Thanks to all parents/guardians and prospective students who attended our Open Day on Thursday 13th October. We estimate that there were about 450 families represented on the day. Visitors to the school were offered a guided tour by our current students and received a brochure outlining the various curricular and extra-curricular programmes that are on offer in the college. Each subject area had a display of work done by students and teachers and students were on hand to answer questions from visitors. Parents and students leaving the school commented on how proud our students are of the College and of being a member of our community.
Thanks for members of our Parents’ Association who attended and offered a cup of tea to visitors as well as explaining the importance of parental involvement in our school.

Our 6th year students are busy preparing for the Leaving Cert written exams in June while still managing to cope very well with current Irish language orals.
The French and German orals and music practicals went very smoothly. Upcoming art, engineering and construction practicals and the LCVP exam will be happening within the next 2 weeks. Best of luck to all.
