The senior ladies kicked-off the season with a comprehensive 2-0 victory over Deele College on Wednesday, 5th October. A fantastic team-worked goal finished by Shania McGonigle, and an own-goal were enough to see the ladies through. The scoreline may have read 2-0, but as Mourinho himself said this week, "It could have been 3-0 or 4-0 at half-time, 6-0 at the end of the game, but the result was 2-0; that's football". It was a real team performance from start to finish. CCS stopped Deele crossing the halfway line in the first half, with only a couple of opposition raids in the second. The squad can be proud of their performance as they look forward to their final group match next week against Milford. With news filtering through that local rivals Moville have pulled out of the competition, the girls are more focused than ever, believing that this is their year. If they can replicate a performance like Wednesday's next time out, they'll find themselves in another Ulster Semi-final.
To mark World Mental Health Day (Monday, 10th October), Transition Year Class B pupils have decorated the First Corridor with an array of posters highlighting the issues surrounding mental health. The overall objective is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilise efforts in support of mental health. Well done to TYB who carried out the promotion under the guidance of Mrs Emma Doherty as part of their Social Studies - Wellbeing module.
The Annual European Day of Language took place on Friday, 30th October. The Canteen was once again decked out with signature dishes from around Europe (and the world). The more adventurous among the pupils got stuck into snails, frog legs and kangaroo. Impressively, a whole lobster also made an appearance on the menu. It was a fine spread that intrigued the pupils, though many were cautious and a few were just plain squeemish. Overall, however, it was a day of cultural appreciation.
The week of the 3rd of October is Dyslexia Awareness Week in CCS. Dyslexia affects 1 in 10 students. There are many definitions of dyslexia. A very simple one would be that dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty which makes it hard for some people to learn, read, write and/or spell correctly.
Under the umbrella of The CCS Dyslexia Initiative and to coincide with Dyslexia Awareness Week, we will be screening all CCS students in their class groups for dyslexia using computer software. The hope is to identify pupils with slight dyslexia that might have gone undiscovered. However, if you decide that you do not wish for your child to be screened, please provide notice in their School Journal.
Ordinarily, it’s customary to allow a pupil to write the match report. However, following yesterday’s Pupils v Staff “goal-fest”, it was pretty obvious that a pupil-inspired match report just wouldn’t be appropriate. First of all, nobody actually knows what the score was. Sure, the pupils would point to a “countless” number of goals in their favour. But as everybody knows, if you don’t know the EXACT score…it’s a draw! That all effectively means that the Staff remain undefeated! Well done everyone - players and spectators - for a great show.
CCS took all three points on a wet and blustery day in Carn (Wednesday, 28th September). Goals from Captain Kieran Farren and Cade Cooke gave CCS a well-deserved win against a very resolute Moville team.
CCS would have been out of sight by half-time but for the heroics of the Moville keeper who made four point-blank saves. He also commanded the box for a number of corners that must have easily been in double figures by the break. Moville had the crossbar to thank for keeping a long range effort from Jack Doherty out of the top corner.
Daniel Houghton was finally needed when a long clearance broke to a surprised Moville striker who shot low, but couldn’t beat the CCS keeper.
CCS made a number of changes at the break and picked up where they left off in the first half. Shots from Fionn McClure, Kieran Farren, and substitutes Pearce McCarron and Cade Cooke were all well saved.
The deadlock was finally broken with ten minutes to go - a long individual run from midfield by Farren was finished low past the keeper from a tight angle. Within two minutes, CCS had doubled their lead when Cade Cooke was slipped through the middle, finishing low past the keeper. It was a hard earned result, but was nothing less than the lads deserved having stuck to the game plan throughout. Well done all.
Team: Daniel Houghton (Pauric O’Donnell), Mikey Friel (Lorcan Bradley), Conor O’ Donnell, Ciaran Doherty, Lee McLaughlin (Nathan McKinney), Fionn McClure, Kieran Farren, Jake Harkin (Jordan McLaughlin), Corey McBride (Pearce McCarron/Sean McCrron), Jack Doherty (Anthony Doherty), Luke Rudden (Cade Cooke)
