mr Masterson’s LCVP class. Students had an opportunity to by a ‘Daffodil for their Darling.’ Daffodils were hand delivered to students on the day with a gift card attached from the sender. Thanks to all those who supported this very worthy cause. Your support is greatly appreciated. Well done to all involved in the selling and running of the campaign.

Almost There: The school library is in its final stage of refurbishment at this point. Thanks to all those who helped Ms Kennedy in the sorting of the books, your help is greatly appreciated! Ms Kelly’s 4th year art class have undertaken an art project within the library, using the bookshelves as their canvas. We can’t wait to see the finished product! The fully refurbished library should be fully operational after Easter, complete with new comfy reading zone! This is a YSI initiative.

IHCPT Table Quiz: Table Quizzes were help for 1st,2nd and 4th years last week, in aid of the IHCPT. The table quizzes were organised by Ms Flanagan and Ms Smith.
