The Irish Tricolour

This year Sean, Darren and Oscar and their History teacher Ms. A Brennan were honoured to represent St. Aidan’s C.B.S. at a flag presentation ceremony in Waterford by the Thomas Francis Meagher Foundation. Their aim was to promote the ideals of the flag.

We were thrilled that the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins had given us this opportunity. On the 14th March his wife Sabina joined us in Waterford. The Irish Tricolour was raised for the very first time at 33 The Mall, Waterford City on 7th March 1848 by the Irish and American Patriot, Thomas Francis Meagher. His words were truly inspiring......He reminded us that “We remain indebted to this man who, in 1848, called for “a lasting truce between Orange and Green” to become the enduring symbol of the Irish Nation. This is indeed a vision worth championing, a message of peace we must continue to cherish.' The flag that we received that day has also been flown from the 33 The Mall in Waterford. This very special Tricolour was presented to Mr Harrington by Oscar at the school’s Awards ceremony.

Karate Kid

Matthew Martin, Ireland’s karate squad member of Larkhill Karate Club. Matthew has had a busy few months, having represented Ireland at the Belgian open in November 2014, taking bronze in the Irish National championships in March and representing Ireland at the Scottish International in April where he took silver in a very tough category. He is doing extremely well considering he has been training less than usual to concentrate on his studies. Matthew will represent Ireland in the Budapest Karate International in September 2015 and again in Belgium in November 2015 as well as home competitions. Best of luck Matthew in September.

1st Year Building History Project

Once again our first year History students put on a very impressive display of their History projects. The theme was 'Buildings throughout History'. Their work was exhibited in April in the School Hall, much to the admiration of the older students  and their teachers. They have graciously donated their work to the History Room, which no doubt will be an inspiration for future budding historians! ( Ms. A Brennan)
