Congratulations to Laoise Collins who has reciecved a UCD Entrance Scholar Award last week.
Laoise is pictured at the awards ceremony in UCD, with her parents Tony and Louise Collins and Deputy Principal, Ms. Anne Monaghan.
On Thursday, 15th November 2018 Archbishop of Tuam, Michael Neary presented 19 of our senior cycle students with their Pope John Paul II Award at the Diocese Award ceremony at Our Lady's Basilica, Knock, Co. Mayo.
The award is dedicated to the memory of St Pope John Paul II, who showed a great love and confidence in young people. Christian leadership and service in the community are at the heart of what the award is about.
The award is made up of two strands. In strand one, young people are invited to commit themselves to active involvement in both the life of their local parish. The second strand asks for commitment to service of their community. On completion, the award participant is asked to reflect on how their involvement has helped them to better understand what it means to be a member of the Catholic Church.
The students have immersed themselves into the life of their parish and their community over the past year. They enhanced our school and parish liturgies through word, song and music, by prayer, serving, Ministers of the Word and of the Eucharist, helping out in their local choir, visiting hospitals/nursing homes, helping prepare local Churches for Christmas and Easter Liturgy and Church cleaning and so many other different ways in the parish and school.
Congratulations go to all those who received their award on the night. A special thanks too to the award recipients families and Award Leaders, Sr. Catherine O Connor and Mr. Jason Cotter for helping those participating in the award to achieve their goals.
A big thanks to all our Past Pres College students who joined us today along with their chosen 3rd Level colleges.
Having learnt about the great work that Christina Nobel has done for the less fortunate people of Vietnam and Mongolia we as a class decided to invite Christina to speak to us for our CSPE Action Project.
We were delighted when our teacher, Mr. Cotter told us that Christina had been in touch to confirm her acceptance of our invitation to speak to us.
In advance of Christina's visit we worked hard with in our committee groups to ensure the day would be well organised.
We fund raised to help support Christina's charity and raised over €250.
On Wednesday, the 17th of October, Christina and her assistant Jean arrived at the school and we gladly welcomed them to Athenry.
Despite having such a connection with the song, the fields of Athenry, this was Christina's first trip to Athenry and she was thrilled to be with us.
Following, a lunch time reception Christina spoke to us as a class group for over an hour, sharing with us her life story and how she has helped so many vulnerable children in Vietnam and Mongolia. Throughout her heart warming and honest presentation, Christina shared with us the many great success stories of the young people she and her team of expert care staff have worked with.
A very high profile and busy lady, we are hononured to have met with and listened to the wonderful Christina who really does have a heart of gold.
Her caring nature and stories have inspired many of us to seriously consider visiting and helping with her projects in Vietnam and Mongolia when we are finished school.
