Former Coláiste na hInse Dáltaí Rewarded with Entrance Scholarships in UCD

On the evening of 14th of November UCD acknowledged students entering first year in the university with exceptional Leaving Certificate results. This year Aoife Walker, Charlie Keogh, Freya Martin and Cormac Watson were recognised for their exceptional points. Each of them have undertaken subjects in the discipline of Science at UCD. At the Ad Astra event it was really satisfying to see student, parents and teacher unite together to celebrate the exceptional achievement of hard working, diligent students who not only had exceptional results but who also contributed to the life of the school in the arts and maths area of extracurricular studies.

Coláiste na hInse has always instilled in students 'Per ardua ad astra;' with hard work you will reach your stars.  We wish these daltaí and all our Leaving Certificate pupils for 2018 continued success in their studies.

CSI in CNI to Solve Murder Mystery

The Coláiste na hInse clann were stunned on Tuesday, November 7th by the murder of ‘Betty’ in Seomra B12. Fortunately the Idirbliain Crime Scene Investigation team were on the premises, and the First Responders quickly sealed off the scene. The Preservation Team safeguarded the crime scene to allow the observation team to gather finger prints and shoe prints. Trace elements of fibres were also detected. The scene was photographed and the CNI Pathology team were also present. The Idirbliain CSI foireann have worked closely with an Garda Síochána, and Betty’s killer has been arrested and charged. As he was led away the suspect blasted, “And I would have got away with it too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids!”

Boys' Soccer Season Underway

The 1st year boys soccer team off to a flying start with a 4-0 victory at home to Skerries C.C. A cagey opening half ended 0-0, in part thanks to a good save by keeper Enda O'Carroll. After the break the lads increased the tempo and scored 2 goals in 3 minutes.'Fox in the box' Ryan Graham broke the deadlock after a loose ball fell to him in the inside the penalty box and his snapshot took a kind deflection to open the scoring, although he claims it was going in anyways. Less than 2 minutes later, Kobi Ndebs doubled the lead with a cracking finish from the edge of the box after a good dribble. He then took his tally to 2 for the day seven minutes later to all but secure the 3 points after the keeper spilled a high awkward delivery and he finished from 3 yards out. Sean Mc Carthy rounded off the scoring with 6 minutes remaining after a breakaway as Skerries had pushed up. 

There was great bród shown in defence to maintain their clean sheet as they held off any late efforts. Skipper for the day Caelem Tunstead led with Aidan Clarke solid all game. Daebhan Molloy excelled in midfield throughout in what was a very solid opening performance from the lads. Next 2 games are up against Dunshaughlin and Ardgillan.
