Bal­brig­gan CC Open Night

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

BAL­BRIG­GAN Com­mu­nity Col­lege held its Open Night last week for po­ten­tial stu­dents of the school now at 5th and 6th class in pri­mary school, and their par­ents.

The school’s doors were opened wide so peo­ple could come in and visit the cam­pus and hear about the ad­vances the school is mak­ing at a class­room level with its ‘School of Ex­cel­lence’, and on a whole school level with its ‘Col­lege for Ev­ery Stu­dent’ awards.

Only re­cently the school re­ceived the ‘CFES (Col­lege for Ev­ery Stu­dent) In­ter­na­tional School of Dis­tinc­tion’ award for the third year run­ning.

It is one of only seven schools in Ire­land to cur­rently hold the award which recog­nises and ac­knowl­edges the de­vel­op­ment and ex­e­cu­tion of an ex­em­plary plan for the en­tire stu­dent body to be­come col­lege and ca­reer ready.

On the back of this achieve­ment, the school has been hailed as a ‘global model’ for cre­at­ing a cul­ture for help­ing stu­dents de­velop the es­sen­tial skills they need to suc­ceed in the 21st cen­tury.

Along with this ex­cit­ing news, the school are also work­ing in con­junc­tion with the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion in be­com­ing a ‘School of Ex­cel­lence.’

The school has been se­lected to work closely with lo­cal pri­mary schools in de­vel­op­ing a plan to en­hance mod­ern teach­ing meth­ods which can then be used as a tool for the seam­less pro­gres­sion from pri­mary to se­condary level.
