Student Summer Achievements

Sean Mc Grath, 2nd year had a very busy summer. He represented Ireland with the Kerry Soccer team who represented Ireland in Taiwan at the International Children's Games. Sean plays his soccer with Park FC. After his 10 days in Taiwan the team came out 4th in the competition. As if this wasn't enough for the talented youth he also did trials for the Irish U15 Hibernia Cup squad where 50 players were fighting for 18 places. Congratulations to Sean on these achievements and the best of luck in his future sporting career.

Weekly Notes


Congratulations to Miss Costello, Miss Leane, Elaine Ryall and Alannah
Whelan members of the Kerry Junior County team who are now Munster
Champions. They with their team mates played Cork in Killeedy, Co Limerick
on Sunday last May 14th. It was all level on the scoreboard at full time
though they were 3 points ahead at half time. The game then went to extra
time and Kerry came away as winners on the narrowest of margins , one point
separating the teams. Well done to all the players as their hard work rate
and dedication aid off on Limerick soil.

The Transition Year Class of 2016 in St.Joseph's Secondary School, Ballybunion celebrated their graduation on Friday night last May 27th.  Their tutors and parents were present to share this occasion with them. Mr.O'Donovan opened proceedings with a very complimentary speech about the group and their TY teachers. Mr. Daly conducted the ceremony with the help of Miss M Mulvihill, Miss Costello and Miss Kelly. They recalled their achievements and activities to date and were all presented with their various certificates, Gaisce awards, among many. The Bunyans presented the Michael Bunyan enterprise shield to those enterprising 'Rip Bar' creators. The student of the year was named to the utter surprise of the recipient, Sarah Jane Carmody who with the support of her group cut their artistic graduation cake. Congratulations to all the group and to their parents and family for the great students they have reared. Thanks also to the Parent's Council who were represented and the staff who attended the night or were unavoidably missing. Wishing the group a safe trip to Italy as they depart on Monday next May 30th.

Sports Day 2016

On a beautiful sunny morning in Ballybunion on last Friday May 27th the school students and staff enjoyed a memorable sports day. There were lots of competitive and fun events, culminating in the presentation of prizes before the end of the school day. The abiding memory will be of all the students happily playing with their camáns and sliotars between events. The event would never have taken place without the great behind the scenes work of Mr.Daly, Miss Costello and their band of helpers. The stars of the day competitively were (besides the staff team of soccer players who overcame strong opposition from the Leaving Cert class) Female athlete of the day, Caoimhe Spillane a first year. The male sports person of the day was Scott Godson. Congratulations to them both and to the staff and students who took part and those who helped out making it a day to remember.
