This is Stand Up Week!...And Friday 15th November was LGBTI+ Awareness Day. The theme for this national event was "No one would have to come out if everyone chose to come in." School uniform jumpers were swapped for all the colours of the rainbow. CCS continues to fully embrace LGBTI+ pupils, typified by the outpouring of colour on Friday. Thanks to all pupils and staff involved.

You Can Be a H.E.R.O

Attendance Hero CCSAt the start of the year we launched our attendance initiative, the H.E.R.O campaign amongst our first year classes. Our aim is to encourage our pupils from the beginning to be Here Every day, Ready and On time. Good attendance is so important to their progress in school and studies have proven over the years that, those who attend well, do better in all aspects of school life. At the end of each month, all first years who fulfil the above criteria will have their names entered into a raffle. In each class there will be one HERO of the month drawn at random. These students will receive a voucher for the canteen or tuck shop in school. At the end of each term then, all first years who have shown themselves to be HEROes will be entered into a draw for a prize e.g A family trip to the cinema or a voucher for a family meal out. These prizes will be awarded at an assembly. Every month, students get a fresh start to be the HERO of the month for their class. Good luck everyone!

Mr. Colm Doherty made a return to the head of the class (for one day only) on Friday, 4th October for Junior Cert Results Day. Mr. Doherty congratulated the pupils on their results, while reminding them that results day is just a snapshot in time. What happens next is just as important. So keep at it! He also insisted that pupils take care during celebrations and look after each other as well as themselves. Thanks to Ms. Marie Therese Doherty (HSCL) for the cookies and capri suns. It was a nice way to end the week.

Paper Cups binned...Reusable Cups for Everyone!

Resuable Cups Carndonagh CS 2

The Reduce-Reuse-Recycle theme in CCS is about to step up a level with the introduction of reusable cups for every person in the school. Very soon there will be no throw-away cups available on campus, which is good news as a recent study by a group of pupils estimated that 1200 paper cups are binned every week. The school has invested in 'travel mug' style cups with lids for every pupil (and staff member who needs one). No cup, no coffee! That should ensure 100% usage. Pupils will be encouraged to wash/dry cups at home for use the following day. It's ambitious and won't be without teething problems, but if the discussion is convenience versus the environment, there can only be one winner. CCS is a Green School and will continue to take steps in the right direction. Now, would you like a nice cup of tea? Ah, go on...
