Causeway Comprehensive School Annual Awards 2020
The Student Awards Night for Causeway Comprehensive took place in the school during the week of September 14th. Although the ceremony could not take place last May as planned, we wanted to ensure that the culmination of the hard work and dedication of the students of Causeway Comprehensive School would be celebrated. During the week, students who received an award attended a presentation in their year group. Later in the week, awards were also presented to our past students who were recognised for their accomplishments while at Causeway Comprehensive School. There was a total of 150 awards presented during the week of the 14th of September. All students were congratulated in a number of short, socially-distanced ceremonies. The awards were presented by the Principal of Causeway Comprehensive, Mr. Cathal Fitzgerald.

The awards co-ordinator Marion Herlihy said "I am delighted that we were able to celebrate the brilliant accomplishments of the staff and students of Causeway Comprehensive School". School Principal Cathal Fitzgerald stated that “this year’s awards clearly demonstrated the huge commitment by staff and students to our school and the variety of talent that is within Causeway Comprehensive School, we felt it was important that we were able to celebrate and acknowledge these students at our school while keeping with the government guidelines.
