The Transition Year Info Night (for Third Year pupils considering TY in September 2020) has been rescheduled for Tuesday, 10th March at 7pm.
Twelve Months of Irish Traditions and Superstitions - a booklet compiled and illustrated by Amy Mc Gonigle TYB. A great read, a great gift and a great preservation of our past. Cost is €10 with proceeds being donated to local charities.
Copies are available in Catriona's Newsagents, Centra and the Post Office (Clonmany).
On Friday, 13th December, the TYs hosted a coffee morning in the Aras. As well as the tae, coffee and cookies, the pupils also had bucket loads of crafty Christmas ornaments for sale, along with rows of sweets and treats. With the Christmas tunes blaring and the Christmas jumpers flying about the place, it was the first real sign of Christmas in CCS. No one's complaining!
The first TY cohort headed off to Rosscor on 21st October for their two-night Residential. Upon arrival the students were faced with their first challenge - making their bed, which required putting on a duvet cover and a pillow slip. Some were naturals while others were obviously first-timers. Beds made and it was off to get ready for activity 1 - kayaking and water trampolining. Day 2 Activity - bus drive to Mullaghmore where the TYs did pier jumping, swimming and jumping off a rather high platform. Ms. Farren was quite happy to observe and look after personal belongings. (Well someone had to do it!) Afternoon activity saw the TYs climb a hill although some did refer to it as a mountain - it was a small hill! After dinner all students gathered around the camp fire, singing, dancing and toasting marshmallows. The zipline in the dark through the forest was quite a scary experience, and one not to be repeated. Great bunch and a wonderful three days. Thanks to Sean, Shannon and Glenn. Also to the leaders in Rosscor and of course our wonderful chef.
