Comeragh College students raised funds for international humanitarian aid agency GOAL by swapping their school uniforms for their favourite sports team colours for a day.

Team strips representing counties Tipperary, Kilkenny and Waterford were well represented in the school for Jersey Day.

Meanwhile, the school’s sixth year students received some timely advice on study skills.

The half day course, run by Student Enrichment Services, was provided by Comeragh College for all its Leaving Cert students and covered such topics as goal setting, exam techniques, note making styles and revision timetables.

There was success on the sports field for Comeragh College Junior Footballers, who achieved a very well deserved 5-10 to 3-5 win over Castleisland from Kerry.

The team were losing at half time but a very good second half team performance saw Comeragh College win a much closer game than the final scoreline suggests.

Well done to all the team and subs on a great performance and great behaviour over the day.

Students from Comeragh College exhibited their work in the annual Iverk Show again this year and were rewarded with prizes in several areas.

Jack Murphy won second prize in the Metalwork Junior Category; Dymitro Batishchev won first prize in the Painting Junior Category with Shaun Regan claiming second prize.

There was another 1st prize for Teresa Brown in the Craft Miscellaneous Category with Lee Roche picking up the 2nd prize. In Clay Modelling, 2nd prize went to Hayley Cloona and 3rd prize to Hayley Walsh.
