Congratulations to the u16 Badminton team who had a great day on Friday 8th November, winning all three games of their games in the Dublin Schools Badminton Championship.

They are now through to the Dublin quarter final stage. This is a huge achievement, considering that this team only came together in the last few months and this was their first outing,

Well done to the lads and coaches Ms Dunphy and Mr Foley for all their time, hard work and encouragement.

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.

Friday 25th October saw some very strange characters lurking around the corridors of Chanel. The annual Halloween Fancy Dress was a huge success with some of the most creative and inventive costumes we've seen to date. The majority of the teachers got into the spirit of things and special mention goes to Sr Sheanon and Snow White Brady.  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...

Mr. Gill, teachers, prefects and parents celebrated with the 1st Years on Wednesday 24th October in St Brendan's church as they completed their first term in Chanel College. 

The theme for the occasion was Community and Friendship.

Fr. O'Gara along with Christian and Ryan gave wonderful speeches on how important our friends are in our lives today and how Jesus also needed his friends, the disciples.

Each of the Form classes created and displayed beautiful original symbols to represent the talents an...

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. They hit back instantly with great pressing from Sean Gorman and Alex Lynch at full back to allow Niks Balmaks to score from a resulting corner. 

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...

Over the past 6 weeks all 1st years got to experience some French culture and taste delicious croissants, pains au chocolat and tartines. 

The students learned how to order typical French breakfast foods in their best French accents. They also gave a lovely rendition of Frère Jacques to anyone who popped in to join in the fun.

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!

Congratulations and thanks to all who took part.

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.
