Great success for the Waterpolo team as they reached the final of a schools tournament in Dublin yesterday. They beat St. Joseph's Cabra, Marian College and Mount Temple en route to the final. However Blackrock proved difficult opponents in the final and Bokerboys had to settle for runners up. A remarkable achievement indeed.
Well done to Mr. Francis and all students involved.

Colaiste Éamonn Rís Takes a Bite Out the Big Apple

Our fifth New York exchange took place this past April with Iona Prep High School in New Rochelle, New York.  David Kavanagh, Angelo Miculescu, Leon Nolan Cullen, Jack Pierce, Ultan Warren, Patsy Whelan, Mr. Hegarty and Mrs. Hayes saw the sights and sounds of the city that never sleeps.  Their first visit was to the 9/11 Memorial Museum.  It was a very moving remembrance of the event that affected so many people across the world.  Over the next few days they visited The Intrepid- Sea, Air and Space Museum, sailed around Manhattan on a Circle Line cruise and explored the Museum of Natural History.  They took in a Broadway show - The School of Rock, had a bird’s eye view of NYC from the top of the Empire State Building and shopped  ‘til they dropped in Century 21, Times Square and 5th Ave.  They headed up to their hosts at Iona Prep and went home to become part of their American families.  They enjoyed four days in school attending classes and then everyone, students and teachers, revelled in a glorious sunny day at a Mets game at Citifield in Queens. The week ended with a lovely service in the school chapel celebrating the two Edmund Rice schools.

Blue Nose Day

 Blue is the colour associated with Autism and many venues all around the world go blue for World autism Awareness day hence the reason for our Blue Nose campaign.  April is Autism Awareness month and this year our Blue nose campaign will be driven towards a world record attempt on Sunday April 27th which hopefully will not alone raise much needed funds for the charity but will raise understanding and awareness of autism through this campaign.
Well done to our First Year group who organised this years event.

Top Oil South Leinster Juvenile Hurling ‘C’ Final

Wexford CBS……………………………………..…2-11
Colaiste Bhride (Carnew)…………………………….0-3

A strong defensive showing from Wexford CBS sealed the South Leinster Juvenile Hurling ‘C’ title after a stubborn battle from the students of Colaiste Bhride (Carnew) at Ferns Centre of Excellence last Friday.
However, CBS had enough guile and craft to end up comfortable winners after an entertaining and full blooded sixty minutes. The opening quarter ended with the score at 0-2 each and it was only after this period that CBS took off and built up a sizeable lead.
Carnew captain Conor Hughes opened the scoring with a converted free but Adam Feery and Richard Lawlor edged CBS back in front before a fine point from Carnew midfielder Bradley Hickey levelled matters.
CBS, coached by Willie Carley, JJ Doyle and parents Nicky Lawlor, Tommy Hynes and Dermot Butler, were launching attack after attack but were not being direct enough and the Carnew defence repelled them. In the second quarter they ran at the defence and got the scores they needed.
Josh Shiel put the Wexford town school into the lead and the crucial score arrived in the 25th minute when Emmett Nolan’s shot hit the net. The pressure began to tell and Glen Murphy-Butler finished the half with three points (two from frees and a ’65) to send his team in at half-time with a 1-6 to 0-2.
Murphy-Butler got the opening score of the second half with a converted ’65 and Reece Murphy shoved the Bokerboys into a 1-8 to 0-2 lead before Conor Hughes got his side’s final point from a free.
CBS extended their lead through Adam Feery but they squandered many chances to put the game away. At the other end Carne were doing their level best to get the scores to put them back in the game but the CBS defence, led by man of the match Josh Murphy, was in no mood to let them back in.
The final nail in the coffin for Carnew was Reece Murphy’s 49th minute goal while Jason Gordon and Josh Shiel finished out the game with points.
Afterwards CBS captain Glen Murphy-Butler received the cup from Pat Henderson of Leinster Council. As a result of this victory, Wexford CBS will compete at ‘B’ level in Juvenile (u14½) and Junior (u16½) in 2016/17.

National Enterprise Awards Croke Park

Best of luck lads from all at Wexford C.B.S.

Dapper Bokerboys

The Dapper Bowtie Company made an appearance on Live TV last Saturday night as they were invited to participate in a section on The Ray D'arcy Show about the upcoming  National Young Enterprise Awards. They certainly appeared confident and made a great impression, as they had the chance to present their excellent bowtie products.
We wish them well in the finals in Croke Park on Wednesday.

China Tour

Twenty four TY students and three teachers travelled to Beijing, China via Istanbul recently to experience Chinese culture and language first hand. It was the trip of a lifetime, as the group visited The Great Wall, Temple Of Heaven Summer Palace, Olympic Park and Birds Nest Stadium, Beijing Zoo, City Museeum as well as dining on very local cuisine at local restaurants, haggling at the Silk and Pearl Markets. They also attended an amazing acrobatic show and took part in a Kung Fu class.
The 12 hour overnight train  trip to Xian was an experience not to be forgotten, as was the visit to the Terrecotta Warriors and cycling on top of the 14k Wall of Xian.
