We celebrated Fair Trade Week last week in CCS. What better way to kick-start the event than by a presentation by Mr Patsy Toland from Self-Help Africa? The Coffee Dock, bedecked with balloons in the FT colours, posters, banners and bunting was home for the week to the FT Crêperie girls: Niamh Grant TYC, Aoife Hands TYC, Kiara Callaghan TYB, Tegan McDaid TYD, Megan McCreanor TYC, Clare McCarron TYA and Tara Kelly TYD. The girls gave up their break times and lunchtimes to cook for the hungry masses but managed to get in a bit of dance practice for their Paddy’s Day routine behind the counter too!!! Thanks to all the pupils who helped spread the Fair Trade message with the shoppers in Supervalu during Fair Trade Week: TYA - Geraldine Brennan, Shauna McBride, Catherine Diver, Sarah Monagle, Kim McCloskey, Alannah Shovlin, Clare McCarron Shauna McLaughlin, Aoife Houghton Tia McLaughlin & Casey Cavanagh; TYB - Cathy Doherty, Gemma McCormick, Rebecca McCarron, Bethany O’Leary; TYC - Kate Gallagher; TYD - Aishling McKinney and Áine McCallion.
To mark the 20th anniversary of FT in Ireland, there was an event called the Big Breakfast organised for Saturday, 5th March in the Colgan Hall. Local Carndonagh businesses were able to demonstrate their ongoing commitment to Fair Trade by supplying breakfast made up entirely of Fair Trade produce. TY girls, under the supervision and guidance of Ms Caroline Gallagher and Ms McIntyre, baked delicious FT goodies and served them at the CCS stand in the Colgan Hall on the day. Delicious Banana Bread, Chocolate Brownies, Tea Brack, Cup Cakes and Coffee Cake were among the delicacies on offer. To TYC’s Micheala Donaghy, TYD’s Holly Moore, Aishling McKinney, Paula McElhinney and Chloé Donaghy – a HUGE thank you!!!! Four ex-TYs Aoife Doherty, Cliona Ivers, Emma Doherty and Lydia Johnson - key players in CCS’s successful application to become a Fair Trade school last year - were also at the event as ambassadors of CCS. On Thursday, 10th March Oisin Bowyer TYC and Maria Farren TYD were exemplary representatives of CCS at the Ladder Workshop on Development Education Training with Mr Patsy Toland at Carndonagh Council offices.
Congratulations to Michaela Harkin 4B, who was elected to represent the four students who received an A-grade in their Higher Level Business Studies in June 2015. The students are Savena Crossan (4E), Chloe Donaghy (4A), Michaela Harkin (4B) and Sarah Monagle (TYA). Michaela, accompanied by her parents and Mrs Lorraine McDaid, attended a presentation ceremony at NUI Maynooth on Tuesday 9th February where she received a certificate of achievement for the school along with individual certificates for the other students. Well done to the four girls and keep up the great work!
Well done also to the group of eight Junior Certificate students who took part in the regional section of the Business Studies quiz, that took place in Letterkenny IT in November. They were Sally McKenna, Aisling McCarron, Rory McIlroy, Brigid Doherty, Ciaran Doherty, Ellen Simmons, Shaun Hirrell and Aidan Doherty. The students were accompanied by their teachers Ms. Emma Doherty and Mrs Mary Harkin. They did lots of preparation and extra classes at lunch-time with their teachers, so thanks for all the effort. They did the school proud!
Congratulations to Class 1B, under the tuition of Ms Roisin Diver, that took part in the ‘Future Me’ 6-week programme in association with AIB Bank. They covered the following topics - current accounts, budgeting, ways of banking and many more. The local Bank Manager from AIB came to the school to present the certificates. Well done 1B!
Ongoing congratulations to the Transition Years, under the supervision of Mr. James Humphries, who are working tirelessly at their Build-a-bank stand at lunchtimes in the technology building.
