As part of College Awareness Week (23-29 November), Transition Year pupils were set the task of making "alma mater posters" for all members of staff. The posters are currently displayed on doors around the school. Mr. Liam Harkin explains - "In conjunction with our TY students we are planning a project where we will first of all survey all teachers in the school and find out what their alma mater was. Then we will obtain the individual university and college crests for these institutions and create individual laminated posters for each teacher’s classroom door, indicating the teacher’s name and where they went to college."

Transition Year Class A, with the help of the entire school, have raised €500 for the #LiveLife Donal Walsh Foundation. The Transition Year pupils wrote an open letter to Donal's father, Fionnbar, outlining the motivation behind their fundraising. The pupils have been very proactive in terms of mental health awareness and would like to acknowledge the esteem that both Donal and Fionnbar are held in at Carndonagh Community School...
Please find enclosed a cheque, representing the money raised throughout our “Mental Health Week" which took place in Carndonagh Community School from the 12th to the 16th October 2015. We really appreciated your talk to us about Donal and it encouraged us to make an effort for his charity - "The Live Life Foundation." We have also created a mural in our Coffee Dock to promote awareness and if you log on to our website - www.carndonaghcs.ie - hit photo gallery at the top right of screen and scroll onto 2015- 2016 Photo Album, you will be able to view this and other images of our Mental Health Week. It was a lot of hard work but very enjoyable and we are happy that we were able to do it.
We wish you well with the Foundation and keeping Donal's memory and all he stood for alive.
Best wishes and a Happy Christmas from:
Transition Year Class A and all at Carndonagh Community School
