Our student council decided that it would be a nice gesture to collect toys, DVD’s, playing cards, books and games for the new children’s unit in Cork University Hospital. Rang a Sé brought in items from home which will be delivered to the CUH next week. Ms. Hallissey, our Head Boy and Head Girl have been liaising with Miriam Forde, Fundraising Manager for CUH Charity.Miriam is delighted and very appreciative of the donations and said she would be thrilled to accept these offerings next week.

SN Chóbh are very proud of their past pupil Shane Collins who has been involved in a huge undertaking along with fellow student Oisín Coyle at Kinsale Community School. They have been designing visors for healthcare workers in Cork hospitals along with our own local hospital and residential home in Kinsale. Since the end of March,a small team of staff and students have been making and supplying some 6,000 visors designed by the two students at the school using 27 3D printers. Recently they were approached to see if a device designed by the two boys could be used to improve face masks that had arrived in a consignment from China. Shane along with Oisín have been giving of their time and expertise during this Covid 19 crisis to design and alter this consignment of masks which did not meet the expectations for use by frontline hospital staff and have been upgraded thanks to the ingenuity of the two boys along with staff from the school. These masks will now be sent to hospitals and care homes across the country. Dylan Collins another past pupil and brother of Shane has joined this team of volunteers and they are working around the clock altering the 10,000 masks. We recall Shane’s interest in 3D printing when he worked on a project on the Titanic in SN Chóbh Chionn tSáile!! Recently interviewed Shane said he has learned how when you have a hobby you can really use it to make a difference! SN Chóbh Chionn tSáile are extremely proud of Shane and Dylan and all at Kinsale Community School for the difference they are making with this amazing...read more
