Pictured is first year student Aishling Doherty Guy who was recently awarded top prize at this year’s closing ceremony of Read DL. Read DL is a county-wide reading movement, designed to bring the people of Donegal together by collectively reading the same book.
The aims of the Read DL project are to:
• Improve literacy skills and foster a love of reading;
• Entice people, young and old, to read more and;
• Encourage the entire community to read the same book, share ideas and to broaden and expand their viewpoints.
Students in the participating secondary schools across Donegal were invited to write a short story on the theme "Stories are wild creatures,” the monster said. “When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?” Aishling’s story was placed first and her wonderful entry is here for you to read. Enjoy!

Past-pupil, Niall Kelly, recently visited CCS Art Department to give students an insight into studying fashion design at University. He also discussed his recent success at being selected as Student Judge for Bank of Irelands Junk Kouture. The students were more than impressed with Niall's achievements and we hope to see his unique creations on the catwalks of London, Milan and Paris very soon!
