Champions! - The Callum Report & Full Highlights

Massive Deflections 'n' Sweet Connections
“no shoulda’s, no coulda’s and no woulda’s”
Wednesday, 25th April 2018

5.00am – The alarm bell rings. I feel I’m only after getting into the bed. I am as mad as a box of frogs. Usually the only time I’m up this early is if I’m falling in the door from Tul Na Ri or up to use the toilet. It’s too early for me. Head’s busting.

6.30am - A 15 minute run in the road listening to Seamus Fildara reminiscing about the time he met Big Tom in Culdaff Arms. The boys all gather in the Coffee Dock to we get a head count, a drop of tea and a scratch. For the second time this year we have no Wee Corey McBride. Nobody can understand where he went as Lorcan Bradley swore he saw him earlier on. It turns out he was trapped in a cubicle and couldn’t reach the door handle.

7.00am - Kevin Bradley twists the key of the bus and rallies out the gate. A bus packed with nervous men and a horrible smell of Old Spice deodorant coming from Brendan Doherty. Every traffic light on the Glentogher road is red. A horrible start to the day and to make the morning even worse I have Oisin Hession in one ear talking about all the trophies Clonmany FC won in the 90s and in my other ear is Daniel McCallion snoring.

A Celebration of Reading in CCS

Drop Everything And Read 2018National Drop Everything and Read Day photo album

On Friday 27th April, when the clock struck noon, students and staff of CCS stopped what they were doing and took time to read between 12-12:20pm. The main focus of this National D.E.A.R Challenge was to draw attention to the importance of reading for pleasure. The photographs captured on the day show lots of smiling faces indicating that the students thoroughly enjoyed this reading experience. Well done to all involved. A special word of thanks goes to The Art Department, Eadaoin Doherty (TYA) and Sinead Diver (TYC) for creating the lovely photo frame. Remember “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Dr Seuss.

Fáinne Awards 2018

Fainne CCS

Fáinne Awards photo album

Over the last few weeks, our current first years have been taking part in the Fáinne Awards. Wearing a Fáinne symbolises your link to the Irish language. An Fáinne is worn to show that you are able to and are willing to speak Irish. The Silver Fáinne is suitable for those who have a basic ability in Irish. The Gold Fáinne indicates that you are a fluent Irish speaker. The 'Cúpla Focal' badge is available to those with a small amount of Irish who are proud of the cúpla focal they have. We had a great uptake in the Fáinne Awards with approximately 90 Fáinne Airgids and Cúpla Focals handed out. That’s nearly 10% of the school! We also had 4 talented senior students awarded the Fáinne Óir. Overall it was a great success. Maith sibh go léir! As the old saying goes 'Beatha teanga í a labhairt!'
