Dear Parents/Guardians,


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome your son / daughter  back to CCS for the year ahead. 3rd Year holds many challenges for students, and you will face more classroom based assessments and of course the Junior Certificate itself. With continued effort and by working in a spirit of togetherness with your teachers, you will achieve to your potential.

  • Code of Behaviour and our policy statements on Anti-Bullying and ICT Acceptable Use Policy The Board of Management requests that all parents discuss the key points raised in our ‘Code of Behaviour’ / ‘Anti-bullying‘ policies with your children and retain them for reference. As is our practice, parents and pupils will sign a school ‘Code of Behaviour’ agreement form at the commencement of the new academic year, which will include a list of banned items.
  • General school information – please give particular attention to our policy on mobile phones and electronic devices

Yours sincerely,
