‘Natures Palette’ Art Exhibition.

A group of PLC students of Coláiste Mhuire Co-Ed are about to embark on a wonderful artistic adventure. These young talented artists are prepared to take their artwork out of the classroom environment and into the wider community such as L.I.T.Thurles Campus. This art exhibition entitled ‘Natures Palette’ deals with the artists personal interpretation of nature.The P.L.C level 6 invite the 5th year students to participate in this event. These artworks will be grouped together to form a collection of 40 artworks including painting and sculpture. The aim of this exhibition is to provide students with a profound educational experience which will form part of their examinations later this year.

Green Schools

The green schools’ committee has increased their commitment in their quest for their first green flag.  They have purchased green recycling bins which will be put into all classrooms and all social areas.  The support from the rest of the school body has been phenomenal andalready, the amount of recycling has increased exponentially and the amount of waste had reduced dramatically.  The competition to find a slogan for our first green flag is underway.  This slogan will underpin all of the work carried out in relation to litter and waste. The standard of entries is excellent and there will be fantastic prizes for the winner.  We are also looking to create a mascot to accompany the slogan.  So students, let the creativity shine to help our school become a cleaner, greener school.

Trip to Trinity.

Two of our transition year students, Fabian Reese and Lea Seelos, have been selected to attend a Transition Year Physics experience on Nanoscience in Trinity College Dublin.  The students from Coláiste Mhuire Co-ed, Thurles were chosen from a nationwide selection of students. They will participate in exciting lectures, demonstrations and a tour of CRANN, the Trinity Research Institute for Nanotechnology. This is such a wonderful, exciting opportunity for these students as it opens up a whole insight into the cutting edge
world of physics.  Well done on your success.


Our under-15 footballers and under-17 hurlers are in action this week. We play in county competitions on this occasion. Firstly, we play Scoil Ruáin of Killenaule in football in the Corn Peile, and two days later (Thursday) our hurlers play the winners of Cistercian College or Nenagh Vocational School in the second round of the Fitzgerald Shield. This is one of our last outings on the G.A.A. front in what has been a very busy year. Hopefully, we’ll have peaked at the right time for these games!
