Donations to Charities
In keeping with the ethos of the school, students presented the proceeds from a number of fundraising events, to local charitable organisations so as to support their work. From having cake sales to not using social media our students shows that it is important to think of others.
Our students recently raised €300 to support the work of ARC House in Cork which provides support services to cancer patients and their families. Under the guidance of Ms McGrath, the students undertook a 24 hour no phone and social media challenge. Well done to all involved.
Best of luck, and many thanks, to Nigel Moloney and his staff in CarePlus Pharmacy in the new Carrigaline Primary Care Centre. As our number of sports teams increases it was great to be presented with a fully stocked first aid bag by Nigel.
Presentation of Hampers
The members of the school’s Leo Club made a presentation to the local Lions Club of a number of food hampers. The Leos asked students to bring in various food items and a number of hampers were made which will be distributed to needy families in the area. The incoming president of Carrigaline Lions Club, Eoin Stack, along with the secretary, Kieran McNamee, visited the school to receive the hampers and thanked the Leo Club and the students for their generosity. A special word of thanks was also made in recognition of the work that Ms Twomey does with the club.

Science Week 2017
Science Week took place this year from 12-19 November and there were a number of events in our school to mark the week. Events included a rocket-making workshop, poster competition, 3D cell competition and science quiz. We were amazed at the innovative thinking and creativity demonstrated by our students during the week.
Our first year science students welcomed pupils from Educate Together primary school to experience second level science on Friday 19 November which was a great way to end a very successful Science Week 2017.
