In advance of the re-opening of Carndonagh Community School, pupils and parents / guardians can find all COVID-19 related updates at the link below. Updates will be posted in chronological order with the most recent update appearing at the top.
UPDATED 25th SEPTEMBER 2020
The Leaving Cert Applied class of 2020 have been making the best of the current situation. Between online classes, pupils have been very busy with farming, childcare and petcare among other responsibilities. Daily walks have also allowed for a fair bit of creative photography. The message hasn't changed - keep up the good work, and please stay safe. The lockdown WILL end and we can all play our part in making that sooner rather than later.
As per Public Health Guidelines which have introduced the Stay at Home Policy and Social Distancing measures due to Covid 19, it places greater challenges than ever for parents to ensure that children are safe in their homes in terms of their online activities.
Leaving Certificate Fees: The closing date for payment of the Leaving Cert examination fee is being extended until after the exams are complete and the results are to be issued.
Junior Certificate/Cycle Fees: Students will not be required to pay examination fees to the SEC in relation to the 2020 Junior Cycle examinations. The SEC will be issuing a refund to all students who have already paid. There is no need to contact the State Examinations Commission as refunds will be made automatically. Further details will be sent to all schools in the coming days.
The competition has ended to name the TY Mascots. Say hello to Timmy & Bloom! The cute lambs belong to Chaylee Greene TYC and Danny Mc Laughlin TYD. Thanks to everyone who participated and suggested a name.
