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 on Summerhill, just off the N4’s southern approach to the town.

What’s Happening:

School to 5K

Our annual School to 5K event took place on Friday, 31st May 2019.

This year we raised much needed funds for the Children's Medical Research Foundation in Cumlin Hospital. And guess how much the students raised for this very worthwhile cause?

€6,600! What an incredible achievement!

We are incredibly proud of our students for raising this money for CMRF Crumlin. Congratulations to all involved and 'Thank you' to everyone who made a donation.

'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.

Learning at the heart of our community.
