While the Camera Club theme for May could easily have been "Cloudy with a Chance of Rain", Mr. Gibbons decided to brighten up the photographic mood with "Spring Theme". The results were certainly a feast for the eyes as can be seen from the album. However, all photographic technicalities considered, the winner of May's Spring Theme was deemed to be Rachel Devlin with a professional quality snap of a red rose in bloom (including rain for authenticity purposes). Apologies to the Camera Club for the delay in publishing the photos. Next year's spring theme will be "May-hem"...
After a convincing qualifying round win in Letterkenny, the CCS Golf Team held their nerve to claim The Donegal Schools' Golf Championship title in Ballybofey. Playing in breezy conditions, the team was rewarded for consistent individual scoring during the final day's play. Ben Collins led the way with an individual winning score of 38 points (surely the 10 handicapper is heading for single figures this summer!). The CCS team managed to carve out a winning score of 162, out-scoring second placed Crana College by just 5 points. CCS carded different individual winners in each round of the competition, showing that the title was indeed a real team effort. Congratulations go to Gavin McLaughlin 5B, Karen McLaughlin 5F, Stephen McGonigle 4E, Conor McColgan 4F, Ben Collins 4F, Scott McElhinney TY, Oisin McGonigle 3F and DJ McGeoghan 3E.

Ten Second Year students attend the SciFest in LYIT on Friday, 15th May, accompanied by Ms. Siobhan Coll. It was a particularly successful day for two of the group. Laura Vilka and Niamh Doherty won the Junior Life Sciences Award. Well done to the girls and the group.
Transition Year pupils will tell you that it's completely unfair for the staff to have six professional footballers in their team, and maybe they're right. But on a special day at CCS, the Mark Farren Appeal was the overall winner. Friday, 15th May saw the TY Challenge Perpetual Trophy going to the grown-ups after a 4-2 victory. The teachers will have bragging rights AGAIN! Derry City FC Legends Donal O'Doherty, Donal O'Brien, Eddie McCallion, Ruaidhri Higgins, David McDaid and John McElroy were on hand to help promote the Mark Farren Appeal. Many, many thanks to the pros and ex-pros for supporting the event. Mark Farren's parents, Kathleen and Michael presented the trophy to the victorious staff team.
