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.
The National Mock Trial Competition was held in the Criminal Courts of Justice on Saturday, 5th April 2014. The team comprised 18 students - 4 barristers/1 solicitor (Emer Sweeney, Mary Doherty, Martin Fiorentini and Brendan Diver), a tipstaff/registrar (Kate Devlin), 1 defendant (Claire Doherty), 5 witnesses (Éimear Toland, Ciaran White, Danielle McLaughlin), one Garda (Shay Rodgers) and one elderly lady, a Mrs Sammy Black (Mary Devlin)! (And of course wee Charlie!) We would like to extend our gratitude to Garda Séan McLaughlin who very kindly lent us his uniform. We won't mention any names, in case we get him into trouble! Oops!!! There were also 3 full-time jurors (Shauna Craig, Claire Friel and Karen Mathews), a court reporter (Ella McDaid), a TV reporter (Hannah McColgan), a court room artist (Aisling O'Kane) and a court room photographer (Aimée Moore). The students owe a huge debt of gratitude to Mr. Donal McGuinness B.L. for his advice and his time on the eve of the competition. Thank you, Donal! All the pupils gave 100% - barristers and witnesses alike! You did us proud!
Tuesday, 6th May - Not content with an Ulster Cup, the First Year boys soccer squad have now secured a berth in the All-Ireland First Year Soccer Final. Under the unrivalled mentorship of Mr. Liam Monagle, the lads have steamrolled the opposition so far this season, culminating in a 3-0 victory in the All-Ireland semi-final against Coláiste Rís, Dundalk. The Final will take place on Wednesday, 14th May against either De La Salle College, Waterford or Calasanctius College, Oranmore (Venue TBA). We've watched enough football over the years to avoid complacency...but we dare to dream!
