Welcome to Carrick-on-Shannon Community School

The school was established in 1994 with the aim of providing a comprehensive post-primary education to all children of the community regardless of intellectual ability, religious background or family means. The building and its extensive grounds are located on Summerhill, just off the N4’s southern approach to the town.

School Book Lists

Students who do not wish to participate in the Book Rental Scheme can use the following lists to purchase their schoolbooks:

Way2Pay - Online Payments System

We continue our move towards being a cashless school and remind you that payments for the next school year should be made online where possible through www.way2pay.org

way2pay allows you to pay down the amount owed in installments* by allowing you the freedom to input the amount you wish to pay at the time of the transaction. If you have a Medical Card, present the card at the office and the amount owed will be adjusted accordingly.

Way2Pay allows parents/ guardians the opportunity to pay for school activities and services by text and/ or online. The service also allows for an immediate receipt to be issued when a payment has been made. For further information,  click here.

*Book Rental must be paid in full before books are given to students.

'Use Your Brain Not Your Fists' Film Launch

We were privileged to attend the launch of the Use Your Brain Not Your Fists film in The Bush Hotel on the 27th April 2018.

The short film, by Leitrim Comhairle na nÓg, highlights the devastating consequences that can occur when a person uses their fists instead of their brains in a conflict situation. The film is dedicated to Shane Grogan and to the memory of Andrew Dolan. Both Andrew and Shane were victims of seperate unprovoked assaults while enjoying time out with their friends. Andrew died as a result of the assault while Shane was left with brain injuries. Both Shane's and Andrew's parents attended the launch and shared their personal stories with us.

Please click on the link to watch the video and remind everyone to Use Your Brain Not Your Fists.

Learning at the heart of our community.
