New Computer Science Class

Students of the new 5th Year Computer Science Class gave a warm welcome to Jim Hughes, CEO and co-founder of Innovate, who came to talk to the new class about the importance of Computer Science and its relevance in 21st Century life.  Creagh College was chosen as one of only 20 pilot schools across the country to offer the brand new course to our fortunate students.  Students will sit their exam in 2020 and will be the first ever to submit part of their Leaving Certificate online.  The new subject will focus on how computer programming and computational thinking can be applied to the solution of problems, and how computing technology impacts the world.  Their teacher Mr Tony McGrath, a UCD Computer Science Graduate, is really excited and looking forward to the next 2 years, and says that ‘our students will have a considerable advantage, especially if they should pursue the subject at 3rd level’.  Principal Declan O’Toole credits our excellent computer facilities and successful mobile learning programme for being chosen by the Department of Education to pilot the course.  We wish the whole class every success on this exciting new venture.  


Leaving Certificate Results 2018

Huge Well done to our Class of 2018 who achieved excellent results this year.  120 proud graduates received their results at the school and many teachers were there to wish them well and congratulate them on their success.  

We are proud of each student and all the hard work they put in over the last two years.  There are some really impressive results amongst them and Creagh College staff wish you all the best on your exciting futures ahead.

Creative Schools Project

It is with great delight that we can announce that our school has been selected as on of the 150 schools that will participate in the Creative Schools pilot 2018/2019.

Creative Schools is led by the Art Council in partnership with the Department of Education and the Department of Culture, Heritage & Gaeltacht.  The pilot will understand, develop and celebrate the arts and creativity in Creagh college.

Over the course of the year, Creagh College will receive funding of €2000 from the Arts Council, to develop and implement a Creative School Plan especially to suit Creagh College Students.  Having just completed the Per Cent for Art project, with Artist Alan Counihan, and unveiling the specially commissioned ‘Seeds of Wonder’ piece on the campus, it’s a wonderful opportunity to further enhance our superb Art culture in the school.
