OCS SURGES AHEAD

OCS has put a huge emphasis on maths over the last few years and we have seen a big improvement in our maths scores. We are now just in line with the national average which is a huge success!


Green Flag for OCS!

In May this year OCS proudly received their first green flag.

Two years ago,  Mr. Conlon and Mr. Haughey established a green schools committee in the school and this group has worked tirelessly to promote environmental awareness throughout the school. To date - recycling has been a significant feature of our environmental awareness.

Boys from the green schools committee along with their teachers, travelled to the Helix at DCU in May to receive this award. 
The Green flag can be seen proudly flying outside the school near the front entrance!

Next year we are going to work towards earning another green flag for the school.
