WHO CARES FOR THE COMERAGHS?

Evidently the pupils of St. Augustine's College do! The school swept the boards at a recent prize giving ceremony held in the Civic Offices, Dungarvan. Students were invited to submit paintings, essays, poems and audio/visual presentations highlighting the beauty of the Comeragh mountain range. The competition was organised by the Irish Uplands Forum in conjunction with a major conference due to take place in the Park Hotel, Dungarvan on Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th of May. The Friary won first prize in the Secondary Schools category and also took overall honours in the Senior and Junior sections. Anna Flynn and Molly Curran both transition year students shared the senior prize while Sarah Fitzgerald 3rd year and Ella Fay 2nd year did likewise in the Junior category. The prizes were presented by Frank Nugent, Honorary Chairman of the I.U.F. and eminent ecologist Dr. Mary Tubridy. Also present were local representatives Teresa Wright and Damien Geoghegan. Congratulations to the prizewinners and a big thank you to staff members who encouraged their participation.

International Chemistry Olympiad

International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO)


Ger Crowley (6th year) will travel to Hanoi, Vietnam on July 20th as a member of the Irish team taking part in the International Chemistry Olympiad. Ger was selected on a preliminary panel of fifteen at a qualifying competition in February, and participated in team training in DCU over the Easter break. Success in subsequent exams at DCU earned Ger a place on the Irish team. Returning on July 29th the team consists of two students from the Republic, (Ger being one) and two from Northern Ireland. This is indeed a great honour for St Augustine's and we wish you Ger and all the team a safe journey and every success in Hanoi.
