CCS are delighted to host a Pilot Driver Education Programme with our LCA students, in conjunction with Donegal County Council and Pro-social Drivers Programme and funded by the North Inishowen School Completion Programme.
There are three main pillars within the school:
(1) Pro-social Drivers Councillors
(2) Presentations from Gardaí
(3) Practical preparation and theory preparation from Driving Instructor, Dessie Kearney
We believe this is an important initiative in educating young people, before they start driving, in keeping our roads safe.The Programme will be evaluated at the end and will inform the Pro-social Drivers Programme and Donegal County Council on the possible roll-out of the initiative to other schools and youth organisations. We wish all our LCA students undertaking the Programme success in this valuable opportunity.
Owen McConway, Deputy Principal, Carndonagh Community School.

Senior Pupils Fisheries College Visit photo album
On Wednesday 30 November, 22 budding fishermen accompanied by Mr. Liam Harkin headed for the National Fisheries College in Greencastle where they were met by Karl Vekins, Marine Safety Tutior who brought the group on a fascinating two-hour tour of the college. The students saw all of the very impressive facilities, engaged in firefighting duties, donned survival suits and life jackets, and tried out the extremely realistic simulators where some students got a chance to navigate their virtual boat in a storm force 10 gale off the Scottish coastline. As thes photographs clearly illustrate, the students loved the day and many of them are now firmly setting their sights on completing either a Fishing Vessel Engineer course in Greencastle or getting their first Skipper's Ticket.
