Internet Safety Infographics

Our Digital Media Students were busy designing online safety Infographics this week, well done to all concerned. Staying safe online is such a crucial part of student well-being in our modern world. Lets use IT in a safe way to broaden our minds and enhance our learning.

Hockey on the Up

Well done to our Girl’s Hockey Teams as they continue to develop their skills. The girl’s have really enjoyed working on their skills under the watchful eye of Ms. Hickey and Ms. De Burca. We have had great performances over the year and in particular in our last two games against Villers and the Ursuline, in Thurles. Keep up the good work.

Robotics Club

MCC Robotics Club was in full action today working on the Dell Vex Robotics & Lego Mindstorm. It is great to see the interaction between our students and their teachers, Mr. Hill and Mr. O Connor, as they build/design their projects this afternoon. Great to see the STEM area of our school growing and developing in a fun way.

Vex Robotics Competition

Congratulations to Mr Hill and our Robotics Teams on reaching the regional finals in Cork at the end of April. In the recent competition our team had to develop their strategies with other schools so as to defeat their opponents. It was great to see the Boys and Girls using their coding skills together with their communication and inter personal skills as they reassessed  their options throughout the day. Best of luck in the Final.

Visit By Limerick Hurlers – All Ireland Champions 2018

We were honoured to welcome six members of the Limerick Hurling Team who won the Liam McCarthy Cup this year. Cian Lynch, Barry Nash, Gearoid Hegarty, Aaron Gillane, Seán Finn and Diarmuid Byrnes gave freely of their time as they shared their experience of the big day and their school memories with our students and staff. We had a great day and our students loved being able to raise the Liam McCarthy Cup themselves.
