2nd yr. Maths class

Adaptemy is an on-line assessment and learning platform, covering all topics on the both the Junior and Leaving cert. Maths syllabus. Rice College are one of the participating pilot schools using the programme. Ms. Grimes’s 2nd yr. Maths class have been using the programme for one class period per week since September.

It is working extremely well as a revision tool. It assesses each individual and continuously adapts the level of questioning to the individual. It ensures the student is challenged at all times.

Reports can be compiled showing the progress of the students on each topic.

The following students were the most productive workers and achieved the highest results using the programme over the past number of weeks.

Well done boys – keep up the good work.

Congratulations to Aaron McDermott and Jack Hanley who won the 60 x 30 Boys Intermediate Doubles Connacht Colleges Championship. This was a tremendous accolade for the lads who progressed to the All Ireland Semi Final in Williamstown, Co. Galway. Unfortunately, it didn’t go their way but they can be extremely proud of their overall achievements. Here is a couple of pics of the lads getting ready for action.

U17 Soccer Vs Sligo Grammar

The soccer season is upon us and it started in great fashion with a 3-0 win over Sligo Grammar. Paul Doyle scored two brilliant goals, the first a Messi-esque solo run and the second a classic chip over the onrushing goalkeeper. Cathal Chambers got a vital touch from an in-swinging corner to give the scoreline a more polished look. There were a number of excellent performances but special mention must go out to Paul Lambert for his explosive running,  Mikey O’ Brien for commanding the midfield and Paul Doyle for being at the hub of everything good for Rice. Well done lads, keep it up.
