1st Year History Trip

1st Years from CCS visited Ferrycarraig Heritage where they learned about the Mesolithic to the Viking periods. We then went onto Enniscorthy where we visited the 1798 Rebellion Centre. The Museum had brilliant audio visual presentations and terrific guide. We then walked to Enniscorthy Castle where we had quick talk on the history of the castle and visited the top of the Castle where there is terrific views of Enniscorthy and nearby Vinegar Hill. Great day was had by all.

6th Year Ecology Trip

Leaving Certificate Ecology:
Students investigated a study site examining organisms including woodland invertebrates, small mammals and general flora and fauna. A range of sampling techniques and equipment are used (e.g. square and point quadrats, line transect, pooter, mammal trap, classification keys etc.).

The physical and behavioural adaptations of the ecosystem were explored along with the effect of biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) factors on plant growth along with briefly considering the impact of invasive species. A variety of environmental factors were recorded (light, temperature, relative humidity, soil pH, slope angle) to aid further analysis and understanding. An ecology work booklet was provided for each student to record observations and notes to take back to the classroom for further analysis.
