U16 Girls GAA v Coláiste Ailigh photo album

The U16 girls took on a strong, attacking side in Coláiste Ailigh on Tuesday, 23rd November. Both teams had difficulties on a sodden pitch. Ailigh ran out winners in the end, although the CCS ladies put in a good performance. That wraps things up for the U16s. The Management would like to thank all the girls for their dedication to both training and matches since September.

Weekly Maths Puzzle - Puzzle 4 (Sponsored by Banba!)

BanbaHave a go at the following puzzle to win yourself a voucher for a hot chocolate and a tray bake in the delicious Café Banba!! Answers (including name and class) to be posted in the answer box at the Coffee Dock.

Mr Doherty was exactly 5 years older than his wife and they had two children, who were twins and went to Carndonagh Community School. One evening, one of the twins (who had just been given a calculator) announced that if you multiplied together the parents' ages, and then added together the twins' ages, and divided one result by another, the answer was 57 exactly.

How old was Mr Doherty?

Good luck!!

Life since leaving Carndonagh Community School

We are interested in what people have done since leaving school. We would like our Chronicle to reflect the great variety of stories that our past pupils have to tell - from the ordinary, to the extraordinary, to the bizarre, and everything in between.

One past pupil has told us of his journey from Leaving Cert Applied to running his own business; another has recounted her work in Wormwood Scrubs Prison; yet another has described his experiences on an aid convoy to Palestine that was impounded by the Israelis. EVERYONE has a story to tell. Please tell us yours…
