Pupils and staff at CCS are eagerly awaiting the arrival of friends from St. Charles, Missouri. The itinerary is ready and the weather has been well warned! For the time being, take a look back at the October trip to St. Charles.
On Monday, 24th February, CCS inaugurated a two-week Fair Trade drive with the aim of encouraging Carndonagh to become a Fair Trade town. The initiative is led by Denise McCool (Inishowen Development Partnership) and Patsy Toland (Self Help Africa), and supported in CCS by Ms. Nabla McGeehin, Ms. Louise Hannon and Transition Year. Charlie McConalogue was in attendance to formally open Fair Trade Fortnight in the school, where among many activities, TY pupils will be selling Fair Trade foods and goods at lunchtimes.
What lifelong falconer Martin Moloney doesn't know about birds of prey, nobody knows! On Wednesday, 26th February, Third Year and TY pupils were fortunate enough to receive a class visit from Martin, joined by some of his remarkable feathered friends. The pupils got a brief but eye-opening lesson on birds of prey in Ireland, before getting up close with Rambo the buzzard, Barney the barn owl, and a friendly long-eared owl. Pupils and staff were captivated by the magnificent creatures, with a number of the pupils tentatively taking the opportunity to put the falconer glove on. The exhibition was certainly a valuable experience for the pupils, who might now be a little more inclined to look to the skies above Inishowen. Thanks again to Martin, Rambo, Barney and friend for their visit!
