INCOMING STUDENTS GET A FEEL FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL LIFE
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.
