Thank you to all who helped with the recent Easter Egg raffle where we raised €211.

The money went to the most vulnerable orphans in Coloma, Uganda, so thank you for making a difference in these little ones' lives. Fr Lorcan Kenny travelled to Coloma over Easter to visit Sr Mona and Sr Eileen Maher of Roscrea and join them for their Easter ceremonies.

School Activities: It has been an extremely busy week back after the Easter break. On Monday, April 29th, we had Fifth Year LCA, Graphics and Construction task interviews, and we had a TY road safety seminar in Thurles. On Tuesday, April 30th, we had a Leaving Cert Art drawing exam. On Wednesday, May 1st, we had the LCVP written exam along, Construction Studies Day Exam and the Girls East Munster Athletics also took place. On Thursday we had Construction Studies Day Exam, Junior Cycle Metalwork and musical auditions for Third Year students going into TY next year. On Friday we had Construction Studies Day Exam, Junior Cycle Metalwork and Agricultural Science Project assessment and interviews.

Chaser Fundraiser: Our Chaser Fundraiser is going very well and is fast approaching. €50 gives entry to the event for two adults and two children. It takes place on May 17th in the Racket Hall and promises to be a great night.

London Trip: On Thursday morning, April 11th, 40 Second Year students and their teachers Ms Quirke, Mr Fitzgerald, Mr Flynn, Ms Dempsey and Ms Ryan headed to London for three days. This for many students was their first time away from home and there was great excitement. During the trip the group enjoyed a guided tour of London. They visited the History and Science Museum, spent a morning walking the red carpet with celebrities in Madam Tussaud's and even managed to get a quiet word with Theresa May at number 10. The group finished a wonderful three-day trip getting a great view of London from the London Eye. Thanks to all the teachers for giving of their time to ensure a great trip was had by all.


'My Fair Lady': Well done to Courtney Heyes (TY) who took part in Roscrea Musical Society's Production of 'My Fair Lady'. Courtney was a chorus member on stage and represented the school brilliantly. She took the part of 'Rosie' in the school's production of 'Thank you for the Music' earlier this year and has great singing and acting talent.


Barry Nash Hurling Tournament - Roscrea vs Scariff: This match was held in Ballyskeanach/Killavilla GAA field at 12pm. The game got off to a flier with both teams exchanging scores. Scariff were a physically bigger team and it helped them as they were winning most of the puck outs. But some nice scores and good team-play got Roscrea back in the game. Score at half time: Scariff 4-4, Roscrea 2-8.

The second half was much the same but Scariff weren’t as good in the air as they were in the first half, but still they managed to get some nice scores and pull away from Roscrea. Roscrea tried all they could to pull it back but they just couldn’t put the ball in the Scariff net. Scariff proved too good for Roscrea.


Offaly Minors: On Saturday, April 27th, the Offaly Minors lost narrowly to Wexford at O'Connor Park. JJ O'Brien, Luke Watkins, Paul Cleary and DJ McLoughlin represented Coláiste Phobal well, with JJ named as Vice–Captain. All play with Shinrone.
