Access to Testing Feedback for Academic Monitoring

All 5th and 6th year daltaí are in the process of receiving feedback from the testing they completed at the beginning of 5th year. Our Guidance Councillors are giving each daltaí an individual student report which gives an explanation of their results and where their strengths and weaknesses lie. The report not only promotes self-reflection, but provides daltaí with ideas for maximising their learning preferences.

We are also now offering digital copies of the parent reports to the tuismitheoirí of all daltaí (1st – 6th year). If you would like a copy of your child’s report please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . This is designed to help parents understand their child’s results and what actions they can take to further their learning. The report can be used as an effective tool for reinforcing school-based learning activities at home.

Successful Start for Volleyball in CNI!

Idirbliain Dáltaí Complete Hell and Back

73 brave dáltaí and four múinteoirí travelled to Kilruddery Estate in Bray to complete the full eight kilometre Hell and Back course at the start of October. The gruelling course included a host of notorious obstacles, including ice water baths, high walls, steep climbs, crossing a lake, sinking into a marsh and the infamous electric shocks. The dáltaí fully bought into the Hell and Back credo that no one is left behind, assisting each other in the completion of this endurance challenge. While many regretted their participation during the event, the feedback was overwhelmingly positive on the bus journey home.
