School Notes 12/12/2019

BVS Equestrian Club: Best of luck to the BVS equestrian students who will be competing in Mullingar Equestrian Centre this Sunday. This is the first outing for the team and we wish them every success in their group and individual rounds. Team members include Lily Higgins, Cherise Clyne, Heulwen Dawson Stanley, Rachel Flanagan and Leah Carberry.

North Leinster Success for BVS: On Friday last BVS played Mercy Ballymahon in the first round group game of the North Leinster Championship. Both teams played a fast and exciting game. BVS came out on top and now play Mercy Kilbeggan this coming Monday. Well done to the coaches and the panel. BVS Abú!

Leaving Certificate students visit the Faculty of Engineering and Informatics: Students from Ballymahon Vocational School recently attended special Leaving Certificate workshops in Athlone Institute of Technology’s Faculty of Engineering and Informatics. The workshops, which ran for two days, focused on specialist subject areas like Engineering Technology and Construction Studies and were designed to support students in their preparation for Leaving Certificate exams. Over the course of the programme, each group of students attended workshops consisting of a series of lectures and laboratory demonstrations. Those interested in Construction Studies attended workshops in Building Information Modelling, Water Quality, Hydraulics, U Values and Concrete Testing, while students interested in Engineering Technology covered areas like Polymer Physics, Automation and Control and Polymer Processing. The workshops provided were delivered by lecturing staff of the Faculty of Engineering and Informatics, each of whom has significant lecturing and research expertise in their respective domains, with the ambition of supporting teacher and students as they prepare for Leaving Certificate examinations. Thanks to Mr. Crossan and Mr. Nolan for making such a beneficial and informative day possible.

“The Greatest Show @BVS: Last minute preparations are well underway for our musical extravaganza which kicks off on Thursday, 12th December with a matinee performance for our local 5th and 6th class primary schools. Nightly performances featuring a stellar cast take place at 8pm on Thursday and Friday night, 12th and 13th of December. Tickets selling fast!

North Leinster ‘D’ Champions: Congratulation to our 2nd Year football team who were crowned North Leinster ‘D’ champions last Tuesday. The team played very well to defeat Beaufort College, Navan on a scoreline of 4-8 to 0-8.  The match was played in very difficult conditions and the players showed tremendous skill to take control of the game from the outset. It was testament to their tenacity and concentration that the BVS lads managed to prevent their opponents scoring a goal. We now march onto a Leinster semi-final after the Christmas holidays. We wish the team the very best of luck in the next round.
