CCS Receives Award for College Awareness Week Projects

Guidance Award 2017 2

On 11th May, Mr. Liam Harkin was invited to an awards ceremony in Trinity College Dublin where he was presented with an award for the two CCS projects in College Awareness Week 2016. Mr. Harkin was asked to deliver a presentation at the awards ceremony explaining the two projects. One project was called 'Alumni Alma Mater', which involved research by TY students into where all the teaching staff went to college. This was followed by the production of laminated posters with the relevant college logos which were placed on teachers’ doors. The second project was called 'Who Went Where?' This involved researching where the Leaving Cert class of 2016 went and what they were doing. This information was then matched up with their official school photograph and a display was mounted in the Mall.

Junior IMTA Donegal

Brónach Harkin 1D, Chaylee Greene 1D, Aine Monagle 1B, Dariona Gillen 1D, Mekhi Crumlish 1A (***2nd Place in Donegal***), Darragh Gilmore 1B

In March, fifty-seven First Year students completed the first round of the Junior IMTA competition. Six students progressed to the next level in St. Columba's College, Stranorlar on Friday, 12th May. The students represented CCS, competing against thirty other students from across Donegal. It was some day for Mekhi Crumlish 1A, who brought home a trophy for 2nd place in the county, narrowly missing out on first place. All the remaining students ranked very highly, and you can't take that away form them. Well done to all involved! We knew we could count on you...Mrs. Breda Doherty and Miss Sharon Coyle helped the students prepare for the competition and also accompained them to the event. It all added up to a very successful evening for the Maths Department in CCS.
