Rang Cunningham Support Team Hope

Rang 3 Cunningham as part of their CSPE project filled over 90 shoe boxes for the Team Hope Shoe box appeal. Team Hope deliver shoe boxes to children in Eastern Europe or African Countries where there is no social welfare system, allowances or benefits. The shoe boxes bring laughter and excitement to a child who may never receive a gift.

New Jerseys for Rugby Team

Thank you very much to Callaghan's Butchers for their generous sponsorship of a new set of jerseys for the Coláiste na hInse rugby teams. We are also grateful to Boyne Rugby Club for arranging for the European Champions' Cup and Pro 14 trophies to visit the school recently. Many of the players had the opportunity to raise the trophies in their new jerseys, and it may inspire them to similar feats of glory.

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.
