Ciarán cruises to victory

Congratulations to all our Minor and Junior athletes that took part in Friday's North Leinster cross country championships. With 51 schools registered and 1,200 athletes going to the line, this was sure to be a dogfight. And a dogfight is just what the St. Aidan's athletes love. 
Ciarán McManus timed it perfectly to win the Minor Race, helping his team to 2nd overall. Dan Lacey, following in his Family's fine athletic tradition in the school, led the Junior team home in 3rd place. 
So next up is the Leinster Finals on Feb 11th where we will have 4 teams running. Good luck to all and well done.

Seniors reach the Summit

 

Today was a historic day for our Senior Footballers. The majority of these mighty men have stood shoulder to shoulder for the past 5 years and today they found themselves in the promised land. This was the school's first Senior 'A' title in 43 years. When one thinks of the greats that never got their hands on this cup, Tom Brady, Joey Boland,  Paul Clarke, Mark Kinsella to name but a few, it puts this achievement into perspective. 
The final scoreboard read 2.16 - 2.06 against an impressive Maynooth side that was going for a hat trick of Senior 'A' titles. This was a fitting destination for a remarkable journey. The team suffered heartbreak last year in the All-Ireland Final, but like all great sportsmen and all great students, they learned, regrouped and reloaded the rockets. We are deeply proud of you, your  coaches and your clubs. Well done!

Stop Animation

Transition years enjoy a variety of new experiences during the year. One of these is Stop Animation in Art where students design a story board and model figures in plasticine. They then go to the computer room to make their Stop Animation piece and add music to it. We have some budding animators in Transition Year.
