You Can Be a H.E.R.O

Attendance Hero CCSAt the start of the year we launched our attendance initiative, the H.E.R.O campaign amongst our first year classes. Our aim is to encourage our pupils from the beginning to be Here Every day, Ready and On time. Good attendance is so important to their progress in school and studies have proven over the years that, those who attend well, do better in all aspects of school life. At the end of each month, all first years who fulfil the above criteria will have their names entered into a raffle. In each class there will be one HERO of the month drawn at random. These students will receive a voucher for the canteen or tuck shop in school. At the end of each term then, all first years who have shown themselves to be HEROes will be entered into a draw for a prize e.g A family trip to the cinema or a voucher for a family meal out. These prizes will be awarded at an assembly. Every month, students get a fresh start to be the HERO of the month for their class. Good luck everyone!

Mr. Colm Doherty made a return to the head of the class (for one day only) on Friday, 4th October for Junior Cert Results Day. Mr. Doherty congratulated the pupils on their results, while reminding them that results day is just a snapshot in time. What happens next is just as important. So keep at it! He also insisted that pupils take care during celebrations and look after each other as well as themselves. Thanks to Ms. Marie Therese Doherty (HSCL) for the cookies and capri suns. It was a nice way to end the week.

Paper Cups binned...Reusable Cups for Everyone!

Resuable Cups Carndonagh CS 2

The Reduce-Reuse-Recycle theme in CCS is about to step up a level with the introduction of reusable cups for every person in the school. Very soon there will be no throw-away cups available on campus, which is good news as a recent study by a group of pupils estimated that 1200 paper cups are binned every week. The school has invested in 'travel mug' style cups with lids for every pupil (and staff member who needs one). No cup, no coffee! That should ensure 100% usage. Pupils will be encouraged to wash/dry cups at home for use the following day. It's ambitious and won't be without teething problems, but if the discussion is convenience versus the environment, there can only be one winner. CCS is a Green School and will continue to take steps in the right direction. Now, would you like a nice cup of tea? Ah, go on...

School Uniform Update - August 2019

As a result of evaluating the school uniform and feedback we received throughout the year, we would like to inform you that, from August 2019, if a girl chooses to wear a skirt or pinafore, they must be knee length. If a student chooses to wear trousers, absolutely no jeggings or leggings should be worn to school.

From August, if a student comes to school not wearing the proper uniform they will be asked to go home and change. We would like your support in this.

As a school we pride ourselves on how positively our students represent CCS on all occasions. We would like to maintain this very positive image of the students in CCS.
