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.

In 2021 we’re going socially distanced!
Join Pieta and Electric Ireland for a special Darkness Into Light sunrise, and give the gift of hope to those impacted by suicide and self-harm. Join in any way you can – walk, swim, bike or simply share your sunrise moment.
See the Chaplain Mr Wright or Mr Comasky for further details on how you can participate.

RE: Revised arrangements for the completion of Classroom Based Assessments (CBAs) for the cohort of students 2018 – 2021 (students in 3rd Year in 2020/2021)
Students experienced a disrupted period of learning in 2019/20 because of school closures introduced to curtail the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the best efforts of teachers and schools to mitigate the effects of disrupted schooling, the learning experience of students varied.
As a result students only need to complete one CBA in each subject.
Please see attached the schedule of CBA’s for our school. You will see that some were completed last year ( Business/ Science) and others are in progress.
Please discuss the timetable with your son/daughter to ensure that they are staying up to date with all the research and projects.
Should you have any questions about the CBA’s please contact us at Juniorcycle@stciaranscs.ie
