Arklow CBS School News Week Ended 13th December 2019.

CAO Meeting

Thursday night saw our sixth year parents attend school for an information evening on CAO. Ms. Whelan presented the night and gave the parents valuable information on the whole CAO process. Arklow Credit Union also gave the parents a pack detailing finances for college. We much appreciate the time and input Stephen from the credit union.

Polish Meal

This Thursday saw our students go to Arklow Golf Club for a Polish Buffet Meal. Students got to sample a huge variety of Polish food stuffs and thoroughly enjoyed it. Many thanks to Monika for organising it and to Mr. O’ Gorman and Mr. Regan for accompanying the students.

Third Year Study Skills

This week our third year students were given the opportunity to participate in a study skills session facilitated by Career Guidance Councillor Ms. Whelan. This was a great opportunity for the students and much appreciated by them for the time and effort that MS. Whelan put into preparing the session.

Christmas Exams

This week saw our first, second and fifth year students undertake their Christmas exams. This is the first time our first year students have undertaken formal exams and gives them great experience in preparing ultimately for their junior Certificate examinations.


Last week saw two of our sixth year groups go to Gorey Cinema for a special showing of Hamlet. This is their play for the Leaving Certificate and seeing the play in real life gave the students a completely different perspective on the play. Many thanks to Ms. O’ Brien and Ms. Byrne for bringing the students and giving them the valuable experience.

Bake sale in aid of Wicklow Hospice

Last Wednesday saw us undertake a bake sale in aid of Wicklow Hospice. The great sum of €300 was raised. Sinead Tarmey the administrator of the Hospice came to school on Wednesday to receive the cheque and get a photograph with some of the students. Many thanks to all who supported it and to Ms. White for organising.

Movie school

This Tuesday and Wednesday saw our Transition Year Students take part in movie school. Here students got to learn about all the making of movies and the intricacies involved. Students also got to design and film their own movie which proved to be an entertaining and hilarious activity. Thanks to Ms. Levingstone for organising.

Junior hurling blitz

Next Monday will see our first and second year hurlers take on all the other Arklow schools in a blitz. Best of luck lads!

School holidays

Our school holidays will take place next Friday with the school closing for a half day. Mr. Somers, the Principal would like to take the opportunity to wish all staff, students and their families a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous new year.
