Arklow CBS News for week ending November 27th, 2020

College Awareness Week November 23rdth –27th.

Arklow CBS celebrated College Awareness Week this week. The aim of the week was to inform students about the various college opportunities, the different possibilities when going to college and to encourage them to become ‘college ready’. There were several activities organised for each year and there was a display made within the school to inform students of the qualifications that teachers have, along with previous jobs and what colleges they attended. Thanks to Ms. Rooney for organising.

Students are also reminded that the CAO is now open and to keep updated with virtual open days in colleges to give them insight of what their college of interest is like.

B’s Campaign for TEAM HOPE

Due to the effects of Covid 19, it is not possible to send gift-filled boxes from Ireland this year. However, we can still help……the Shoebox Appeal has moved online!

1B are trying to spread the word and have been busy creating lots of colourful posters to place around the School. They are asking all who can, to support TEAMHOPE, as we have done in previous years!

This year more than ever, they need our help. You can make your shoebox online, anytime up to December 23rd. See Christmas Shoebox Appeal for more details and help bring joy to a child this Christmas.

Thank you, from 1B.
