Mohill Community College students enjoy trips to Mullingar and Dublin

School Mass
Last week, students & staff attended mass in St Patrick's Church, to celebrate our school year. The theme of the Mass was Light, with the celebration accompanied by our wonderful school choir.
Many thanks go to our Religion department and all participating students & teachers for their organisation.

Irish Trip
6th year Irish students, as part of their course headed for Mullingar Arts Centre last week for Fibin's production of An Triail. In the company of Ms McCarville, the students could see the words they study in class come to life on stage. A worthwhile excursion!

Soccer Outing
The Nations League encounter between Ireland and Wales was attended last week by a group from MCC, heading to the Aviva after school, in the hope of witnessing victory. Alas, a defeat was in store however, an entertaining evening out was had by all. Many thanks to Mr Kennedy, Ms Flynn, Mr Shortt & Mr Gannon for accompanying the students.

Congratulations
Well done to Saoirse Fox, Leaving Cert class of 2018 in MCC, for receiving a scholarship towards her continued studies, from Aurivo, for her efforts and study in Agricultural Science. A wonderful achievement!

Girls Active
With much appreciated input from Michelle Fanning from Leitrim Sports Partnership, the Girls Active group are going strong in the gym on Tuesdays from 4:15 - 5pm. Call in or chat to Ms Purcell for more details if interested.

Sport
It has been a busy sporting week in MCC. First up, on Wednesday 17th, Mohill played Coola in boys football, in Mohill. Our U-14 boys took the win at home, in an entertaining 3-13 to 3-7 victory.
Thanks to Mr Duffy for team management. Our first year boys also took victory against Coola that day, winning with a scoreline of 3-5 to 8 points, well done to the boys and Mr Nolan for their continued success.
On Thursday, the boys were in action again at home, this time in basketball versus Ballinamore. While our U-19 team were unlucky to suffer a defeat, the U-16 boys took a brilliant victory against the visitors.
Thank you to Ms McGovern for her work with the basketball teams. As we go to print, the girls are away at football, so check back in next week for updates!

Geography Field Trip
With the much appreciated guidance & organisation of Ms McManus & Ms Scollan, our leaving cert Geography students headed to Derrygonnelly centre in Fermanagh last Tuesday, to continue their project studies.
The weather thankfully allowed the students to get the best from the trip, with both teachers & students agreeing the excursion was of huge benefit to their studies.
