Christmas Wreaths

Southgate Florist visited ColáistenahInse in December to make Christmas wreaths with our Idirbliain students. The wonderful smell of fresh pine and eucalyptus added to the Christmas atmosphere within the school and every student returned home with a very professional looking Christmas wreath to hang on their front door.

CNI Dáltaí Competing on the National Stage

Kyla and Phoebe Boyle have been competing in the final stages of the Junior Debating National Mace (2019/2020 year - latter stages postponed until this academic year). This competition is the largest debating competition in the country at any level with over 500 entrants each year. When we returned in September, CNI had 4 speakers who had qualified for the 'National Finals Rounds' - top 80 in the country. Since then, Octo, Quarter and Semi Finals have taken place involving submitting recordings of speeches. We're delighted to report that Kyla has qualified for the national final (top 8 speakers) and while Phoebe just missed out (10th) she has been confirmed as the top first year in the country, an achievement that will be awarded officially in the new year. 

Gradam 2020

Gradam normally takes place in ColáistenahInse at the end of May but, as with so much else this year, it was delayed and finally took place in a socially distanced manner in December. Well done the award winners who represent everything we stand for here in Coláistena hInse.
