Leaving Certificate 2013.
Pictured above is Dr McNiffe (centre) with some of the students at St Pat’s who achieved over 500 points in their Leaving Cert.
From left are; John Denning, Liam Connolly, Chris Gaffney, Michael Maguire, Thomas Kelly, Donal McEntee, Dr Mc Niffe (Principal),
Seamus Tierney (over 600 points), Adam Hough, Fionan Tierney, Daniel Maguire, Liam Fitzsimons and Cian Monahan.
Dr McNiffe and staff are really delighted with the terrific results and wish every boy the very best for his future. Ninteen students gained over 500 points, very significantly above the national average. Thirty five per cent of this years Leaving cert class took higher level maths and the new Project Maths did not seem to be a problem to students, judging by the results.
Cycle against suicide stops over at St Pat’s.
The cycle against suicide is an initiative started by Irish entrepreneur, Jim Breen, as a result of his appearance on RTE’ S The Secret Millionaire.
When our school heard about the campaign back in October there was huge interest. We were delighted to be chosen as an anchor school . A committee of seven students was then formed with the overall task of organizing the day. Weeks before the cycle
planning was in full swing and four from our committee went to the RTE studios to meet the main organizers and take part in a pre-recorded Colm Hayes radio programme.
The running order for the day was extremely busy and to say the least the school was buzzing. Staff, students and parents -past and present- joined forces to ensure that everything went to plan. Over seventy school members cycled to Belturbet to welcome the 250 cyclists and escort them back to the college. After refreshments in the canteen a concert was held featuring musicians and singers from The Royal, Breifne, Loreto and St. Pat’s and the male choir from the Rugby Club. At this stage a most energetic Jim Breen took over and as well as talking about his own story introduced three speakers who shared their experiences with us.
