Ethos & Characteristic Spirit

Since 1981 Carrigaline Community School has been at the heart of life in our community. We are proud of the achievements of our students and staff over the decades and continue to be committed to our central mission – the provision of a quality learning environment for all.

We provide an expansive curriculum which caters for the diverse skills and aptitudes of our school community.

We seek to promote a happy and caring school climate which offers children and young adults opportunities to develop as good citizens, active and just, proud of their inherited values and beliefs.

The Study Ethos at CCS

At CCS, we recognise the need to encourage and support effective study habits. Our study ethos ensures that all students receive guidance:

  • Within the classroom environment
  • By providing seminars for students and their parents
  • By the organisation of evening-time supervised study in an atmosphere conducive to study in the school
  • All junior cycle students receive detailed Study Seminars each year during Junior Cycle.

Our senior cycle students receive seminars aimed at enhancing the students' study skills & techniques, thereby ensuring that students utilise to the maximum their available study time. It is our school’s tradition that an external Study Guidance/Enrichment Agency provides comprehensive seminars to students and parents at the beginning of the Leaving Cert year.

After school Supervised Study is available for all State Examination students on Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays during term-time from 4p.m. to 5.45p.m. Night time Supervised Study is available as part of our Adult Education programme. Assisted study programmes are available for State Examination students during October & February mid-term breaks and during Easter school holidays.
