Report by Alysia Brattin Loftus

On Monday 17th December 2018, our LCA class, 5H organised a first year futsal tournament. To do this we each had to play a number of roles such as a coach, referee, reporter, photographer, score keeper or equipment manager. We wanted to do an event with first years because they’re an easier group of students to get out of class as they don’t have as many exams. We also wanted the junior students to feel comfortable with senior students in a fun way.

Picking the sport would be hard, not knowing what the first years were interested in. We decided to do a survey. Each first year student participating in our tournament received a survey where they could vote for which sport they would like to take place. They also got to vote to see if they wanted prizes based on teams that won the most games, that scored the most goals or that showed the best sportsmanship and fair play.

Past Pupil Treasa Makes Team of the Year

Treasa Doherty All-Star AwardBelated congratulations to past pupil, Treasa Jenkins (Doherty) who scooped the right corner-back spot on the All-Ireland Team of the Year in early December. She was one of only two Ulster footballers to break into the team, no small challenge given that Dublin and Cork predictably dominated proceedings. Treasa was integral to Donegal's breakthrough season, helping guide the ladies to their first All-Ireland semi-final where they pushed Cork all the way to the bitter end, sadly losing out while looking the better team. Next year! Treasa was special guest at the CCS Sports Awards in May. CCS would like to wish her all the best in 2019.

Charlie McConalogue CCS Visit

On Monday 26th November our local T.D. Charlie McConalogue visited the school and gave a very informative talk to the students from the Politics & Society class, ( CCS is offering the new Politics & Society Leaving Cert Programme. ) on the law-making process. He outlined the different stages a bill goes through in both houses of the Oireachtas until it eventually becomes an Act / Law. He gave the students a very real insight into the process and the obstacles a bill may face in the process. He also talked to the students about Social Contracts and students had the opportunity to put their questions to him.

The constant door knocking and favours have finally paid off. The TYs had their annual Craft Fayre on Friday, 7th December. It was a bustling hive of activity offering authentic baking alongside a mix of hand-crafted goods and products. The hot chocolate and crepes proved very popular. The day was a huge success and well done to all involved. The Enterprise teachers will have to start thinking for next year!! Many thanks to Cody Horan Kenny (TYE) for the attached batch of Craft Fayre photos. There are LOADS more to follow from the TY photography team. Well done all.
