Collins, had a unanimous win last Monday night (Jan 26th) in Cobh against Colaiste Muire. The motion “Ireland’s commitment to climate change is a load of hot air” was defeated by BGS. Well done and fingers crossed that the league points will take the team to the Knock Out stages.

At our School Assembly this past Tuesday our entrants to this year’s BT Young Scientist project were congratulated for all their hard work.

Bandon Grammar had 16 projects that made it to the RDS this year which was the third highest by any school in the country.

The Projects can be viewed by clicking on the link here.

Over the course of the competition our students showed themselves to be well prepared, interesting and had many visitors to each of their projects including some celebrities in the form of Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin, Michael Martin, Joan Burton, Gordon Darcy and many more.

We had two projects which were highly commended: Caoimhe Sanchez, Georgie Roche & Clare O’Mahoney  for their project ‘The Power of Music’ and Ben O’Regan’s project ‘Using twitter sentiment analysis to determine the happiest county.’

We had one prize winner which was Harry Sweetnam and Kevin Deane who earned second place in the Junior group biological and ecological sciences, a fantastic achievement.

Well done to all involved, our students who were superb ambassadors for the school, their mentor teachers; Mrs. McCarthy, Mr. Buckley, Ms. McGrath and Dr. Flynn and to Mrs. McCarthy, Mr. Buckley and Mr. Crowley who accompanied the group on the 3 night trip to Dublin as well as Mr. Coombes & Dr. Flynn who accompanied the bus load of students who went to the RDS on Friday.

ASTI Official Strike Action

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(S),

The ASTI has informed the Board of Management that all ASTI members have been directed to take strike action on Thursday 22nd January. Pickets will be placed on all schools, colleges and education centres where ASTI members are employed on that day.

In the case of the strike going ahead on the 22nd of January the Board of Management will not be in a position to provide standard tuition or supervision for day pupils whose parents have been asked to keep them at home.

In these circumstances boarders who are unable to return home for the day will be accommodated on the same basis as a weekend stay. Normal leave out and report back arrangements apply. No tuition will be provided.

The Board of Management regrets that this course of action is necessary as it has no wish to interrupt the education of students in this school.

Yours Sincerely,


Chairperson of the Board of Management
