This year marks the 10 year anniversary of Piper’s Hill College, Naas and a special concert took place on Thursday, May 9th as part of our celebrations.

This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to perform for the whole school community and the talent, hard work and dedication of all those involved shone through. Singers and musicians performed a range of songs, modern and classic, and the great energy and excitement on stage kept the audience entertained all evening. 

After the show, past and present students, staff and families were invited for refreshments in the foyer. It was a lovely chance to catch up with old friends, and exchange memories and stories from over the years. In particular, we welcomed many past pupils back to the school and we will be launching a Past Pupil’s Union in the coming months to  bring our community together. 

We are all very proud of the vibrant and inclusive school community that has grown over these ten years and a concert hosted by our students was a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. Well done to all our singers and musicians, backstage crew and staff and students who made the evening such a success.

The girls have had an excellent season so far, many were on the team last year and there have been a few newcomers joining  this year. Katilyn Miley a senior basketball player has joined the coaching team and has taught the girls some excellent plays and tactics that have given the girls an extra edge on the court! St Leo’s were a strong team scoring their first basket in the first few seconds of the match. Piper’s came in the lead only in the third quarter which showed the strength and determination from the girls!
Olivia Miley and Niamh Farrelly (our two point guards) have shown fantastic skills in handling the ball and with the help of their team players on offence have led the team to victory! Some of the other girls who also scored points for the team in the quarter finals are Emma Tully, Ella Doyle and Ava Dunne. 
 Ms Hills has commended the girls on how hard they work and train every week. Their consistent success is due to their team work on the court and the fantastic players who defend the basket also. 
The semi finals will take place against Rochertbridge in the next week. Best of luck to all the team and coach Ms Hills in their upcoming game.
