Year 10 Man of the Month - March 19

Looking at our Year 10 College men today, it’s challenging to distinguish them from the slightly nervous students who first walked through the ‘Big Green Gates’, almost three years ago. What is visible, is the vast array of talent, an unrelenting work ethic, and an aspiration to develop as young Christians. This is certainly the case for our Man of the Month Award Winners. Congratulations, gentlemen.

French Trip April 2019

The French Department has just returned from a fantastic trip to Paris where the boys got an insight into the history, culture and language of France. They had a guided tour of the Louvre where they were able to see some of the world’s most famous paintings such as Géricault’s Raft of the Medusa, Delacroix’s Liberty leading the people and, of course, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, this was followed by a trip to the Château de Versailles and a tour of the apartments of the Sun King. On the second day, there was a climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower with magnificent views all over Paris and a boat trip in the sunshine on the river Seine with a picnic lunch. Afterwards, there was shopping on t

Musicians excel in Clonard Monastery

Our Annual Concert was held in Clonard Monastery on Sunday 7th April at 7pm. Watched and enjoyed by a huge audience within the church and by countless viewers at home and abroad via the Clonard Webcam, our young musicians put on what can only be described as one of the best concerts the College has enjoyed in years. One audience member's words sum up the evening perfectly: "It was an uplifting and spiritual experience in every sense where something transcendent emerged from all the collective talents and cumulative input, practice and effort of all concerned. There was great 'soul' in the variety of music and great imagination and sensitivity in performance. The organisation, switch-overs be

World War One Battlefields visit 2019

Two of our Year 10 students have recently returned from a fantastic visit to the World War One Battlefields in Belgium and northern France. We had a very early flight to Gatwick airport and then travelled to Ypres via the Channel tunnel which was an experience in itself! Ypres proved to be an ideal base from which to explore the battlefields of the Ypres Salient and the Somme. There were many highlights of the visit: the Island of Ireland Peace Park at Messines, the trenches of Thiepval Wood; Tyne Cot cemetery; the German military cemetery at Langemark; the Memorial to the Missing at Thiepval and many more. We returned home with some lasting memories of the Irish contribution to World War
