Young Scientists receive Highly Commended ribbon.
Congratulations to our young scientists who received a highly commended ribbon in the BT Young Scientist competition held in Dublin recently.
Their project entitled ” Ireland- A pessimistic nation? ” looked at Ireland’s attitudes to things such as the future of our country, emigration, employment prospects and many other issues.
Well done to all involved.
The boys from Carrigaline put on an impressive show at the weekend when the u16 team travelled to Colaiste Iognaid in Salthill for the All Ireland Quarter Final tournament.
They beat teams from Galway (Cloaiste Iognaid) Letirim (CS Mohill), and Dublin (St. Vincents) in 3 very exciting and closely fought games.
They were a credit to the school, their parents and themselves, representing Carrigaline Community School wonderfully.
A massive thanks to the coaching staff, the Transition Year assistants and all the parents who travelled to Galway to support.
Best of luck to all involved in the All Ireland Semi Final in March.
Carrigaline Community School recently bridged a 14-year gap when they won the Munster U15 Football title in Mallow.
The game was played in driving rain with a very strong wind that favoured Mitchelstown in the first half.
Mitchelstown who were on top early and playing well built up a 0-7 to 0-2 lead by half time.
Carrigaline, now playing with the wind in the second half, were starting to gain momentum. They immediately closed the gap early on with 2 goals in quick succession.
The Game was end to end and by 54 minutes CBS had closed the gap again and the sides were level.
In a very tense and tight last few minutes Carrigaline held on and sealed their victory with an injury time point.
Final Score: Carrigaline 3-6 CBS Mitchelstown 2-8

Another packed schedule of events took place during Health Week 2013 at CCS from 11th -15th November. The theme for this year was physical fitness and activities organised included zumba and circuits classes, Sportswear Day to raise funds for charity, healthy eating challenges and a staff versus students challenge, to name a few. Talks on mental health and healthy eating were also a major part of the week.
A number of staff and students wore specially printed t-shirts with healthy slogans promoting physical fitness. All in all a very successful and enjoyable week was had by all. CCS has the official status of Health Promoting School and the project is managed by Ms. O’Keeffe and Ms. Godsell.
As part of Health Week at CCS senior students had the privilege of attending a talk by speaker Elma Walsh from the Donal Walsh LiveLife foundation on Friday 15th November.
Mrs. Walsh spoke openly and honestly about Donal’s battle with cancer since the age of 12 and about his zest for life along with his anti-suicide campaign.
Students pictured are part of the Young Social Innovators group in CCS who are working with the foundation as part of their progect entitled “Closed Doors”.
A group of 4th year students recently attended training at Trend Micro, an Internet Security company in Cork, to allow them to deliver an Internet Safety programme to 1st Year students in the school. The 4th year students attended the Trend Micro site and received both training and materials to support their delivery of the programme to our junior students. They are currently delivering the programme to our 1st Year students. The intention is to present the programme to 2nd and 3rd years in 2014.
