Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

In­com­ing first year stu­dents were given the chance to have a sneakpeek into the next stage of their lives at the Open Night of the En­nis­cor­thy Vo­ca­tional Col­lege.

Deputy Prin­ci­pal Iain Wick­ham said this year’s turnout was ex­cel­lent, as there was a steady flow across the evening and vis­i­tors had a choice to join a tour or to ex­am­ine the cam­pus them­selves.

The weather played its part in pro­vid­ing a beau­ti­ful Au­tumn evening and a large num­ber of par­ents and guardians gath­ered with their chil­dren to see what the col­lege has to of­fer.

All sub­jects were on dis­play, with teach­ers and staff more than will­ing to help with ques­tions on cer­tain sub­ject ar­eas in­clud­ing Ir­ish, English, maths, his­tory, ge­og­ra­phy, bi­ol­ogy, mu­sic, art, met­al­work, con­struc­tion stud­ies and much more.

‘Cur­rent stu­dents were present around the school to give an in­sight into the stu­dent life,’ said Mr Wick­ham.

Teach­ers who are in­volved with ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties were also on hand to of­fer some ad­vice about their clubs, such as en­ter­prise, creative writ­ing, arts and sci­ence.

‘And also we have re­cently launched our stu­dent news­pa­per The Mile Post,’ said Mr Wick­ham.

The col­lege of­fers a wide va­ri­ety of sports in­clud­ing hurl­ing, foot­ball, soc­cer, rugby, bas­ket­ball, bad­minton and ath­let­ics.

Fifth and sixth class stu­dents could en­rol on the night but forms will be ac­cepted un­til Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 27. If par­ents could not make it to the Open Night, call the school of­fice to make an ap­point­ment to see the fa­cil­i­ties on 053 92 34185.
