Athy College is delighted to receive 21st Century School of Distinction award from Trinity College this year. Last year we were runners up in this national competition but have this year received this most prestigious award which covers every aspect of the school. School of Distinction represents a lot of hard work in innovation, teaching method, inclusion and much more and we are proud to be at the cutting edge of education delivery. Well done to all .
On Thursday 25th of October the 1st year girls futsal team travelled to Clongowes Wood College for the Kildare schools FAI indoor soccer blitz. There were 8 schools competing in the blitz with two groups of four. Athy College didn't make it out of their group and make the final however there were great goals scored by Georgina Grufferty and Erin Brereton Foley. Other notable performances on the day included brilliant defensive displays by Molly Doyle Walsh, Zoe Bell and Gabija Svetokaite. Lea Zawada and Naomi Kelly Burke worked hard all day in attack and defence and Hannah McDermott, Sarah Grimes and Maya Kalenbet were solid in goals throughout the tournament. The team really enjoyed the blitz and will resume training after the midterm break.
