Deele Notes 20-11-13

It was yet another busy week in Deele College, with many of the school’s teams in action this week.
On Monday, the school’s u-17 soccer team were very unlucky, going down 2-1 against a very strong Carndonagh side in the National U-17 Cup.

On Tuesday, the u-15 Girls’ team had a comfortable victory over Finn Valley, while the boys’ u-15 team were in cup action against Buncrana on Wednesday and after an action packed 90 minutes emerged victorious with a final score of 7 – 5.

The school organised a very successful ‘Proverb Competition’, which raised €680 for the school tour fund. The winners of the competition were; 1st: Niamh Lynch, St Johnston. 2nd: Yvonne Hanson, Cranford. 3rd: Gavin Meehan, Raphoe.

We would like to Congratulate Tianna Ward, Ellen Boyle, Nicole Harper, Conor Jordan, Fionnuala Allan, Kelly-Ann Brogan and Niamh Porter  for their recent achievements in the Pope John Paul II Awards.

These students have worked tirelessly over the past two years, volunteering in their local community and school community. Well done to all the students for their hard work and their award.

Congratulations also to Cora Higgins, who was the recipient of a prize during the LYIT Open Day, last week.

The school hosted a very successful nutrition and cookery class last week for parents and guardians. This class gave parents an opportunity to see what foods were essential for students studying for exams and those looking to lead healthy lifestyles.
