The LCA students had a hands-on, busy day at the Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny on Thursday, 7th November, organised by the Donegal Youth Service. Both groups attended three workshops, meeting professionals in marketing, the army and career guidance. The students were inquisitive, participated fully in the activities and had an all round great day out. The DYS took great care of all attending.
Ms. Marie McLaughlin’s and Ms. Majella Doherty’s 6th year History classes visited the Free Derry Museum and partook in a walking tour of the Bogside with their teachers before the mid-term break. Five employees in the Free Derry Museum were directly affected by Bloody Sunday - fathers, sons, brothers, nephews, uncles, grandads were among the fourteen who were killed - their stories now told by family members. A contemporary witness, Christy, recounted the events of 30 January 1972 as the group walked through the Bogside. He explained the background to each mural with precise detail. After a tasty lunch in the warmth of the Foyleside Shopping Centre the group proceeded to visit the Siege Museum and the Apprentice Boys Hall and another cold walk on the city walls. Visits to both museums gave the group a greater understanding of the need of the Civil Rights Movement and the Apprentice Boys to commemorate their religious and cultural identity. It was an informative day and will help greatly with the pupils' study of the politics and society of Northern Ireland.
Carndonagh Community School makes legal history! On Friday, 18th October CCS was the first of only four Irish secondary schools selected nationwide to take part in a Supreme Court pilot project. This consisted of a questions and answers session via video conference hosted by two Supreme Court judges - the Chief Justice Mr J Frank Clarke and Ms J Mary Irvine. The CCS students were chosen from among TY Legal Studies and 5th Year & 6th Year Politics & Sociology classes. The objective of the project is to open up the Supreme Court to ordinary Irish citizens. It was both an enjoyable experience for all and certainly a day to remember!

The exhibition of work is a fantastic way of showing off the amazing talents the students possess, and a great way to recognise the tremendous effort and hard work the students have put in all year long. This work will be on show until November 2nd in the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny.
