A New Reading Initiative at The High School
A number of Form 4 pupils volunteered to visit a local care home in Orwell Road to read to the residents there. We all walked from The High School to the residence bringing either books or magazines with us as reading material. When we got there we were introduced to some of the residents in the sitting room. We each found a seat nearby and chatted with our new friends for a while and then we began to read. The home was warm and welcoming, and the nurses were very upbeat and friendly. It was a very moving and worthwhile experience for us all.
LHA Junior League Hockey Final
Last Friday's tremendous hockey result means that our Junior A boys will be heading to the Leinster Schools League Final in the coming weeks. The game against Newpark Comprehensive School ended in a 1-0 win for The High School courtesy of a goal scored by Harry Lynch. Well done to our terrific players who gave it their all once again. We are looking forward to a thrilling league final when The High School play our old adversaries St Andrew's College on Wednesday 1 March in Wesley College beginning at 3.00 pm. All support is most welcome.
