Wellbeing Week took place in the school from January 23rd to 27th. Lots of activities took place during the week to help promote positive mental health among the entire school community. Karen Duggan from Jigsaw Donegal delivered a workshop to our senior students entitled "It's Time to Start Talking", while Declan Brennan and Jamie Harrington from Teen Line Ireland, a free phone and free text service dedicated to teenagers, addressed our Junior students. These talks received very positive feedback from both staff and students and we are very grateful to the respective organisations for taking the time to visit the school. A special word of thanks to our Transition Year students and Student Council for their help in organising the week. Many thanks also to CCS's new resident photographer, Laura Cobo Ibanez (TYC).
