There was great excitement in the Science Department in De La Salle College last week as four baby chicks hatched in time for Science Week. The eggs, supplied by Nore Valley Farm in Kilkenny, were incubated for 21 days and hatched last Thursday. The chicks are being cared for by the students at present, and will return to Nore Valley Farm when they get a little bigger.

Our senior debaters travelled to C.B.S Kilkenny last night to oppose the motion, ‘Thirty years on the world is still no closer to ending the HIV and Aids epidemic.’ Unfortunately we were defeated to an experienced debating side. This was our first debate of the year and for all our debaters it actually was the first debate they ever competed in. It was a fantastic display from our debaters who put in a tremendous effort. Our next debate is away on the 16th of November against Presentation Secondary School.
This year’s First year Choir came together in mid-September and they rehearse for one class each week. There are 50 singers in this choir and they already make a really good sound. At the moment they preparing three songs for the Christmas Concert in December and these include; Yesterday, By the Waters of Babylon and This Little Light of Mine.
Christmas will be a busy time for them as they will be performing in The Christmas Concert at DLS and also the Carol Service. They will sing at Carols by Candlelight in the Sacred Heart Church on Monday December 17th and this year they will perform at Winterval on Wednesday December 19th. So they have lots to look forward to after Halloween and no doubt they will be great.

On Friday 19th October 2018, 52 senior cycle students from De La Salle College Waterford represented our school for the first time in the South Regional Indoor Qualifiers in Ultimate Frisbee. The competition took place in the W.I.T. Arena and there were teams from Limerick, Cork and Waterford in attendance.
Our boys competed against the best in Munster claiming an astonishing 4 qualification spots from a possible 6 in total. They displayed their developing skills where one of the teams were victorious against the team who claimed top spot. They demonstrated their sportsmanship through the Spirit of the Game of Ultimate Frisbee. We are extremely proud of their achievements and we are now making plans for the finals in March.
Congratulations to the De La Salle College swimming team who represented the school in the Munster Schools competition in University of Limerick on Sunday 21st October.

Colmans next week. The players wanted to support Touching Hearts by printing and displaying the logo on the back of the jersey. It’s a charity that was set up to build a new early intervention centre for children between 0-6 years with additional needs. The centre also offers respite for families through aftercare and the project is ongoing.
