On 26th May, nationally renowned pianist and former student, Nadene Fiorentini performed for pupils and staff in Room 406. Nadene's star has been rising on the national scene over the past few years and she has consistently received awards and accolades for her remarkable talent. She is currently completing a PHD in Music Performance with the Royal Irish Academy of Music. Our students recently watched Nadene perform at the University of Ulster Magee, and she has performed on a number of occasions in the National Concert Hall in Dublin. Nadene also recently released a solo CD. CCS wished Nadene all the best in her studies and future performances.
www.SeeChange.ie - "Changing Minds about Mental Health, One Conversation at a Time"
You may have noticed pupils from Carndonagh CS recently wearing green ribbons as part of their uniform. The Green Ribbon Campaign gave pupils and staff the opportunity to use a simple symbol to raise awareness of a serious issue that could potentially affect us all. Experiencing a mental health problem is simply part of the ups and downs of life and can happen to anyone. Unfortunately, breaking the silence that surrounds mental health is not as easy as it sounds. That silence makes seeking help harder, and the experience of being unwell much harder. It doesn't have to be this way. Don't suffer in silence...
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.
