All second year students took part in a quiz for Science Week. The final was won by Adam McFeely, Liam Doherty and Conor Noone. Deirdre Brennan, Dara Mc Laughlin, Jacklyn Duffy and Conor Doherty were runners-up. Congratulations to all winners.
During Maths Week, a school-wide quiz was held and pupils from all year groups were invited to answer five maths questions. Pupils who answered all five questions correctly were entered in a draw. The lucky five were Dean Grant 2B, Cade Cooke 4A, Shaun Hirrell 3F, Patrick McKenna 5E and Emma McCloskey 1C. Also in the photo are Deputy Principal Owen McConway and Ms. Sharon Coyle. Thanks to the Maths teachers for their help, and thanks also to all the pupils who entered.
Carndonagh Community School would like to thank Inishowen Rugby Club for their very kind contributuion to the refurbishment of the gym facilities in the school. At the beginning of November, IRFC committee members Anne Scott and Mick McGarry presented a €500 cheque to Principal Paul Fiorentini. Also present was Brian McNally who was representing both the school and the Rugby Club.
CCS put in a very hard shift to come away with victory on the banks of the Finn River in the first round of the Ulster Championship. CCS took the lead through Dayton Cooke after five minutes when a loose ball from a Kieran Farren free kick was finished through a crowded penalty area into the far corner. CCS's ability to play football was hampered by bad weather and a very heavy pitch. Resolute defending restricted St. Columba's to long range efforts ensuring CCS finished the half one up.
CCS started the second half well and within ten minutes were 2-0 up when a Fionn McClure corner was headed home by Conor O'Donnell. CCS controlled the game and continued to keep St. Columba's restricted to long range efforts. CCS should have wrapped up the tie when Darragh Deery broke through, but he was unlucky to see shot cannon off the post. There was a nervous conclusion to the game; a long range effort was parried by Daniel Houghton and the St. Columba's striker was quickest to reacted, finishing high into net. CCS closed out the game thanks to some excellent defending and team work. Well done all.
Team: Daniel Houghton, Joseph Doherty, Ciaran Doherty, Conor O'Donnell, Conor McGeoghegan, Evan Tweed (Cade Cooke), Thomas Ramsey, Dayton Cooke (Jake Harkin), Fionn McClure, Kieran Farren, Darragh Deery. Subs not used: Daniel McCallion, Oisin Hession, Blaise Diver, Mark Doherty, Tiernan Devine.
This time last year Grainne Doherty, Niall Kelly and Julie Quinn set out to create "Sheer Glass", assisted by their teacher, Pauline McDermott. The dress is made of over 100 green, crushed glass bottles and old findings of PVA glue. The dress was entered into the competition Junk Kouture, eventually making it to the finals and winning the Bank of Ireland Glamour Award. All involved were delighted! As a reward the dress AND model got to attend the Royal Film Premiere in London.
A few weeks ago Julie was told that she would be attending the Royal Film Premiere of the new James Bond film, Spectre. She was determined to get Grainne and Niall to London. With the help of a CCS Fashion Fundraiser, the School and the support of the Donegal Film Office, they got their tickets. They were absolutely delighted!
The trio travelled to London on October Bank Holiday weekend. Julie met up with the other Glamour Award winning team from Co. Weastmeath and also met Elizabeth Curran and Troy Armour, founders of Junk Kouture. Model Adelina, Elizabeth and Troy walked the red carpet with Julie.
Julie describes the experience of the red carpet:
"Attending the Royal Film Premiere was truely an incredible experience. I felt so glamorous landing on the red carpet, having had our hair and makeup done. I was overwhelmed with the crowds and paprazzi. I was feeling a little nervous but super excited. I loved meeting the stars, they were all so lovely admiring the dresses. Will I Am came over to us and he was blown away by the dresses. He loved them. I loved the whole atmosphere and excitement and it felt really special. The venue was spectacular and the film itself was great. Overall it was an amazing experience."
The pupils had a great weekend sightseeing all over London. They went to the London Dungeons, the National Art Museum and of course bought some fancy cupcakes in Harrods!
Grainne, Niall and Julie would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported them throughout the past year - their family and friends have been so lovely. They would also like to thank everyone who helped them fundraise for London; everyone who helped in the CCS Fashion Show was brilliant!
