Mount Temple Pupils play on Direct Provision: performance in University College Galway.

On the 18th of December, Mount Temple students were invited to put on their play ‘Eire: Land of 100,000 Welcomes’ in the O’Donoghue Theatre in Galway University. The students played to a full house made up of students, academics, people in direct provision and the public. There was a short question and answer session with the director, Laura Doak and the cast after the performance. In January, the cast were presented with a certificate from the university.

Junior Boys Rugby beat Clongowes win Junior League 2017

Congratulations to the Junior Boys Rugby team who yesterday beat Clongowes 17-8 to become 2017 Junior League Champions. Mr Buckley’s warriors overcame tough opponents in a tight game but with some brilliant performances by key players across the park they pulled away in the last ten minutes to open up a two score lead. It could have been even more but for brilliant last ditch tackling by the Clongowes 15. At the end of the day Mount Temple deserved their win and lifted the trophy at the end of a brilliant campaign.

Situation after midterm

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

 

ASTI withdrawal from Supervision and Substitution

 

As you are aware from the media, the ASTI has directed its members to withdraw from supervision and substitution duties with effect from 7th November 2016. This follows the repudiation by ASTI members of the Lansdowne Road Agreement.

 

Health and Safety legislation and the in loco parentis principle place a duty of care on school management to ensure the safety, health and welfare of pupils.  The Board of Management wishes to keep the school open if at all possible.  To this end school management have assessed the supervision and substitution needs of the school and have put in place arrangements for the provision of supervision of pupils.

As of our understanding of the current situation today, 28th October, we have decided that we will be open for all students on Monday 7th November – unless you are notified otherwise in the interim.

The Board of Management wish to assure you that it will continue to make every effort to provide education and care for our pupils and values your support in this endeavour.

Senior Rugby Team pre-season training at Aspire Centre.

On the 9th of September Mr. Bunting, Brian Smyth and Mark Sutton (Senior team coaches) brought 24 members of the Senior Rugby Team on a pre-season training camp down to the Aspire Centre in Co. Offaly. The agenda for the players was to spend a weekend together building team spirit while honing their rugby skills before their first match against Blackrock due for the following Wednesday. Great craic was had in the various activities (such as “the blind hike”, raft-building, obstacle course and human foosball, amongst many others), but the players also got to do some more serious work such as their gym and pitch sessions throughout the weekend. Joe and the staff down at Aspire were very impressed with the attitude and application of the Mount Temple lads and wished them all the best with the upcoming season.
