In August, our friends from St. Charles, Missouri arrived in Carndonagh following a tour of the country. Their week-long Inishowen stop was the finale of an adventure that took them from Dublin, through Cork and Galway, and onwards to the northwest. The aim of the visit was to solidify the connections that have already been established between St. Charles High School and Carndonagh Community School. Carla O'Dell, one of the visiting group's chief organisers, expressed great satisfaction that the links between the schools have now expanded to include the wider areas of St. Charles and Inishowen. The formalities included a welcome evening and barbecue in Carndonagh CS, several tours of the locality, and a municipal meeting of visitors, CCS staff and local political representatives. The meeting was ably chaired by Aideen Doherty. The twinning is in the early stages, but with further exchange trips already on the horizon, there's no doubt that the links and friendships that have already been made can only become stronger.

The Gallery is a constantly growing collection of photos of day-to-day activity at Carndonagh CS. However, it's generally not possible to cover all events both in and away from the school. Pupils and staff are asked to assist with the photography as often as possible. All efforts will be acknowledged on the website. Several cameras are available in the library and can be requested at short notice. Photos taken on personally owned cameras can also be submitted by memory card/stick or email. Please note that camera phones are banned in Carndonagh Community School and should not be used for photography either within the school or on school trips.
