U19 Girls -North East Regional Champions and Bronze All Ireland Medalists

In an excellent display of talent, resilience, and determination, the U19 Girls Basketball team won the North East Regional Cup and secured their place in the All Ireland Playoffs

After a comfortable victory in the Quarter Final, their resilience was put to the test in the Semi Final, where they narrowly missed out on a place in the final, falling short by three points. Despite the close defeat, the team's achievement of winning a bronze All Ireland Medal at the National Basketball Arena in Dublin stands as a fantastic accomplishment. This achievement is a testament to the team's exceptional hard work, dedication, and drive that they consistently demonstrated throughout the season.

A special commendation is for the team's captain, Laura McFarland, whose exceptional leadership qualities have been a guiding force for her teammates. Laura’s ability to inspire and motivate, coupled with outstanding talent on the court, has undoubtedly contributed to the team's success this season.

Well done to each and every player on the squad – Niamh McCarville, Mollie Beggan (3rd Year), Karyn McGinn, Fausta Peciulyte, Dearbhla Quigley, Cliodhna Greenan (4th Year), Amy Jo Kierans, Rebecca Brady and Katie McDonald (5th Year). Finally, a heartfelt salute to our Leaving Cert players, Laura McFarland, Dearbhla Smyth, Eabha Quigley, and Mairead Cusack, who have shown unwavering dedication to school basketball throughout their six years at Largy College. As they embark on the next chapter of their lives, they will undoubtedly be missed on the court next season.

Largy College 1st Year Students exhibit 34 innovative science projects at SciFest@School 2024

SciFest@School is where a second-level school hosts their own in-house SciFest science fair. 84 students from 1st Year exhibited 34 projects in SciFest@School in Largy College. This was the school’s 1st SciFest@School and it was a big success. Students demonstrated their knowledge of science, technology, engineering and maths through their creative and innovative ideas and the projects generated plenty of interest on the day from the judges.

Sheila Porter, Founder and CEO of SciFest commented: “Since SciFest@School was launched nationwide in 2011 it has gone from strength to strength. I am continually amazed by the passion and dedication demonstrated by the students. SciFest@School is a celebration of STEM subjects. It encourages students to push the boundaries of the classroom, use their knowledge of science, investigate and be creative in their projects. The achievement of these students is an inspiration to us all and is a tribute to them and to the hard work and support of their teachers.”

Two of Scifest’s most internationally successful alumni were pupils from Largy College. Louis Madden was the Scifest STEM champion 2015 and represented Ireland at Intel ISEF 2016 in Arizona where he won 2 major awards. In 2019 Ruth Madden was the THEA award winner at the Scifest National Final and then went on to win a top Gold award at the Hong Kong GYSTB 2020. In 2022 Dara Courtney, Sean Clerkin and Joshua Brandon won the ‘ESERO Discover Space Award’, ‘Scifest  Runner-Up Best Project Award’ in Dundalk I.T and a STEM award in the National Final when they were in 1st year. We certainly hope that this scifest@school event will encourage our next Scifest champions!

Largy College has paid tribute to students Dlava Mohamed and Kiea McCann.

Dlava Mohamed

Dlava was a student who would always have a warm smile and a gentle hello when she met you on the school corridor. Dlava's determination shone through in everything she did. She was hard working and resilient. She had settled in so well to the Clones area and the Largy College community and was an integral part of our Third Year group.

Dlava was a very moral young girl who had a strong sense of right and wrong and the courage of her convictions to express these.

Dlava was a gorgeous soul who radiated goodness. She expressed such love and devotion to her beloved family. Dlava showed great loyalty and compassion to her circle of friends and was someone they could rely on as a true confidant.

Dlava would have been going into Transition Year in September and was looking forward with excitement to all that was involved in this.

The Largy College school community is devastated by the tragic realisation that we will never witness the incredible potential of the amazing young woman she was destined to become, given her kind spirit and abundance of promise. May she Rest in Peace. 

 Dlava Mohamed
 

Kiea McCann

Kiea was frequently described as simply a lovely student to teach. Throughout her years attending Largy College she was always pleasant and courteous to her teachers and fellow students.

Kiea was a friendly, kind and warm-hearted girl, who always demonstrated a willingness to support others. She was never afraid to give up her time to help her peers. This innate loyalty made her a very popular classmate.

Kiea was a hardworking student and always worked to the best of her ability. She had a caring nature and possessed a love for children Kiea held family in the highest regard; she was a deeply family-oriented girl, adored by everyone. Kiea was looking forward to embarking on third level studies in Childcare at Cavan Institute, having completed her work experience in a local creche.

The Largy College school community is heartbroken by the loss of Kiea, a lovely girl with immense potential and zest for life. It is truly heartbreaking that she will never get to see her dreams come true. The sadness is profound and deeply felt. May she Rest in Peace.

Largy College will open a book of condolences for Keia and Dlava on Friday 04 August at the school from 9am - 1pm.

Kiea McCann 

Our school community is in mourning. We extend our deepest sympathies to the families of Kia and Dlava, and they will remain in our thoughts and prayers in the weeks ahead.

By way of additional support and services please note the variety of support services available to you and your family.

Please see an update below in respect of the School Transport Scheme, which contains important information on closing dates and temporary closure of the Bus Éireann Family Portal.

 

Information for families regarding School Transport Payment

Process for 2023/24 School Year

Payments/Medical Card Details

Payment/child’s medical card details for all pupils who wish to be considered for the allocation of a ticket for the 2023/24 school year must be submitted before 9 June 2023 On buseireann.ie/schooltransport.  After this date, this will be a late payment and tickets are not guaranteed to eligible pupils. 

 

Bus Éireann Family Portal Closure

Please note the Bus Éireann family portal will close for all applications and payments for a period of 3 weeks from 9 June 2023 to 30 June 2023 and it will not be possible to make a late application, or make a delayed payment or delayed entry of medical card details until the family portal reopens.

This is necessary so that Bus Éireann can process applications, arrange transport and to assess all applications and determine whether they are eligible or concessionary and to include Temporary Alleviation Measures (TAMS) as soon as possible for the 2023/24 school year. Bus Éireann plans to issue all eligible tickets from July.

Tickets will be issued to eligible students who have applied and paid/entered medical card details on time. After this allocation is complete, where seats are available, concessionary tickets will be issued.

Any application made after 28 April 2023, or any payment/medical card details submitted after 9 June 2023 will be late. Where this happens, eligible students are not guaranteed a ticket.

Bus Éireann has put in place a dedicated customer care call centre and a Contact Form on buseireann.ie/schooltransport to assist families specifically with School Transport queries during the busy summer period. Families that have queries can contact the call centre on: LoCall 0818 919 910. Operating hours are 09.00 – 17.00 Monday to Friday

If families have queries relating to transport for children with special educational needs) please contact School Transport Section, Department of Education at:

Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Phone: 057 9325469 or 057 9325466

Payments/Medical Cards

It is important to ensure that payments/child’s medical card details are submitted for new applicants and also for pupils who have previously applied/availed of school transport and require a seat on a service for the 23/24 school year.

Children (who are eligible for school transport) with valid medical cards (GMS Scheme) are exempt from paying the annual charge, however their medical card details must be submitted before 9 June 2023.

Families are strongly urged to make sure that they pay/enter child’s medical card details on time. Late applications made after 28th April 2023, or late payment after 9 June 2023 may mean that a ticket is not available.

To make your payment or enter your child's medical card details, go to buseireann.ie/schooltransport by Friday 9 June.

The Annual Charge for School Transport Services for the 2023/24 school year is set out below:

Category of pupil

Annual Charge

Primary Eligible/ Concessionary pupil

€50

Post primary Eligible/ Concessionary pupil  

€75

Maximum annual charge for families

€125

Eligibility

Children are eligible for transport at primary level where they reside not less than 3.2 kilometres from and are attending their nearest national school, and at post-primary level where they reside not less than 4.8 kilometres from and are attending their nearest post-primary school/education centre as determined by the Department/Bus Éireann, having regard to ethos and language.

  • Children who are eligible for school transport and who have completed the application and payment process on time will be accommodated on school transport services where such services are in operation.
  • Children who are not eligible for school transport, but who complete the application and payment process on time, will be considered for spare seats that may exist after eligible children have been facilitated; such seats are referred to as concessionary seats.
  • Because of the nature of concessionary transport for non-eligible children and the priority of providing places for eligible children, there may be an excess of demand over supply for concessionary places, in these cases Bus Éireann will allocate tickets for spare seats using an agreed selection process.
  • In addition, temporary alleviation measures will continue for the 2023/24 school year, pending completion of the school transport scheme review and this means that transport will be provided, where such services are in operation, for post-primary pupils who are eligible for transport to their nearest school and are attending their second nearest school/ post-primary centre and who apply and pay on time.

Pupils from Ukraine

Pupils from Ukraine who require school transport should not apply on the Bus Éireann family portal but should visit gov.ie/ukraine for details on how to apply. Please note that any pupils from Ukraine who are currently on school transport do not need to re-apply for the 2023/24 school year unless they have changed address or school.

Congratulations to 2nd year students, Dara Courtney, Sean Clerkin & Joshua Brandon who received their excellence in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Award for their project “A Four Seasons Photovoltaic Self-Charging Rover – the Mars PSR”. The project generated plenty of interest on the day from the judges, the general public and Richard Bruton, TD. 

The students have been working on the Mars PSR for months and started by designing and making a protype using equipment found at home or in the lab. Then the second prototype design was completed on Solidworks. For the National Final Sean decided to impress the judges more by learning how to use a new CAD programme called Onshape to design the 3rd prototype of the Mars PSR. They decided to use solar cells on this design. Solar energy is often used to power space missions because it is the only source of energy that does not need to be launched with the spacecraft and can power the spacecraft for several years. Joshua ensured that the solar cells were working to power the PSR. Screenshot 20221126 074935 02

While relying on solar panels may seem risky in such a dusty environment on Mars but doing so lessens the amount of mass at launch, lowering cost and complication for the mission and therefore they decided to use solar cells, Joshua ensured they were wired up properly in order to function. It was decided that they needed to make some type of a vacuum system that would blow off the dust that clogs around the moving parts. NASA have had limited success themselves with this idea, but the students wanted to try something anyway and Dara made various protypes of hoover systems that could attach to a Mars Rover. The first two prototypes were designed to suck the dust from the Rover but the 3rd prototype for the final was reconstructed so that it would blow the dust from the solar panels. The finished design also included a microbit to take temperature, light intensity readings and a compass. 

The project had already won the ‘ESERO Discover Space Award’ and ‘Scifest 2022 Runner-Up Best Project Award’ in Dundalk I.T back in April, when they were only in 1st year, which was a remarkablet. achievement.Screenshot 20221126 074941 01 01Screenshot 20221126 074941 01

Largy College Science Week 2022

For Science week the 1st year students completed a project based on one of the new Junior Cycle Learning Outcomes: ‘Students should be able to design, build and test a device that transforms energy from one form to another in order to perform a function; describe the energy changes and ways of improving efficiency’. The projects were of an excellent standard. The winners from each class were presented with their trophies and the overall winner was presented with the perpetual shield. There was also a quiz for 1st years in their classes and various other activities with prizes given for all.

The 2nd year students completed a project based on one of the new Junior Cycle Learning Outcomes also: ‘Students should be able to develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe predictable phenomena observable on Earth, including seasons, lunar phases, and eclipses of the sun and moon’. The projects were of an excellent standard with all students in the year producing finished pieces. The winners from each class and overall winners were presented with their trophies. There was also a quiz for 2nd years in their classes and various other activities with prizes given for all. Congratulations to all the winners of the quizzes –
