St. Joseph’s College, Borrisoleigh
Our senior boys teams were narrowly defeated in the All Ireland Semi Final in Mullingar on Wednesday last. They put up a great fight and did super considering their recent introduction to volleyball. Our cadette boys team were also knocked out at the All Ireland Quarter final in Portlaoise on Friday. They went down to an older, stronger and much more experienced team but will come back fighting next year. The junior boys and girls teams will commence trials shortly for their competitions which start in January.
Science and Coding
We are delighted to have gotten through to phase 2 of the Astro Pi challenge. Our second years are busy thinking up of their next experiment and will have to learn to code in python for this challenge. If we succeed to the next stage our experiment will be run live on the International Space Station!
Simon Humphries made a video for the competition Reel Life Science. Unfortunately he didn’t win but he did put together a great video that can be seen on youtube – ‘Flying Wee Myth’. I would recommend a look if you’re interested in seeing how urine from a toilet bowl can end up on your toothbrush after flushing!!
St Joseph’s College Borrisoleigh 3-19
Colaiste na Trocaire Rathkeale 3-17
Our senior hurlers had to perform heroics last Tuesday to book their place in the Munster final after a nail biting, “come from behind”, extra time thriller. Having enjoyed a relatively easy passage to date, this was the test that really showed what this team is truly made of.
