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!'

The post-match report will have a lot to say about preparation, camaraderie, honest effort, Inishowen generosity and a SUPERB pass-and-move performance from CCS. (And if it's written by Callum Harley, it'll also have some hilarious one-liners...) There'll be extended highlights available by the long weekend. For the time-being, enjoy the 5-minute digest of another great day for sport in Carndonagh Community School. Congrats once again to Mr. Cavanagh and his All-Ireland Champions.

All Ireland Senior Soccer Squad 2018

Senior Soccer - All Ireland Final Prep (photo album)

The senior soccer class of 2018 will seek to summon the spirit of 2016 when they take to the Whitehall pitch on Wednesday. The lads have brushed aside all-comers until now, but they know that nothing can be taken for granted as the final hurdle nears. Mr. Martin Cavanagh knows the score at this stage, having guided the seniors to glory two years ago. So, once again, nothing has been left to chance. On Tuesday, all squad members reported to the Ballyliffin Lodge for a therapeutic hour in the Spa complex. With legs relaxed, the boys moved to the dining room for dinner. It was back to work after that, with Finn Harps manager Ollie Horgan taking charge of a brief but hugely informative training session. But it was his post-training speech that will no doubt ring loudest in the ears of the current squad. "Tomorrow is about true camaraderie. School football...there's nothing else like it in the game...at ANY level. This is as good as it gets. Don't let it pass you by." And with that, there is only one more word to be said...Ready!

Mr. Cavanagh, the senior soccer squad and travelling fans would like to offer a huge thanks to Doherty Centra (Muff), The Ballyliffin Lodge and Spa, Inishowen Tours (Noel Doherty) and, once again, Ollie Horgan for their invaluable support in the lead-up to the All-Ireland Final.
