Welcome to Carrick-on-Shannon Community School

The school was established in 1994 with the aim of providing a comprehensive post-primary education to all children of the community regardless of intellectual ability, religious background or family means. The building and its extensive grounds are located in Summerhill, just off the N4’s southern approach to the town.

What’s Happening:

Enrolment Evening

The excitement is building in the school. We are looking forward to welcoming our 1st Year class of 2019/ 2020 to the school for the first time this evening.

The evening will begin at 7pm and will run until 9.30pm.

Don't forget to bring your Enrolment Forms!

Staff Training Day

We are delighted to welcome Mr. Graham Powell to Carrick-on-Shannon Community School on Monday, 10th December 2018. This will be a training day for staff. 

Student Safety

It's always nice to get a lift to school and this leads to a lot of traffic at the school gate at certain times of the day.

We were very grateful for Leitrim County Council installing a new roundabout at the top of Summerhill. We respectfully ask that parents use this new roundabout when turning their cars in the mornings and the evenings to ensure the safety of all our students and other pedestrians.

Back to School

Every year we issue a letter to parents/ guardians with infomration relating to our opening dates, Book Rental Scheme etc. To find this year's Return To School Information Note, please click here.

The Book Rental Scheme Opt-In/ Opt-Out Form, which must be returned to the school, is also available via the above link.

'Use Your Brain Not Your Fists' Film Launch

We were privileged to attend the launch of the Use Your Brain Not Your Fists film in The Bush Hotel on the 27th April 2018.

The short film, by Leitrim Comhairle na nÓg, highlights the devastating consequences that can occur when a person uses their fists instead of their brains in a conflict situation. The film is dedicated to Shane Grogan and to the memory of Andrew Dolan. Both Andrew and Shane were victims of seperate unprovoked assaults while enjoying time out with their friends. Andrew died as a result of the assault while Shane was left with brain injuries. Both Shane's and Andrew's parents attended the launch and shared their personal stories with us.
