There was disappointment for u16 hurlers on Monday 4th November. Despite great performances in earlier rounds, they were knocked out of the Leinster Hurling League at the Quarter Final stage. They gave it their all on an absolutely miserable day with the rain pouring down on the pitch in Parnell's. They can hold their heads high for getting so far and representing Chanel so well.
Thanks to coaches Ms Dunphy and Mr Quinn for bringing the team so far and Mr O'Keeffe for helping out on the day.

On the students' side, 1.3 Prefects organised a great Peaky Blinders theme for their 1st year class. Gerald O'Regan's vending machine was a work of pure genius and the detail was so...
Our u15’s soccer team had a comfortable home victory on Monday 21st October against St Declan’s of Cabra. After a shaky start St Declan’s took the lead, but the Chanel lads didn’t let that faze them.

Luke Fitzpatrick, along with James Keating controlled the midfield with the former scoring the second, giving Chanel the lead. TJ Tighe was unlucky with a free kick hittin...
On Wednesday 9th October, 6th year students with the help of the Chaplaincy Team organised a hugely successful coffee morning to raise funds for a Hope Garden in honour of friends and family members of our students and staff.
The volume and selection of delicious cakes was amazing, to the extent that some were still being consumed in the staff canteen on Friday morning!
Over the last few weeks, all 3rd year classes attended the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation in County Wicklow. They all had a tremendous day, led by facilitator Mr Eamonn Rafter. In particular, the students explored the themes of sectarianism, peace and respect.
Thanks to the Glencree Centre and Mr Rafter for facilitating and the ever busy Chaplaincy Team for organising.
