Prospec­tive stu­dents’ chance to visit Pre­sen­ta­tion

Wexford People - - NEWS -

THE PRE­SEN­TA­TION Sec­ondary School is host­ing an open evening for fifth and sixth class pupils on Novem­ber 14 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Prospec­tive stu­dents from pri­mary schools around the county are in­vited to at­tend with par­ents/guardians and see the school first-hand.

Vis­i­tors will be given a tour of the school and also get to try their hand in some prac­ti­cal demon­stra­tions in cer­tain sub­ject ar­eas. In­for­ma­tion on ap­pli­ca­tion pro­ce­dures will be pro­vided on the evening.

School prin­ci­pal Wil­liam Ryan will ad­dress prospec­tive stu­dents and par­ents/guardians in the school’s con­cert hall at 6.45 p.m.

Teacher, Joe Rol­ston, the Pre­sen­ta­tion’s new Pri­mary School Li­ai­son of­fi­cer, said: ‘It is a great op­por­tu­nity for fu­ture stu­dents and their par­ents/ guardians to see the school first-hand, to take in the wide range of fa­cil­i­ties on the school cam­pus, to meet teach­ers and stu­dents and to find out in­for­ma­tion on what the school of­fers aca­dem­i­cally, as well as find­ing out about the many ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties that they can get in­volved in.’

He added that he would be vis­it­ing var­i­ous feeder schools in the com­ing months but en­cour­aged peo­ple to come along to the open evening as well.

The school re­cently cel­e­brated its bi­cen­te­nary and there are plans to fur­ther ex­tend the cam­pus, with the ad­di­tion of a new wing con­sist­ing of a new sci­ence lab, prep room and two class­rooms.
