What a busy year it has been for the students involved in the JCSP. It was a fun filled, educational and productive year. Thanks to all the students who participated in all aspects of the programme.
Artist in the Classroom
This initiative focused on creative visual skills development where the artist worked for a short time with the group of students. The aim was to produce a piece of wall art that could then be exhibited in the school. The students worked on a theme and after a few weeks they all agreed on the design. They priced the plywood and we purchased 5 pieces of ply ( 8 X 4 ) along with Spray cans, protection masks, brushes, varnish, paper and paint. The students came up with the motto “ if you are not having fun there is no point doing it”. The students worked for a number of weeks on the project and completed their wall display before the Halloween break.
This is an opportunity for the parents and teachers to celebrate the achievements of the JCSP students. The Students from First, Second and Third year were involved. Class 3C organised the event. All Classes helped with the decoration of the coffee dock, Christmas tree, 3rd corridor and food. A lot of work goes into the Christmas Celebration and every year the feedback from the parents is very positive. Our guest speaker this year, Jason Black, gave an inspirational talk to all who attended.

TY Trip to Lansdowne Road photo album
On Thursday, 6th October, forty-five TY students set off from CCS for Ireland v Georgia. A quick pit-stop in the Blanchardstown Centre allowed the students to refuel before heading out to the Aviva Stadium for the World Cup qualifier. While the game was a poor spectacle, the students had a great time getting fully involved in the chants and cheers. Donegal native Seamus Coleman not only scored but managed to assist himself for the goal!!! The students were great ambassadors for the school and while it was late home on Friday morning (2am), the majority made it to school the following day. Well done all.
