KCFE’s Denny St campus brings new life to town
IT’S only been open for a matter of days but already the Kerry College of Further Education’s new town centre campus has brought a new lease of life to Denny Street.
The KCFE’s second campus – located in the fully refurbished and now interlinked 5,6,7 and 8 Denny Street buildings – opened for business in the past week and it is now home to between 150 and 200 students.
The new Denny Street campus – which complements the KCFE’s main campus in Clash – is home to the college’s Health, Social Sciences and Humanities departments and will house learners studying nursing, youth work, social studies, assistant pharmacy, emergency services , maternity care and supervisory management among many other subjects.
The College, under the auspices of Kerry ETB, offers over 60 programmes covering a wide range of disciplines and operates under the leadership of Principal Mary Lucey.
The past week has seen the KCFE’s latest group of students taking part in their induction, touring the college’s twin campuses and meeting other students and staff.
Classes got underway in earnest this week and the addition of scores of new students to the town centre has helped breathe a welcome sense of life and energy into the town and into Denny Street in particular.
The Kerryman would like to welcome our new neighbours to Denny Street and we wish all involved every success.
