High Kings of Leinster

Well done to our magnificent Senior Cross country team who won back to back Leinster titles this week. The defending All-Ireland Champions put in a stunning effort to finish 100 points ahead of their nearest rivals. Well done also to the Intermediate team that secured qualification for the All-Ireland Final. Our First Years were very unlucky to finish fourth, but as Senior Captain Adam O' Brien explained afterwards, they are champions, as they got fit, made friends and did the school proud. Now it's time to turn our attention to the All-Ireland Final in Sligo Racecourse on March 5th where the team will do the school proud.

Total Focus

We'll done to the 220 students that sat Mock Exams recently. The staff of St.Aidan's were deeply impressed by the determination and discipline of the students. All this will pay off in June. Another hurdle crossed.

Dissection Time

This is probably the most memorable part of First Year - dissecting hearts! And ironically, these budding young scientists were preparing the scalpels before our Valentine's readings!

Saints and Scholars

Congratulations to Shaun Ryan and Gavin McQuaid who were recently awarded Academic Scholarships from Dublin City University. Both students scored over 550 points in the Leaving Certificate and received €1,000 each to assist their studies. Our Guidance Counsellor Ms.McGrath was delighted to join the students as they received their Awards in the Helix.
