Past and present pupils honoured by school for their national call-up
The athletic talents of two of CBS The Green's former and present pupils were honoured this past week as Kieran Donaghy and current sixth year student Ryan Leonard were both congratulated by the school after the pair received the call up to the Irish Senior Men's Basketball Team.
The pair were presented with two framed 16 x 20 pictures of mementos of their time in the school by Principal Ann O' Callaghan and Deputy Principal Robert Flaherty and there was a wonderful atmosphere in the school grounds on the day as the teachers spoke of the shared passion that both Ryan and Kieran have for the sport of basketball.
This was just another busy week in the school year for staff and pupils it seems though as members of the 5th Year LCVP class recently returned from a trip to the Skelligs Chocolate Factory back in West Kerry as part of the Enterprise and Work studies.
The group learned a lot about the chocolate business, entrepreneurship and how best to manage a business; students are now currently in the process of writing up a report on their trip for use in their business work portfolios.
