2nd Year student makes Munster Schools Team!
Well done to the 5th & 6th year LCVP classes who were involved in fund raising recently. IMNDA is one of the school’s chosen charities for the 2018-2019 school year. The 5th year class organised a very enjoyable students v staff football game which was very well supported.
Gerardine Hayes visited the school on Friday accompanied by Jacquie O’Regan to meet the girls and was presented with a cheque for €324.80 for IMNDA. Both Gerardine and Jacquie were active members of the Parents’ Association for six years.
The school will continue to engage in fundraising activities to raise funds for this important cause.
Claire Cullinane Sexton had been name as one of the top performing student in higher level Junior Certificate 2018 and Shannon O’Gorman is one of the top performing female student in ordinary level Junior Certificate.
The girls will be presented with their awards from the Engineering Technology Teachers’ Association at the Annual Conference in the Mullingar Park Hotel on November 24th 2018. Well done to the girls on their wonderful achievement and to their Technology teachers Mr Woods.

First year students really enjoyed the dance work shop on Thursday. It was such good fun that it may be repeated during the year.
We look forward to updating you on the work of the Advocate team during the year.
Hockey continues to go from strength to strength in Sacred Heart. The school currently field five hockey teams. This is remarkable for a school of our size. It would not be possible without the commitment of the girls and the support of the teacher who give of their time to coach and organise the teams. Mr Cronin is coaching the Senior C team while Ms O’Donovan coaches the Senior B team. Ms M Lynch takes charge of the Juniors with Ms N Lynch taking the Minor team. Ms Flanagan is kept busy with the large number of 1st year trying their hand at hockey. She has excellent support from some of the senior players. On Thursday our Senior C team had an excellent victory over Colaiste Muire, Cobh 6-0. Today in beautiful sunshine on the Senior B team defeated Scoil Mhuire 2-1 and the minor team won their game 1-0. It is great to see so many of our Leaving Certificate students so committed to hockey. Well done to all.

Many thanks to the Leaving Certificate Peer Mentors who took time from their studies to host a coffee morning for the parents of 1st years students. The Peer mentors have supported the girls during the term as they made the transition to Secondary school. Many thanks to all the parents who were able to attend. They had a chance to chat and to meet the 1st year students. A presentation was made to Mrs Mary O’Neill ,the 1st year head, who retires at midterm. Mrs O’Neill has been an amazing year head and will be greatly missed by all the girls.
