GCC Student Development Fund
We would like to thank all our parents for your continued support of the Student Development Fund
which allows us to maintain many of the supports we currently provide to our students. These include our book loan scheme, student insurance scheme, payment for buses, photocopying, building repairs and upgrading of school facilities. If any parent is having difficulties in paying this voluntary contribution please contact the Principal, Mr McCarthy, in confidence, and a suitable arrangement will be put in place.
Parents are asked to note that Supervised Study will start on Monday 18 September and will be offered initially to 6th Year students. Students are asked to speak to Deputy Principal Ms Byrne.
