Amazing Brains (Third Years) - Tuesday, 24th January

Amazing BrainsThird Year Drive for Results...

Workshop for Junior Certificate pupils. All third year pupils will attend a workshop, "Drive for Results" delivered by Amazing Brains (www.amazingbrains.ie) on Tuesday, 24th January, during class time. The cost is normally €6.50 per student, but this will be subsidised by the school, and our 3rd years only have to pay €3 each. This workshop will help your child to develop excellent study skills, as they approach their Junior Certificate. Students will discover the merits of active learning, and the importance of perseverance and a 'can do' attitude! It is important that all students attend on the day. Students are asked to bring €3 to their SPHE teacher or Ms Mary Lafferty, on/before 20th January.

Dear Parents / Guardians,
Please remind your child today and for the coming months to be EXTRA CAREFUL when getting on and off the buses in the mornings and evenings as the dark and wet weather increase the chances for accidents. Please advise your son / daughter not to cross the road when they get off the bus until the bus has driven away, and to check for traffic in both directions before crossing.

Junior Cert Results Day 2016

Junior Cert A-Grades 2016

Junior Cert Results Day photo album

It was a particularly happy and successful day in CCS on Wednesday, 14th September. Congratulations to all of our pupils who received their Junior Cert results. Pictured is a group of pupils who amassed fifty Higher Level A-grades between them (one of whom achieved a clean sweep of 11 A-grades). There's no mystery in the achievement. The recipe for success remains being at school every day, bringing commitment to studies, and maintaining an all-round balance between study and extra-curricular activities.

Judging by the exchanges between pupils and staff yesterday, it's obvious that pupils acknowledge the great efforts made by their teachers and parents, who always encourage pupils to do their best.
