Why are there no pictures?

We are often asked, "Why are there no pictures of students on your website?"

We took the decision a number of years ago that as part of our Child Protection procedures we would not publish pictures of our students on the Carrick-on-Shannon Community School website.

While we would love to publish the pictures of our students celebrating their successes in the State Examinations or on the playing field, we believe that it is not appropriate for these images to be made available to the world via the internet.

Staff Training Day

All students should remain at home on Tuesday next, 11th September 2018 as our staff will be attending training with the Junior Cycle for Teachers team on that day.

Please refer to our School Journal for details of holidays etc. or alternatively click on www.carrickcs.ie/calendar

Best of luck to all those receiving their results on Wednesday.
