World Record Achievement for Irish Department

Dé Céadaoin, an dara lá de Dheireadh Fómhair, bhí ócáid an-speisialta ar siúl i bPobalscoil Charraig Uí Leighin. Ghlac grúpa mór dalta páirt i ‘Comhrá 24/7’, cur-iarracht domhanda don chomhrá leanúnach is faide as Gaeilge. Bhí seachtain chomhrá ar siúl ar fud an domhain agus rinne na daltaí uair a’ chloig mar chuid den chur-iarracht. Bhí an comhrá le feiceáil beo ar Twitter mar bhí ceamara greasáin ag taifeadadh sa leabharlann. Bhí gach duine ar fheabhas ar fad agus bhí spraoi agus craic ag gach duine. Tar éis an chomhrá bhí sú agus cáca milis ar fáil! Bhí an-rath ar an ócáid agus bhí na daltaí an-bhródúil mar tá Gaeilge do-chreidte acu! Go raibh míle agaibh a mhúinteoirí agus a dhaltaí. Gaeilge abú!

Commencement of new BUILDING PROJECT

The DoES has appointed Mythen Construction, Foulksmills, Co. Wexford,, as the construction team for one of Munster’s biggest construction projects at Carrigaline Community School.  The project has just commenced.

The architectural design team for the project is led by Kelly Barry O’Brien Whelehan Architects, Summer Hill, Cork,

The project will involve the demolition of the existing Physical Education hall and the construction of a new modern full size P.E. hall in its place.  It will also include the construction of a 3 storey extension on the by-pass road side of the campus. This state of the art extension will greatly enhance existing facilities.  Our school will have 14 new classrooms, new science facilities, enhanced career guidance facilities, new ICT facilities, new engineering facilities, new social areas, student circulation areas and additional administration offices as well as new toilet blocks and locker areas.  A specialist ASD Resource Centre will also be developed as part of the enhanced facilities.

The Home Page will update the community on developments as they proceed.
