Mulroy College Staff and Students had an enjoyable week of sporting activity to mark the European Week of Sport 2016. A week long itinerary of events ensured that the school community were active through out the week as they participated in basketball, skipping, badminton and football. Students in the school community also participated in a ‘Drop Everything and Jog’ initiative where they all completed 1k as part of their school day. The week concluded on a beautiful Saturday morning with the school’s 10k and fun 5k. Well done to all participants and helpers on the day in ensuring that it was a great success.

A very successful student book swap was held on the 10th of May, during lunchtime in the college courtyard.
The event was organised by Ms. Selina Bonner and Ms. Scátha Farrell. Students donated novels, biographies, magazines and annuals that they no longer wanted.
During the Book Swap they swapped these for “new” books to enjoy over their summer holidays!
The fantastic weather allowed us to hold this event outdoors in Ms. McKelvey’s beautiful school garden and Ms. Mc Ateer’s scrumptious buns, wraps and garlic bread magically disappeared! All students got a sweet treat, thanks to Ms. Dormion- Merci!
Raffle prizes were very kindly sponsored by Bodyworx Gym, Milford and Emmet and staff in the canteen. There was particular excitement over the “Skip the Queue on Chip Day” voucher.
Staff of the college also held their own book swap in the staff room with all literary tastes catered for.
Thanks again to all staff, students and sponsors for their books and participation on the day.
Murloy College Transition Year students Dylan Mc Bride and Conor Bradley had great success in the Scifest STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) competition in Letterkenny Insititute of Technology. Not only did they win the Life Science Award for the Senior / Intermediate category, they also scooped The Science Foundation of Ireland Best Project Award. Their project involved the incubation of chicks to investigate if a chicken’s breed affects the hatch rate and fertility of the chicks. It is known that all birds have different incubation periods for egg hatching.
They will now work on the project and will participate in a national final competition on 11 November 2016. Participants in the national final will compete for the SciFest 2016 Grand Award. This award consists of a trophy and an all-expenses-paid trip for the winning student(s) and their mentor to represent Ireland at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Los Angeles, California in May 2017.
