Well done to our two boys basketball teams today against Portlaoise College. The U16 team won decisively by 31 to 18 but the U19 were on level scores until last 3 minutes when they lost by a basket. Well done to both teams and thanks to Mr Higgins, Nigel and Mick
Construction is well under way of the ballstop netting around the Athy College pitch. The construction work also includes raising the fence on the road side of the astro pitch. The new floodlighting on the astro will greatly extend the use of this facility this autumn

Fifth years yesterday participated in the Drive for Life programme. which is a one-day course offered to students. It aims to raise awareness of road safety and mould attitudes of young drivers-to-be before they actually start to drive. The Programme is aimed at preventing young people becoming involved in road traffic incidents that all too often result in serious injury or death.
Thanks to Linda Mulhall and Declan Keogh, Kildare Road Safety Officer for organising this
Goalposts and ballstop netting are currently under construction on our grass pitch. In addition the roadside fence of the astro pitch is being raised. These works should be completed next week and will be a welcome addition to the sporting facilities of the college.
