German Dept Spelling Bee

The German Department held its first Spelling Bee recently, and with fantastic Borussia Dortmund themed prizes up for grabs, there was great excitement for the event. The competition was based on the boys' vocab from Year 9 & 10 to date. Each round had ten words called out, to be spelled correctly. After ten rounds, Oliver Hughes Jordan (10O) proved to be the Deutschmeister, with an unbelievable score of 100 out of 100 - wunderbar! Mind you, Dara McKenna (10P) was just a single point behind with 99/100!! He is blaming Herr Rasdale for mispronouncing the word 'geduldig'!!! Cahal Rafferty was in third with a similarly outstanding score of 96/100. Absolut klasse, Jungs! Sportliche Oliver won a

After eight weeks of challenges and nerve-wracking moments I had managed to progress to the final of the Big Spell. I had watched as two competitors were eliminated after the second challenge each week and I had escaped elimination twice from the second challenge myself. The competition had been whittled down to six competitors, four boys and two girls. On the final day, the first of three challenges was “Speed Spell.” I progressed with a score of nine and one competitor was eliminated. Five people now remained to participate in “Letter by Letter.” Slipping up on just one letter meant being eliminated from that round. The four winners of the round progressed to the “Ultimate Spelling Bee.” U

Continued Success For The Dalton Team

St Michael’s 5 – 9 St Mary’s 2 – 7 St Michaels continued their impressive run in the Dalton Cup campaign with a good win over St. Mary’s Magherafelt. The match was played in ideal conditions on the artificial surface at Garvaghey. However, don’t be fooled by this score line, indeed the outcome of this match was in the balance until five minutes from the end. It was St Mary’s who had the blistering start and raced into an early lead when they scored two well worked goals in the first seven minutes. However, St Michaels grew into the game and got a lucky break when Cormac McCauley was in the right place to collect a long shot that came off the post and crash the ball to the net. At this

P.7 enjoyed a fantastic day in the Science labs and Technology suite at St. Michael’s recently. Mr Mc Govern and Mrs O’ Neill enthused the P.7 pupils in the Chemistry Lab and they were ably assisted by the technicians, Damien and Michael. The P7 pupils made their own glue using milk and a selection of bases. Back at school the pupils tested their glues to find out which glue was the strongest. After their morning in the Chemistry department, the P.7’s headed to the Technology suite where Mr Mc Barron and Mrs Donnelly introduced the pupils to the idea of strength in structures. The pupils were split into teams and they worked together to make the strongest bridge using lollipop sticks and gl

Winning Start To The Dalton Cup Campaign

St Michael’s 9 – 11 St Macartan’s 1 – 8 St Michaels got their Dalton Cup campaign off to an impressive winning start today over St. Macartan’s Monaghan. The match was played at a rainy Smithborough but the St Michael’s boys coped much better with the conditions to go in at half-time leading 3 – 5 to 1 – 4. The St Michael’s goals coming from Justin McDade, Connor McGovern and the nippy Diarmaid King. The Monaghan goal coming as a result of a penalty after Oisin Seaney in the St Michael’s goal was judged to have pulled down the Monaghan forward. It was during the first fifteen minutes of the second half that St Michael’s started to get the scores their dominance deserved. Goals from Dia
