Welcome to Boyne Community School

         A warm welcome to our website which will keep you updated on life here in Boyne Community School.

        I feel confident in describing Boyne Community School as being caring, progressive, forward thinking and able to respond rapidly to the changing world in which we find ourselves. Only by being at the forefront of developments in education will we ensure that our students develop the skills and confidence they will need to succeed.   I believe this can be achieved within a context of traditional academic values where high expectations are placed upon students’ academic achievements and realised in a positive learning environment.

         At the heart of our success is a team of dedicated teachers and support staff who are all committed to ensuring that our students receive the very best opportunities that a school can provide.   The school’s ethos is informed by our mission statement and our motto, (Meas, Mórtas, Muintearas)   Central to our aim is the desire to ensure that all our girls and boys achieve their potential in an environment that respects difference and upholds the dignity and rights of each person.   We also recognise fully the importance of respecting ourselves and everyone around us (meas), of always doing our best and having pride in our work (mórtas) and , as a community school, feeling a sense of belonging to the whole community (muintearas).

        We offer a wide range of education programmes in Boyne Community School including Junior Certificate, JCSP, Transition Year, Leaving Certificate, LCA, and LCVP.   The school offers an excellent choice in academic and practical subjects and a wide variety of extra and co-curricular activities.   These are aimed to ensure that every student receives the best possible educational experience in a supportive environment.

        We also recognise fully the importance of the partnership between home and school.   Boyne Community School is fortunate to be well supported by parents/guardians who care greatly for the education of their daughters/sons.   We all work together to ensure that each student develops the skills and confidence to succeed in life.

Victory for Boyne CS u19 Soccer Boys

       Boyne CS U19s followed up their first Senior Division 1 North East title with a fantastic win over North Dublin title holders Chanel College Coolock in the Leinster Champions League QF played at the MDL grounds.
       In what turned out to be a hugely competitive game that saw both teams field schoolboy international players, the Trim lads deservedly came out on top with a 4 - 1 victory.
        Boyne CS got off to the perfect start when Oisin Devlin converted a penalty after 5 minutes. Boyne CS continued to play high tempo football which saw both sides put bodies on the line in a frantic first half which was full of quality. The second came courtesy of an in-direct free kick from inside the box which Oisin Devlin finished to the top corner leaving the Chanel keeper with no chance.
        Chanel started the second half on the front foot and got themselves back in the game shortly after the break making it 2-1. Boyne battled well to withstand the pressure with Captain Cian Lee marshaling the defense brilliantly throughout. The third goal came after a great break down the right from Cian O Hare which saw him find Oisin who managed to dribble the ball past 2 defenders and the goalkeeper to walk into an empty net for his hat trick. Chanel still posed a threat but a superbly taken fourth from Kian Malone, who drilled a low finish into the bottom corner to finish off the North Dublin champions.
        They now go on to play Birr in the Leinster semi final in the hunt for a first Leinster Senior Division 1 Title for the school.

         Team - Malachy Doyle, Cian O Hare, Kian Malone, Luke Mahon, Cian Lee (c), Conor Hallinan, Conor Quigley, Luke Byrne, James Clarke, Dylan Farrell and Oisin Devlin. Sub, Aonghus Shortt.

Our Junior Ladies had their second win of the season on Friday the 6th October

        They had a comprehensive victory over Coláiste na Mí.  The previous week this same side defeated Rathcairn.  Our girls showed immense teamwork, skill and determination in both these victories.  Our 1st years have been a great addition to this junior side with two of the girls making the starting team.

        Unfortunately our senior ladies team were outclassed by a strong Athboy ladies team on Wednesday the 4th October.

        There are plenty of upcoming fixtures prior to midterm break. It is great to see the girls so committed to training each Tuesday and Thursday at lunchtime. Any other girls that are interested are more than welcome to join the panel.

The junior debating team competed in the UCD law society debate

        Congratulations to Enda McKenna and Rachel Nevin from the junior debating team who competed in the UCD law society debate last week. They came 1st in their category and have now made it through to the next round later this year. Well done to the researchers and PR team who did an excellent job too.

        The debating team meets every Wednesday at lunchtime. This is an excellent opportunity for all involved to work on their research skills and to work collaboratively. There is no doubt that participating in debating in an excellent opportunity for our students to build up the necessary skills for their oral presentation for Junior Cert English. It allows them to grow in confidence when addressing a group.

        These skills are also being developed among our senior students. Our senior debating team will be competing in the Concern Debates against Oldcastle. We wish them the very best of luck.

        Exciting times ahead!
