Challenge


Many thanks to everyone for encouraging the boys to take part in our September Challenge last Friday. Despite an overcast start, the sun came out soon after and we had a great 5-6 hours of walking, snacking, and chatting. For anyone who hasn't seen the short video of the day, you can watch it BY CLICKING HERE. With over 70 1st Years taking part, it was brilliant to see so many of the lads making such a positive start to the year and getting involved in something new. Our October Challenge will take place at the end of the month and the boys will receive all of the details a week or so beforehand.



Guidance


Mr.Doolan (the school Chaplain), is going to introduce himself to the 1st Years over the coming weeks. He is an excellent source of support and offers an additional point of contact for any student / parent. If you feel that your son could benefit from some assistance, whether it be dealing with school, any stresses or anxieties, etc, please feel free to get in touch with myself or Mr.Doolan.



Physiotherapy


The school has the extremely convenient services of a fully qualified in-house Physiotherapist. Robert Pryce, who works afternoons/evenings from the school gym, is available for appointments with any student. If your son needs Physio at any stage during the year, appointments are €50, and Robert can be contacted at 085 7791638

Vaccines


The HSE 1st Year vaccines (CLICK HERE) are scheduled for November 9th and 10th here in school. We'll pass the arrangements on to everyone a week or so before that but basically the boys all come to school as normal, get called out of class to get their vaccine for 15 mnis, and then go straight back to class.
