JCSP Christmas Celebration

Celebrating success is an important component of Cabra Community College and the JCSP. In addition to holding end of year celebrations of achievements for all, 1st years host a JCSP Christmas Celebration for their parents and 2nd years host a party for the primary schools. Attendance awards, and achievement Cerys are awarded to students.  Celebrating success at this stage acts as a wonderful booster to all students.

The JCSP Programme has been up and running in the school since for many years and provides our school with a framework to ensure students enjoy positive experiences of the Junior Cycle through a creative, broad-based curriculum and that they go on to achieve success in the Junior Certificate Examination.

Litter Patrol

Our new Litter Patrol got underway this week despite the downpours of rain.  Thanks to the many volunteers from 1stand 2nd Year “many hands will make light work”.


The Litter Patrol will clean up after lunch break every day and will actively recycle the rubbish into the correct bins Recycle or General Waste.  They will visit the student and staff canteens to collect the organic food waste like fruit peels and tea bags to bring it to the compost bins.   Students will also ensure that used ink cartridges from the computer rooms, classrooms and offices go to the special Ink Cartridge Recycle Box in the Hallway.

Good luck to all the students involved in helping to make Cabra Community College a Green  School!
