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.
