The Collinstown Christmas Song Video

There has been a long standing tradition in Collinstown Park Community College for staff and students to come together to form a choir for Christmas. The finale usually takes place on the last day of the year. Due to the current situation and social distancing rules, things couldn’t quite take place as normal; however, we didn’t want the year to pass without sticking to tradition. So with the twisting of some arms we managed to get some staff and students to come together virtually to record a Christmas song for staff and students to enjoy today. Many thanks to everyone who got involved and a special thanks to Ms H McHugh for her technical expertise and for the time she put in to creating it.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Happy Christmas to all our students

As we reach the end of a long and unique year, we can stand back and review all that has happened. It has been a challenging year, but hopefully we can look back and see the goodness that it has brought out and the new discoveries that we have made.

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas. Take care of yourselves and those close to you. Roll on 2021.

The staff of Collinstown Park Community College

TY Storyboards Bring Colour To Collinstown

The TY students of Collinstown Park collaborated with their art teacher Ms Strumble to create storyboards and bring some colour to the school. The students made their own mosaic tiles and glazed them. Each piece of art is based on the student’s identity in the school.

If you want to see TY’s amazing and creative artwork it’s located in the main entrance in the hall.

Some TY students made a basketball to show their love for sports. Each piece is individual and really colourful. They bring everyone a bit of cheer when they come into school in the morning. To each student the artwork has its own meaning, it express what their love and interests are and how they see things from their point of view.
