    Coláiste Chríost Rí - County Basketball Champions

    Coláiste Chríost Rí are County Under 19 Basketball Champions.

    Following a four year wait, we are delighted to congratulate the players and mentors for this fantastic achievement.

    In a thrilling match they beat Bantry by a score of 59-45. A great achievement bearing in mind that our opponents hadn't lost a match in 15 months. A fantastic team performance with Fiachra Cronin scoring 24 points, Sean Foley 17, Craig Sweeney 11 and Luke Horgan 7. Well done we are extremely proud. 

    Particular thanks to Ms Deborah Hennessy as well as Mr Aris Pyrowolakis for their incredible committment and dedication.

    A really proud day for the school!!

    Dr Aidan Quinn of the Tyndall Institute addresses the students

    On Friday last, and just ahead of Science week, Dr Aidan Quinn of the Tyndall Institute in Cork addressed the Fifth and Sixth Year Chemistry students in our Library . He gave a lecture and demonstration on Nanotechnology. It was a great occasion and the students learned first hand about the areas of  both Microchip and nanotechnology. Dr Quinn would be well known to some of the students as a member of Nemo Rangers and that, added to the fact thae we have always had a great working relationship with the Tyndall Institute resulted in a very enjoyable day in the school. Our thanks here to Ms Joy Callanan and Ms Aoife O Donovan, Science teachers for organising the event.

    Two County Cups in Chríost Rí

     

    Its been a great year for the  St Finbarrs footballers, as well as the Imokilly hurlers, as both teams won the Cork County Championships this year.

    It also provided a unique opportunity for two teachers in Coláiste Chríost Rí. No sooner had John Cronin starred for Imokilly in their hurling title win than Jamie Burns was part of a Barrs team that won their first football county for almost thirty- five years.

    The school was proud recently to have both trophies on site. It’s truly unique to have two teachers in the school with counties on the table in both codes in one year.

    Pictured here are Jamie Burns (St Finbarrs Football Champions) Mr Daithi Ó hAodha (Deputy Principal , Coláiste Chríost Rí ) and John Cronin (Imokilly Hurling Champions)

    The Amber Flag in Coláiste Chríost Rí

     

    96FM Interview Students on the importance of positive mental health promotion.
     
    It was a pleasure to have Corks 96Fm's senior news reporter Fiona Corcoran in the school yesterday to speak to students about mental health. Students from Chríost Rí were selected to speak about this topic as we were one of the 'Amber Flag' founding schools. The Amber Flag is awarded by Pieta House to schools who have gone above and beyond  in promoting positive mental health within the school community.
     
    Fiona spoke with Ms O Shea about the schools history with the Amber Flag, the importance of it and our plans for future events. She interviewed students about their involvement in speaking about positive mental health with their peers and the various activities in the school they have been part of throughout the years. These interviews will be broadcast as part of the news bulletins over the coming days so tune in!
     
    Mr. Frank Mulvihill, a former staff member and Guidance Counsellor was the driving force in setting up, this now nation-wide initiative for schools. Ms. O' Shea has now taken over as the schools Amber Flag co-ordinator and we have successfully retained the Amber Flag for 3 consecutive years! We look forward to getting even more students on board and making this year the biggest yet in terms of mental health promotion! 
     
    In previous years we have participated in the Pieta House 'Darkness into Light' Walk. We have had some fantastic guest speakers in to talk about mental health, wellbeing and resilience, including Elma Walsh of the 'Donal Walsh Live Life Foundation', Liam Doocey of Cork Youth Health Services and Johnny Holland, Nutritionist and former Munster Rugby player (and a past pupil also!). We have also ran poster competitions, produced a music video, organised a healthy schools week and continue with our extremely successful mentoring programme between 5th year and 1st year students.

    Three Amigos!!!

    Our recent Information Evening provided a unique photo-opportunity.

    Professor Pat O Shea, President of UCC addressed the assembly. 

    Professor O Shea, as a past pupil would know the area well and  had cycled to the event, and was completely kitted out to cycle off again before stopping for  a photograph with the school Principal , Pardaig Mac an Rí as well as Deputy Principal, Daithí O hAodha.

    This also provides a good opportunity to welcome Padraig, who had been on the school staff since 2001.

    The entire school community wishes him well as we go forward into a very bright future,

    Kevin Foley
