Open Night 2020 took place on Tuesday, 28th January. The Áras was at capacity to welcome incoming pupils and parents / guardians. Mrs. Marie Therese Doherty, Mr. John McGuinness and Mr. Liam Harkin spoke briefly about what prospective pupils can expect in academic terms over the next few years, while current pupils - Katelyn McDaid and Oran Raymond - talked about the fun stuff! The crowd then made their way to the New Tech to sample the atmosphere of being a pupil at CCS. The staff always put on a good show, with treats from the Home Ec. Dept., eye-opening Science experiments, hands-on engineering demos and prize quizzes at every table. Open Night 2020 was a great advert for Carndonagh Community School.

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!
