World Suicide Prevention Day

Posted in Category(ies):  Events

St. Ciarans CS Quad

9am - 11am

 

Every year, on September 10th, millions of people across the globe come together to mark World Suicide Prevention Day. St. Ciarans CS joins Cycle Against Suicide and the global community to mark this important day. 

 

More than just a cyclethon, this is an opportunity to move for something that matters – for healing and recovery for those impacted by suicide; for the memory of loved ones lost to suicide; for hope in communities and families struggling with the impact of isolation and loneliness in these unprecedented times.

Firsty Year 'Rooted in Reading' Passports Initiative

Posted in Category(ies):  News

 

1st Year ‘Rooted in Reading’ Passports Initiative 

All first year students will receive their ‘Reading Passports’ this week to encourage our student’s uptake of reading for enjoyment. We believe that reading for enjoyment reduces stress, improves analytical thinking, boosts vocabulary, writing skills and develops increased memory skills. 

Each week, 1st years have the opportunity in English class to participate in ‘Drop Everything and Read’ with a book from home. Students will complete a number of novels between school and home this year. Upon completion, they will receive a ‘passport stamp’ from their English teacher and record the book in their ‘Reading Passports’. Prizes and certificates will be awarded to successful readers in May 2020. With your encouragement and support, we hope to further build a culture of reading in our school community.
