Blackwater Community School, Lismore is a state of the art educational establishment that boasts a modern school building on a greenfield site. The school is an amalgamation of 3 Catholic Voluntary Schools with a Mercy, Presentation and CBS traditions. Since opening in September 2003, we have been very much conscious of being innovators and not so much imitators. This is reflected in our recent additions to our school, which include a new pitch with an elaborate drainage system, an Olympic standard sports hall, a gymnasium, a floodlit astroturf pitch, a Fergus Costello designed meditation room, a new library and an excellent canteen facility. Our investment in 3 IT rooms, 30 interactive whiteboards and video conferencing capabilities has made BCS one of the first schools in Ireland to be so technologically advanced.

Transition Years present the Pope John Paul II Award Scheme in Dungarvan
On the 26th of February an information night was held in the Park Hotel, in Dungarvan about the Pope John Paul II awards. The presentation started at seven with Fr. Michael Toomey the co-ordinator of the award in the Waterford and Lismore diocese, who was there to explain what the award was about for parents of upcoming students and priests in the nearby parishes. Students from Blackwater community school created a presentation about their view and experience of the award. Overall the night was a success; the people who came received packs of information on the award. These students have been involved in this award scheme this year with the help of the local Parish Pastoral Councils they have supported and encouraged young people to become more involved in the life of their parish.
The long anticipated day has arrived for the latest talented persons in the school and in the region vying for the coveted title of the 2014 BCS Factor winner. This has always turned out to be a fantastic event in the school calendar with individual and group entries taking part from within the school and from many visiting school groups. Enjoy the occasion.
Best wishes to our transition year group who are in the regional final this Friday in LimerickSchool Prospectus
