Fair Trade CCS 2014

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.

Martin Moloney Birdman

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!

Pope John Paul II Award 2014

Congratulations to Lisa Harkin, Breege McGeoghegan, Eamonn Harkin, Liam McGonigle, Fergal Bradley, Elaine McGonigle, Fiona Fagan, Fiona McCandless and Grace Connor, who received the Pope John Paul II Award at a ceremony in the Millennium Forum on Tuesday, 25th February. The award acknowledges pupil involvement in local parishes and communities. The pupils were joined by Fr. Francis Bradley, Archbishop Charles John Brown (Papal Nuncio) and Bishop Donal McKeown.

The ski trip album will undoubtedly be missing a few faces. It's impossible to get everyone in action on five square miles of mountain. If any pupils would like to add some photos to the Pec pod Sněžkou album, please call in to John Collins in the Library with a memory card or stick. No mobile phones please!
