This show should be a very funny and enjoyable experience for all. Keep posted for more details next week!
Subject choice is coming up soon and it's very important to choose the right subjects for you that will follow on to choosing your college courses. Teachers will be giving a 5 minute presentation on their subject and explaining all the little bits that are essential to know.
This will mean students will be in the know of what subjects to take for the Leaving Cert Course. Pay extra attention to Ms.Ryan during your Career Guidance classes, especially in the next 5 weeks as she will be able to guide you down the right track.

Today, the seniors take on rivals St.Kierans in a Leinster Quarter-final in what should turn out to be a very physical and entertaining match that will show the character of the teams. We wish the very best of luck to the CBS boys.
Thursday January 11th: BT Young Scientist
Two groups of TY students have managed to grip a place in the very tough and brain twisting competition, the BT Young Scientist. This takes place in the RDS in Dublin on Thursday and Friday (10th and 11th). One of the two teams is made up of Liam Moore, James Fields and Daniel Walsh. Their idea is on the use of foam rolling in young athletes. The second is Luke Cullen, Michael Rafter and Jack Murphy. Their idea is on the improvement in recycling and waste management in primary schools. We wish the lads the very best of luck.

Also a quick reminder regarding that…. Remember to hand your booklet and your forms in to Mr.Morrissey as soon as possible.

Last Monday, the 4th December, the TY choir visited Troy’s Court to sing for the residents. They sang Christmas and traditional Irish songs. Colm Dunne played his flute and Matthew Moore played his badhran. Kehlan O’Mahony sang a solo of Wild Rover. The residents thoroughly enjoyed the performance and the choir enjoyed themselves immensely.
