CNI Collecting Non-Perishable Foods in Support of Core

CORE is a community based, volunteer led initiative situated in Meath since January, 2015. Their focus is to improve the quality of life for families within the community. One of their local initiatives is The Nourish Project themed ‘’The Joy of Giving’’. CORE collect non- perishable food items from the public. They then repack this food into parcels and distribute these parcels to families in need throughout Meath.

Coláiste na hInse has kindly agreed to be partners in the Nourish Project. Each student is asked to bring in ONE non-perishable food item on a Tuesday. (This may be from the kitchen cupboard) They then re- distribute this food. Core will be collecting our contributions commencing next Wednesday 14th March 2018 and each Wednesday that the school is opened thereafter. The support of all students and parents would be greatly appreciated on this matter.

Examples of non-perishable goods are listed here.



Naughton Scholarship Application Available Now for Science Students

Leaving Certificate students can now apply for the Naughton Scholarships.

These scholarships are a scheme of scholarships to promote the study of engineering, science and technology at third level by students in Ireland.  Each year from February to May Leaving Certificate students can apply for a scholarship if they intend on studying science, engineering or technology at third level that year.

We are particularly interested in students applying to study STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related subjects rather then the more practical sciences (Medicine, Nursing, Veterinary, Physiotherapy etc).  All applications are reviewed in August each year and the winners of scholarships are notified in September.  Full details are available on the Naughton Scholarship website.
