OUR SCHOOL

We would like to create an environment where children will acquire and develop the necessary knowledge and skill to become independent, confident learners – where they will develop their self-esteem to enable them to express and achieve their full potential. We will endeavour to broaden each child’s experience to help them become spiritual, well-balanced and tolerant individuals with a respect for themselves and others.

Divine Mercy SNS v Sacred Heart School (Sruleen)

  • 4th May 2022 2:10 pm

The boys' soccer team were back in action again yesterday. They faced Sruleen in an end to end thriller. The boys were up against a very good team and fell behind in the opening stages to a well worked goal. The defence were under a lot of pressure and conceded another goal to leave DM trailing by 2. A good counter attack move saw Cian Becker score the first of his brace before half time to leave the score at 3 1. The boys regrouped at half time and managed to score in the opening minutes of the second half to make the score 3 2 with another fine effort from Cian. Divine Mercy pressed their hosts and eventually got the equaliser through a wonderful solo effort from Nathan Chikono. The lads were unlucky not to score a winner but they deserve huge praise for their never say die attitude and great team spirit to get themselves back into the game after falling behind so early. Great performance boys!

The boys soccer team had another great win today against St Bernadettes on a windy and cold day in Ballyowen Park. Despite the challenging conditions the boys played some excellent football . DM scored an early goal after some lovely link up play with Callum getting the first of his two goals inside the first 10 minutes. Divine Mercy kept the pressure on but failed to add to their goal tally and were unlucky to concede a penalty just before half time. After half time the boys asserted their dominance on the game And through goals from Cian and Callum finished deserved 3 - 1 victors. A great start to the league boys! Keep it up!
