Congratulations to Eithne Byrne, Eimear Brady and Jodie Meehan who were awarded 2nd place in the Senior Category (Social and Behavioural Sciences) at the Young Scientist Competition recently.
Also congratulations to our Fourth year team which included Orlaith Hickey, Caoimhe Coghlan and Rebecca Allenby who won an award for their project display.
Their project investigated roadkill in the Carrigaline area and they came up with a device hoped to act as a deterrent for animals crossing busy roads.
Well done to all involved and to their teachers Ms J Godsell and Ms G McCarthy.
A new photography club has been formed in CCS under the guidance of Mr Lyons, Ms McMenamin and Mr Cahill.
It is hoped that a group of photography enthusiasts across all years can come together every few weeks to develop their interest and skills in all things photography related.
New members are welcome, regardless of level of experience, knowledge or Camera type.
The club will meet on selected Wednesdays after school in the Art Room.
CCS had two winners of the national ‘Write a Poem Competition’ run by the PDST recently.
Cian Jefferies (6th year) won 3rd prize in the senior category and Jamie Connell (3rd year) was ‘highly commended’ in the junior category. There were 900 entries so these are worthy achievements.
Congratulations to all involved.
The 4.5 TY communications class took a trip to Dublin this April. We visited the Roddy Doyle writing centre called ‘Fighting Words’. The students took part in a creative writing workshop facilitated by a small group of writers and post graduate students.
Having worked in a group everyone then had the opportunity to write their own piece and share it with the group.
It was a great experience for all and hopefully will have inspired some budding writers of the future!!
38 of our fourth and fifth year students spent a few days of their Easter holidays in Killarney as part of their Gaisce Challenges.

Well done to all students who took part.
On 9th April our second years did a Fun Walk in aid of The Mercy Hospital Foundation and in memory of their friend Danny Crowley. The lads raised €5385, well done to all
