Pinch, punch start of the month! Gringotts Bank (TY) kicked off March with a splash of colour by holding a 5k colour run at CCS in aid of Jigsaw. On Wednesday, 1st March, First, Second and Transition Year students were seen racing around the school in white, dodging buckets of paint being thrown at them by a few gleeful teachers. The run managed to raise a great sum of €550 for Jigsaw, a very worthy cause that our school has been working very hard for all year. Thanks to everyone who took part and helped with organising and picture-taking. We couldn’t have done it without you. – Gringotts Bank

On Friday, 17th February, schools across Ireland went orange for Cycle Against Suicide (#SchoolsGoOrange). CCS went a step further by organising a "Bow-tie-ful day". Over 600 bow ties were made and the majority sold by First Year pupils Caitlin Monagle, Mary Mullen and Aine McKinney. The money raised from the sale of the bow ties will be donated to Jigsaw, an organisation providing mental health advice and support for young people. The activities are part of an overall drive to achieve Ambassador School Status with Cycle Against Suicide. Many thanks to Laura Cobo Ibanez and Mrs. Yvonne O'Brien for the photography.
