W also give a special mention to Ronan Coughlan and Jamie Meskell as Leaving Cert students for their incredible committment over the years.
Congratulations to all
Its the type of scene you could get on a Christmas card but this was the scene in the Chríost Rí school yard and field today. Just one for the archives.
Best to all
In the current academic year alone , Coláiste Chríost Rí teams have achieved excellence in every arena. We are Simcox Cup Cork Colleges Football Champions, Senior Science Competition All-Ireland Champions and once again on Friday 23rd of February, we became Munster Cross Country Champions.
None of these could be achieved without the comittment of the students, parents and teachers so we thank everyone for these great moments.
That said, congratulations now to our senior Cross Country team on becoming the 2018 Munster Cross Country Champions.
On a very steep and tough course, our senior team put in another outstanding performance.
They were led home by Charlie O' Donovan in second place. He was closely followed by the team of Jack O' Connor, James Mintern, James Allen and Lee Moore, (pictured here)
To take home the gold medals at this stage is a massive achievement and all in Chríost Rí are proud of these great athletes.
Congratulations to Ben O' Connor who ran a fantastic race in the Junior Boys category and achieved a very high standard.
Thanks to Mr Kelly and Mr Haynes as trainers as well as to Mr. Herlihy for driving to and from Waterford and also to Ken Nason for all his assistance throughout the season.
We offer our sincere congratulations to the Senior Maths team of Tomás Ó Mainín, Michal Szarkowicz, Luke Quigley and Josh Burton, (pictured during the competition) on a fantastic performance in the All-Ireland Maths Competition in Maynooth today.
The team finished fourth with a great performance.
To qualify initially was an incredible achievement but to put in such a superb performance makes the entire school community justifiably proud.
We further congratulate Ms Susan O Connell for her huge committment to her students and the school. In commending the students, we also thank their parents for their constant support and encouragement,
Míle buíochas do chách
In wishing the Senior Maths team every success tomorrow, Saturday 10th of February in the All-Ireland Final in NUI Maynooth, we also acknowledge the other students who competed for the school.
Here, we can see, the team that qualified, as they came second in the qualifying round on January 26th. We also recognise the other team that evening who came in at 4th in the competition - a great achievement in itself.
This team comprised of Maxim Chopiskyy, Pól De Barra, Alex Breathnach , Cathal Ó Donnabháin and Ucha Naridashvilli.
Well done to all and best wishes to Ms O Connell and the lads tomorrow.
