On Wednesday afternoon, 25th May, one of the country's most highly-rated sportsmen visited CCS for the Annual Sports Awards. The "Man From the Glen" addressed all the pupils involved in school sports. During his speech, Michael reiterated the key ingridient for his development as an individual and a sportsperson...Focus. He advised young people to surround themselves with positivity and to concentrate fully on the matter at hand, at that moment in time, whether it's sport or study.

Staff Teach Pupils a Lesson in Gaelic Football

For the last two class periods on Friday, 2nd October, the majority of the school population surrounded the GAA pitch for the annual Staff v TY match. Two versions of the match report are currently being written. However, what's clear is that the final score was "roughly" 2-12 to 3-06 in favour of the Staff.
