Naas Community College will host Transition Year for the first time starting in September 2018-2019 when our current Third Years will return after their well deserved Summer break. Following on from the Transition Year Information Evening held for parents on Wednesday 21st February 2018 we have set up a new Transition Year section of our website here.
Well done to the First Year Soccer team participating in the Kildare FAI schools competition over the course of the last three weeks. It is the first year that these players have participated and they have gained some valuable experience which will stand to them in the years ahead of them. We played our group matches away to St Farnans, Prosperous, and we played a home game against Celbridge CC. Unfortunately we lost both of our matches, however the players learnt a lot to bring with them into the competition next year. Stand out performances came from John McBride and Pat Bagnall playing at left and right back, while Ben McDonald also needs a mention for his performances in the centre of midfield. Ross Watson scored our only goal in the two games, and we look forward to improving on this in the next season.
Michael O'Sullivan, the director of the Humour Fit theatre company, presented workshops to all students in NCC today as part of Resilience Week. Michael has travelled to schools all around Ireland addressing issues such as bullying and resilience in a dramatic light for twenty six years. Michael visited NCC two years ago and his return visit was very much appreciated
Key ideas covered during the workshop included:
A new Internet Safety page has been added to our website. This page will be regularly updated with advice and information for students and their parents.

On Friday 2nd February first and second year students participated in Gaelic Football training.We started the training session by jogging up and down the pitch. This was followed by some stretching. After that we focused on game skills including how to keep posession of the ball when tackled and improving defensive strategies. We finished off by practicing our shooting by kicking points.
