Congratulations to all the Transition Year Students from Rice College and the Sacred Heart school on a fantastic collaborative production of ‘Popstars the 90s Musical’. Four weeks of hard graft came to a spectacular end with a series of matinee and evening performances. Well done to all involved. A special thank you to TY coordinators Mr. Martin Gill and Ms. Margaret Donnelly for all their leadership and praise throughout the rehearsals. The following is a smorgasbord of snaps from the show courtesy of our in-house photographer, TJ Hughes.
Rice College defeated St. Muredach’s, Ballina in Round 1 of the Junior A League on a 1-10 to 0-12 scoreline at the G.A.A. Grounds, Westport. Well done to all involved. Thanks to TJ Hughes for the photos from the match.
A few pics from the 1st Year Hurling Blitz played recently in Ballyvary. Rice College boys were most impressive. Well done to their Managers Ms, Sandra Hall and Ms. Niamh Hoban.
The official opening of the Rice College Astro Turf pitch took place on the 15th September 2015. Representatives from Westport Town Council and Michael Ring, TD, took the opportunity to thank all who participated in getting the Astro turf from the planning stages to completion. It is a fantastic amenity to have, not just for the school but also the wider community of Westport. Thanks to all who helped in any way. I’m sure it will be enjoyed by many a generation to come.
