New CCS Photography Club

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.

TY visit to ‘Fighting Words’ workshop

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!!
