The Board of Management of CARNDONAGH COMMUNITY SCHOOL invites applications from eligible candidates within current Teaching Staff for the following posts:
1. Post of ‘Assistant Principal’ (two vacant permanent posts)
2. Programme Co-ordinator at Assistant Principal level in Carndonagh Community School
Mass in memory of Fr. Kevin McKenna will be held in the school (Áras) on the evening of Tuesday 3rd June at 7.00p.m. Fr. Andy Dolan will officiate.
Fr. McKenna was the principal of Carndonagh Community School from 1973 to 1991. He had been principal of Carndonagh College from 1971 to 1973 prior to the amalgamation of the Convent, College and Vocational secondary schools to form Carndonagh Community School. In 1973 the Community School was established to provide for 840 pupils but the uptake in second level education saw the enrolment increase to 1,600 pupils creating what became at one stage the largest secondary school in Ireland.
The popular Transition Year Dance Show hits the floor in the Áras on Thursday, 22nd May. Tickets are limited as it's a "one night only" show. Tickets can be purchased from the school - Adults €8; Students €4. Show starts 8pm. The dance show is a real extravaganza of light and sound, with all Transition Year pupils taking part...Seriously, it's one not to miss it!
Following on from discussions with parents, teachers and Board of Management we are reviewing the running of the 5th year Formal. Last year the school felt that students were exposed to an unacceptable level of danger after they left the teacher-supervised function in the hotel. The 5th Year Formal is run under the CCS name and we would not be fulfilling our duty of care if we do not address this. We cannot run the Formal if the same level of danger is likely. We are asking for your opinion on the conditions, under which, the school will run the 5th Year Formal as an official CCS Function. We will close the Survey on Wednesday evening.
