Balbriggan CC Open Night
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.
