On Wednesday afternoon, 25th May, one of the country's most highly-rated sportsmen visited CCS for the Annual Sports Awards. The "Man From the Glen" addressed all the pupils involved in school sports. During his speech, Michael reiterated the key ingridient for his development as an individual and a sportsperson...Focus. He advised young people to surround themselves with positivity and to concentrate fully on the matter at hand, at that moment in time, whether it's sport or study. There is no better role model for our pupils than Michael Murphy and we would like to thank him for his visit and his inspirational words.
Always hugely popular with the students is the Pal or Public Access to Law Day. This workshop involves a barrister coming to the school and giving an overview of the Irish legal system in the morning and presiding over a mock trial in the afternoon. This year, we had two groups over two days - 7th and 8th April 2016. Mr Henry Lynch BL remarked on the performances of Luke Devlin in his role as a witness and Christopher Gill and Maria Farren in their roles as barristers. The pupils who took part sat an exam the following week. First prize went to Gemma McCormick (94%), and in joint-second were Aishling McKinney and Darragh McWilliams (92%). As always, the feedback has been excellent and the workshop was a very positive experience for the TYs.

On Thursday, 19th May, staff members headed for Glenevin Waterfall and the Annual John Doherty Memorial Walk. The weather didn't permit a tour of the Urris Lakes, but the waterfall was no less of a spectacle. Over €500 was raised for charity among the staffrooms. Many thanks to all members of staff who participated and contributed. We continue to remember John Doherty as a colleague, friend and avid hillwalker.
