We look for­ward to wel­com­ing our par­ents and guardians of Fifth year stu­dents at our forth­com­ing par­ent-teacher-stu­dent and men­tor­ing meet­ing, on Thurs­day 31st Jan­uary. Each stu­dent has been as­signed a teacher men­tor, to help them fo­cus on their third-level choices and aca­demic and per­sonal progress. The fo­cus of the meet­ing on Thurs­day will be to es­tab­lish each stu­dent’s in­ter­est ar­eas for CAO, and to fo­cus on how they can work to achieve the points they re­quire through study and per­sonal goals.

The li­brary has re­cently been re­stocked with a huge range of new ti­tles, which are prov­ing very pop­u­lar with stu­dents. CAMO­GIE TRAIN­ING

The Tran­si­tion Year Bank ' Scrump­tious Sav­ings' was off­i­cally launched by Deirdre Healy AIB and CCA prin­ci­pal Mr Eiveres, on Mon­day 21st Jan­uary.

The team of six stu­dents con­sist­ing of Alan­nah Bel­lamy, Sinead O'Connor, Conor Eivers, Laura Flood, Katie Cole­man and Cil­lian Molloy have done an out­stand­ing job pro­mot­ing bank­ing and sav­ing by stag­ing a pro­mo­tion day for all first, sec­ond and tran­si­tion year stu­dents. They or­gan­ised in­for­ma­tion dis­plays, com­pe­ti­tions, ex­er­cises and food to cel­e­brate the launch of this year’s bank. Their theme is based around the con­cept of Char­lie and the Choco­late Fac­tory and links in with the num­ber 10, the an­niver­sary of our school. The bank is now open ev­ery Thurs­day at lunch time for open­ing of ac­counts and on­go­ing sav­ings. MOCK EX­AMS

Our Fifth and Sixth year Leav­ing Cer­tifi­cate Ap­plied stu­dents were in­ter­viewed by ex­ter­nal ex­am­in­ers this week as part of their con­tin­u­ous as­sess­ment.
