Congratulations to Form VI pupils Hughie Casey, Gabriel Murphy and John-Jack Beglan O’Connell who were presented with Leadership Awards at an assembly yesterday. Hughie and Gabriel coordinated an amazing Movember fundraising campaign over the past five weeks, helping to raise over €5000 and awareness for men’s mental and physical health. The boys set themselves a series of challenges including an inter-house football tournament, chilli eating contests, ice-cold swims and a mammoth 60km run undertaken by John-Jack over a single day – the 60km representing the 60 men who die by suicide each hour around the globe. Congratulations to the boys for their fine achievements and for galvanising the school around their campaign.
