A New Era Begins at Carrigaline Community School

The outcome of the multi-million Euro development of our school campus becomes apparent for all to see and experience at CCS this autumn. Refurbishment of much of our existing building, accompanied by the construction of a major three storey extension, Engineering Block, purpose build ASD Resource Centre and state of the art Physical Education Hall and Fitness Suite will enable Carrigaline Community School to enhance still further the excellent education provision for the community of Carrigaline.

The initial school, constructed in 1981 catered for 810 students. The redeveloped campus, launching this autumn, enables the school to continue to provide a quality education for 1200 day students, in addition to offering comprehensive adult and continuing education to the community at large.

Our non-selective, inclusive school will continue to provide a top quality education across the campus. In addition to our existing refurbished facilities, our new development features: much enlarged, new social areas and circulation spaces, an additional fourteen ICT equipped general purpose classrooms, three new ICT Centres, three new Science Laboratories and associated preparation areas, a new Engineering Block, as well as first class social studies and career guidance facilities and administration and pastoral offices. Our proud sporting and extra-curricular tradition will continue to thrive with our redeveloped full-size pitches.

Our new campus enables us to continue to be the leading provider of education in our community.

ALL IRELAND U16 BASKETBALL CHAMPIONS!

Congratulations to our U16 Boys Basketball team who were crowned All-Ireland champions in March. It proved to be a hugely tense and exciting game, with scores level many times throughout the game.

In true CCS spirit, the boys  never gave up and matched St Joseph’s score for score right to the end.   CCS sealed victory in the dying seconds with a final score of 53-51.

Well done to all involved for the hard work and dedication over the past months.
