JCSP (September 2016)

Congratulations to class 3C on their fantastic Junior Cert results. The hard work finally paid off and well done to all the teachers and students involved in the programme for the last two years. The students have now moved into senior cycle, following different programmes - LCA, TY and 5th Year Leaving Cert.


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.
Christmas Celebration

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 (Ireland v Georgia)

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.

Senior Girls Soccer - CCS 2-0 Deele College

CCS Deele LadiesThe senior ladies kicked-off the season with a comprehensive 2-0 victory over Deele College on Wednesday, 5th October. A fantastic team-worked goal finished by Shania McGonigle, and an own-goal were enough to see the ladies through. The scoreline may have read 2-0, but as Mourinho himself said this week, "It could have been 3-0 or 4-0 at half-time, 6-0 at the end of the game, but the result was 2-0; that's football". It was a real team performance from start to finish. CCS stopped Deele crossing the halfway line in the first half, with only a couple of opposition raids in the second. The squad can be proud of their performance as they look forward to their final group match next week against Milford. With news filtering through that local rivals Moville have pulled out of the competition, the girls are more focused than ever, believing that this is their year. If they can replicate a performance like Wednesday's next time out, they'll find themselves in another Ulster Semi-final.

The Annual European Day of Language took place on Friday, 30th October. The Canteen was once again decked out with signature dishes from around Europe (and the world). The more adventurous among the pupils got stuck into snails, frog legs and kangaroo. Impressively, a whole lobster also made an appearance on the menu. It was a fine spread that intrigued the pupils, though many were cautious and a few were just plain squeemish. Overall, however, it was a day of cultural appreciation.
