Literacy Week Review

Speed Booking Literacy Week 2019Literacy Week 7th-10th May

With World Book Day on during the Mocks this year, the English department held a number of activities during the course of four days instead. One of these involved speed booking. TYF and TYC were speed dating with books. The aim of this was to spend two minutes with a partner explaining their chosen book and trying to encourage them to read that book. The timer would buzz after two minutes and each person had to move on to the next person and repeat the process. There was some great discussion about books in general. 71% said the speed booking exercise encouraged them to read more. That's a promising figure!

TY Presentation Night

It was a proud night for the TYs on Tuesday, 21st May as they were presented with their certificates at the end of year presentations. A trip down memory lane caused a few tears and a chorus of "Can we repeat TY?" The TYs showcased their work over the year, decorating the Aras with Junk Kouture dresses, wooden ornaments, and artistic artifacts fashioned over the last nine months. They finished with their own rendition of Riptide and The Fields of Athenry on ukuleles, which they admitted they'd been practicing quite a lot less than the performance suggested. The wee guitars went down a blast! Thanks to all pupils and staff involved in Transition Year for a wonderful year.

What a year! The pupils showcased their time in TY through a celebration of dance on Sunday 19th and Monday 20th May. 'Dancing to the Musicals' provided a platform for the TYs to apply their dancing moves and skills and they all rocked the Aras on both nights. Well done everyone.

The Annual Sports Awards took place on Friday, 17th May. The guest speaker on the day was Michael Murphy. While it was great to have a Donegal-based sporting icon in attendance, the real star of the show was our own Mr. John Farren, who received what was tantamount to a lifetime achievement award. Mr. Farren was always quick to credit pupils and staff for their efforts over the years, and time had finally arrived to repay the compliment. Mr. Farren appeared to fight back a tear as Mr. O'Donnell delivered an emotional speech recounting his accomplishments in CCS and the wider community. We would like to bid Mr. Farren a fond farewell as he moves beyond CCS, leaving behind the legacy of a long-awaited Ulster Senior Championship title. Thank you JF!
