It was a magnificent creation and her consistency during the twelve weeks of the competition saw her walk away with the coveted title. Every success in the future Cathy.

Basketball Finalists

Captain Verity

On the 10th of December the U 19 basketball team from St. Louis Secondary School Monaghan travelled to Kingscourt Co. Cavan to play in the North East division ‘’A’’ league final against Virginia college.  The girls went into the match as favourites after winning all of their previous league encounters this year. However, they had only narrowly beaten their final opponents by 2 points in their first meeting  and they knew this game would be a very tight contest as Virginia were aiming to get their name on the cup for the third year in a row. 
 A strong start by Virginia meant they were leading 5 points to 0 after 3 minutes but a time-out called by coach Tom O’Connor quickly sorted the situation as the Louis girls came back out fighting and it was this fight that led them to a 13 point victory. A full team effort was required in a tiresome yet thrilling contest. All subs were used and each player put every last bit of their energy into the game. The team consisted of captain Verity O’Connor, Ellen Mulligan, Amy Mulligan, Natasha Hughes, Rachel Gallagher, Meghan McKenna, Celia Leblon, Kate Aughey and Lucy McDonald. Congratulations to the girls on this great achievement and we wish them the best of luck in their subway All Ireland semi-final which takes place on the 12th of January. A sincere thank you to Ms Amy Rooney and Tom O Connor for their words of encouragement to the team on the day. Well done girls!

The Salerno School Community was delighted to welcome Sr Monica, General Superior of RJM and Sr Carmen, member of General Team, to the school on 10th November.  Accompanied by Sr Mary Mulrooney, the Provincial of the Religious of Jesus and Mary in Ireland, this was part of the Sisters’ General Visitation where they visit each JM school in the world during their six year term.

Staff and pupils were struck by the radiant presence of the two sisters. There was a sincere and genuinely spiritual aura which followed them. Sr Monica addressed the staff with expressions of gratitude for being the face of St Claudine to the pupils of the school.  She spoke of the emphasis we have on the pastoral care of the students and the feelings of unity and kindness in the school.  The Sisters were entertained by the students with song, dance and recital. Sr Monica spoke to the girls and captivated them with her story of ‘The wise man and the butterfly’.

All were struck by the Sisters’ gentle spirits, their warm smiles, their faith and their humility.
