This week we celebrated the Feast of Blessed Edmund Rice with a whole school Mass on Thursday. The College community witnessed a number of young men being baptised and receiving the sacrament of Eucharist for the first time. The College also appointed two new House Leaders, these young men have continued to demonstrate excellent leadership not only within their House but across the College community. Congratulations to all these young men.

We are fast approaching the halfway point of the Term. It is essential that students have planned their assessment schedule as we are entering the crucial assessment period. Revision needs to be an ongoing part of each student’s nightly homework. Electronic devices play a major role in our lives, but we need to make sure that students are using these devices responsibly and remove them (where appropriate) during homework time.
