RSA Rollover Shuttle Visits Coláiste Chú Chulainn and Coláiste Lú

The senior students of Coláiste Chú Chulainn and Coláiste Lú Chulainn were given a ‘crash’ course in road safety last week when the RSA Rollover Shuttle visited the sister schools at their new campus at the Marshes.

All TY, 5th and 6th year students had the opportunity to visit the shuttle which promotes safety on the road and focuses on the 6 major road dangers in an effort to reduce road deaths across the country.  Students made the most of the opportunity and experienced the rollover which simulates what happens when a car rolls in an accident and highlights the importance of wearing a seatbelt correctly to help prevent serious injury. 

Bláithín Uí Ríodail is leading the focus on road safety in Coláiste Lú and Coláiste Chú Chulainn.  Transition Year students in both schools will undertake the ‘Wrecked’ road safety programme this year, as well engaging with material in preparation for the driving theory test. 

“Ten people were killed on Co Louth roads in 2017, an increase from 2016,” said Ms Uí Ríodail, “Our aim is to reduce this number by educating our students about safe road practices. The road safety day was a huge success and senior prefects from Coláiste Chú Chulainn will be supporting the road safety campaign each morning this week by acting as Road Safety Stewards at our new designated crossing area at the campus gates.”

Tráth na gCeist Success!

Comhghairdeas mór le daltaí ó Choláiste Chú Chulainn a rug an bua sa chéad babhta de ‘Tráth na gCeist 2018’ atá eagraithe gach bliain ag Gael Linn.  D’fhreastail daltaí ar an tráth na gceist le déanaí a bhí ar siúl san óstán Lisdoo.  Bhí an-lá ag daltaí agus bhain siad an-taitneamh as an cheol, as an damhsa agus as an chraic go léir a bhí acu.

Leanfaidh an fhoireann bhuach (Conor Maddy, Oisín McKenna, Jack O’Reilly, James Russell) ó Choláiste Chú Chulainn ar aghaidh chuig an chéad babhta eile a bheidh ar siúl i Lorgain, Contae Ard Mhacha i ndiaidh na Nollag.

Congratulations to all students who took part in Gael Linn’s Tráth na gCeist which was held recently in the Lisdoo Hotel, Dundalk.  Students enjoyed a day of quizzing, music and céilí dancing and had a fantastic day using their Irish language skills.

A special word of congratulations to the winning team on the day who ensured that Coláíste Chú Chulainn came away with 1st place.  The team, consisting of 2nd year students Conor Maddy, Oisín McKenna, Jack O’Reilly and James Russell  will move on to the next round which will be held in Lurgan, Co. Armagh after Christmas.
