Open Day 2011

Open Day 2011 took place at CCS on Thursday 29th September last and was a great success with a large number of prospective students and their families attending both the afternoon and evening sessions. Below is a taste of some of the activities on the day.

Log on Learn 2011

On Monday the 10th of October Carrigaline Community School Transition Year students were introduced to their buddies for the Log on Learn programme where older members of the community learn about computers from students in the school. All those involved were full of enthusiasm and couldn’t wait to get started.

22 people arrived at C.C.S and were paired up with a student to learn about the following in the coming weeks: Parts of the Computer, Microsoft Word, Internet and Email. Those with more experience will be able to go beyond this and learn more advanced things such as using Skype and shopping online.

Students reported that ‘It was a great experience meeting their buddy on the opening day’. They all agreed that they had a good time on Day 1 of the teaching and all are looking forward to the forthcoming classes.

Below are some photographs of Log On, Learn on the opening day.
