The Annual Prizegiving Ceremony for academic and creative achievement took place in the Áras on Friday, 26th January. The guest speaker was past-pupil, Caroline McLaughlin, a senior associate at Callan Tansey Solicitors. Her attendance was fitting given that the Callan Tansey Dílseacht Award Bursary was one of the awards presented on the day. The photo album will be populated gradually over the course of the week.

Lighting of the Trees - Christmas 2017

CCS Christmas Trees 2017

Last year, Tony Lafferty lit the tree at the gym as part of our annual 'Day of Action'. Tony was at the switch again in 2017, this time co-hosting with Darragh Gallagher in light of the fact that there are TWO CCS trees this Christmas. The local hospice ward and The Irish Heart Foundation will definitely get a boost thanks to the efforts of Mr. John Farren, Mr. Con McMonagle, Mr. Sean McGeoghegan, and of course all those who contributed to the fund. While the trees are now bearing the fruits of the fundraiser, it's never too late to contribute. Just see one of the aforementioned members of staff to "buy a bulb". Bulbs cost €5. And remember, you're not REALLY buying a bulb, you're helping someone you probably know. Many thanks to all who have contributed so far.

Mock Trial Team Commended as Daniel Wins Top Lawyer

CCS on Trial Daniel McCormickCCS put in a brave shift at the Empire Mock Trial World Championships in New York; the team received several commendations from the judges. While we await the return of the team and the full rundown, we can confirm that Daniel McCormick scooped the Top Lawyer award...in the world! Not a bad day's work. We'd like to extend our admiration and congratulations to all the pupils, teachers, families and fundraisers who brought the whole thing together. The 2017 team have set the standard.
