Women’s Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour

Piper’s Hill College were one of the few schools in the Country to be chosen to host The Women’s World Cup Trophy Tour.
Our 5th & 6th class girls were invited to the event on Wednesday. They participated in a range of wonderful activities  and got the opportunity to meet Irish Women’s Rugby Team player Jenny Murphy. Thank you to the Staff and Students of Piper’s Hill College for their hospitality and for looking after the girls so well, they thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Chess News

Congratulations to all the pupils who have been taking part in the KEC Chess League matches over the past few months. Special mention to Dylan Bolger, Max Isom, Charlotte Darby and Julia Cardenas, who represented St. David’s at the League Finals held for Kildare schools at St. Brigid’s NS on the 14th of February. Our team won the semi and quarter finals and went on to compete in the final of the Shield Competition. They lost by a narrow margin here but did themselves and their school proud with their performances. Look out for their picture in the Leinster Leader!

This year was our first year to enter the Kildare Primary Debating Festival. This festival is for both 5th and 6th class. There were six of us on the team, myself (Abigail Bolger), Ryan Duffin, Stephen Crowe, Sarah French, Nadia Abdalla and Max Isom.

Our first debate was ‘Why children should NOT be allowed T.V’s in their bedrooms’. Our next debate was ‘Why climate change CAN’T be stopped’. Unfortunately we lost both of these debates but we put our heart and soul into them and really enjoyed them.

We will hopefully be entering this festival again next year.
