Tomasz Krawczyk:2011- 2017

“During this final year the students, teachers and parents worked as a whole in order to make each one of us work to our full potential.  My journey started in 2011 and the teachers continue to respect you no matter what age, race or cultural background you come from.  The phrase of the school “strive for excellence” really represents this school well.”

Aaron O’Connor 2011- 2017

I came to Carrignafoy Community College, unsure of what to expect. After spending six years here, I’m glad of the exceptional dedication that the staff have given to the school. Without their teaching and more importantly without their support, and willingness to aid students both physically through work and mentally through guidance and advice, I don’t believe I could have gotten to the position I’m now in. I am doing a BSc. in Physics in UCC which I thoroughly enjoy and I am very glad I got the opportunity to attend this school.

At Carrignafoy Community College I learned so much about various subjects and valuable life lessons. The environment was always phenomenal, there was always a happy vibe throughout the school with both teachers and students. The school helped me find my further passion for musical theatre too after playing the ‘Scarecrow’ in ‘Over The Rainbow’. There were always fantastic facilities and trips with the school and an excellence in teaching from staff.
I am now studying Drama and Theatre Studies in UCC with joint honours in English and French and currently preparing for the Christmas exams. College is a huge change from secondary school, it gives you a sense of maturity travelling by yourself around the city. Carrignafoy Community College provided me with that sense of maturity and all valuable aspect of life and learning.

 

Kyle Brophy: 2006-2013

“From start to finish, my time in Carrignafoy Community College enabled me to achieve my career goals in pursuing a third level education in Engineering.  Having recently graduated from the University of Limerick with a B.Eng in Aeronautical Engineering,  I can safely say that the support and quality of the academic staff in CCC made the transition to university much easier. Since graduating I have commenced employment as an Asset Manager in the Technical department of Airbus Commercial Airplanes Group.”

Bryan Crowley: 1990-1995

“I have fond memories of my five years in Cobh Vocational School (as it was called then).  Looking back now, it was a time of significant personal and academic development for myself and this was helped in no small way by the quality of teachers and facilities at the school.  The wide variety of sporting facilities also allowed plenty of scope for engagement around physical and sporting pursuits.”

Academic/Work Progression:  My secondary school education stood to me throughout the years.
