 Dear Parents & Guardians

It is the turn of the Don Bosco visitors to visit UCC this - part of the very successful sports exchange that has been taking place for so many years now. Don Bosco are bringing 15 staff across for the Sports Exchange which takes place in the first week of the Easter holidays. If anyone would like to host a Belgian member of staff for the week of 28th March – 1st April please let Mr Lewin know as soon as possible. [no Flemish speaking required!].

I am delighted to announce that we have accepted 10 students on to our Music Scholarship scheme and they have impressed the panel with their dedication to their music studies and their contribution to the wider music provision in the college.

Safer Internet Day 2016

February 9th 2016 is Safer Internet Day, a day that is very important to our school and students. Safer Internet Day is run by the INSAFE network and is celebrated every year across Europe, and in other countries worldwide. In the UK, Safer Internet Day is organised by the UK Safer Internet Centre (, and this year’s theme is “Play your part for a better internet.”

For the next fortnight the college will be working with the students across a variety of assemblies, form group activities and whole school activities to ensure that UCC “Plays its part for a better internet”. Attached is a factsheet about all the different organisations that you may find useful to keep to hand. There is also a document that is a good guide for Parents and Carers about the positive elements and issues surrounding the internet.

We look forward to an excellent fortnight for our students.

In response to requests for a UCC PE sweatshirt we have added this as an optional extra to our uniform list.  Details on sizes and how to order are on our website.
