Principal’s Welcome

June 2020

Welcome to First Year at CCS!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we are now in the final stages of preparation for the new academic year, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all our First Year students.

Elsewhere in this section, or by clicking on the links below, you will find all relevant information for the new school year. If you need anything printed, please email the school office at

  • Transition Workbook - The big move from Primary to Secondary School should be exciting but your child might also feel a bit nervous. It will involve a lot of changes and new experiences. This is Carrigaline Community School's Transition Workbook and your child can use it in their primary school, at home and also in our school. It will hopefully explain a lot about Secondary School and answer some of their questions, as well as help to prepare them for all the changes.
  • Code of Behaviour and our policy statements on Anti-Bullying and ICT Acceptable Use Policy The Board of Managment requests that all parents discuss the key points raised in our 'Code of Behaviour' / 'Anti-bullying' policies with your children and retain them for reference. As is our practice, parents and pupils will sign a school 'Code of Behaviour' agreement form at the commencement of the new academic year, which will include a list of banned items.
  • General school information – please give particular attention to our policy on mobile phones and electronic devices
  • Booklist
  • Uniform details
  • Schedule for return to school in August

I wish our new First Year students every success for the new academic year and we look forward to meeting you in person.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Burke,
Principal & Secretary to the Board of Management
