Cross Country Championship

ArchBishop Mchale College attended the South Connacht Athletics championship on Wednesday the 29th of January in Loughrea. The school entered minor boys and a minor girls’ team and also a Junior Boys team. It was most of the group’s first time competing in a championship event and they performed admirably, completing the challenging circuit in difficult conditions. The highlight of the day was Adam Egan in the
Junior boys who had a top 25 finish out of a group of 160.IMG_0842 IMG_0843 IMG_0844 IMG_0845 IMG_0846 IMG_0847 IMG_0848 IMG_0850 IMG_0851

Peter Connell Talk 19-03-14

Peter Connell was welcomed as a guest speaker to the TY and Gaisce students on Wednesday the 19th of March. The Killererin native spoke to the group about his enormous achievement in becoming the 33rd Irish man and the first man from Connacht to reach the summit of Mount Everest. He spoke of the preparation, dedication and lifestyle changes that were required to complete his dream. He also told the group about the benefits of goal setting, and the importance of “thinking big”. It was a hugely motivational and inspirational talk and will be hugely beneficial to the Gaisce group as they prepare to complete their expedition after the Easter Break.

Visit to Thermoking Galway: School Business Partnership

Today saw the third phase of this years School Business Partnership where the students had the opportunity to attend the boardroom of Thermoking and be interviewed individually by an interview panel. After the interviews students were invited back to the boardroom to receive feedback from the interviewers.

Since Rose Barrett (HR Manager, Thermoking Galway) attended the school recently for phase two of the programme the students were busy preparing their CVs and preparing for todays interviews.

One student commented:

“I hadn’t fully realised how many different kinds of jobs (and people with different educational backgrounds) would be present in the same organisation. There were people who were experienced veterans in their field and people who’d just got out of college, from Engineering to Business degrees to none at all.”


The group were accompanied by Business teacher Mr. Heneghan and Metalwork teacher Mr. Bilbow.
