One More Round…

…of golf and other end-of-term Junior School News:  The annual Junior School Golf outing in Stepaside resulted in defending champion Matthew McKeown sharing the cup this year with up-and-coming 3rd Former Charlie Kennedy. Louis McGovern came second and Trevor Bolger came third.  Also receiving accolades were our Irish Board of Speech and Drama Gold Medal winners.  Louis Grinnell received a gold medal for the 3rd year running which is an incredible achievement. Turlough Dineen from 4th Form, Jody Grace and Charlie Kennedy from 3rd Form and Declan de La Cruz Moylan from 1st Form were the other winners.  Conlethians seem prone to speech and drama naturally but it does take a good bit of work to earn gold!  As competitive but ore co-operative was the Junior School Table Quiz:  The winning team had a surprisingly comfortable victory in the annual end of year brain teaser competition, remaining calm and composed all the way through even as the teachers shared puzzled looks after some of the questions. How many Premiership matches did Leicester City lose all season? These boys certainly knew.   Last but not least, there are some pics from a new avenue of endeavour for Junior Conlethians this year: a specially organised GAA module with the Ranelagh Gaels.  The boys and girls took to it as enthusiastically as they took to rugby, swimming, fencing, art, spelling, athletics, soccer, tennis, chess, choir, French, debating, sailing… and a bit of book-learning in between!  Enjoy the summer but do get some rest and come back in September, ready for some more St. Conleth’s Junior School Fun!
