Tunes and treats at open evening

Wexford People - - NEWS -

THE beau­ti­ful his­toric school build­ing at Meán­scoil Ghar­man was opened up to the pub­lic re­cently as staff and stu­dents wel­comed prospec­tive stu­dents to their an­nual open evening. The vis­i­tors got the chance to take in the mag­nif­i­cent build­ing and views and also see all of the fa­cil­i­ties that are on of­fer there.

The cur­rent crop of stu­dents proved to be the ideal tour guides and there was also quite a bit of tal­ent on dis­play on the night as some of the stu­dents showed off their mu­si­cal­ity in the main hall.

Per­for­mances ranged from 6th years, in­clud­ing No­rah and Jade who fea­ture on the new Ceol 2018 al­bum along­side huge star names, all the way down to first years with Éire per­form­ing her own won­der­ful com­po­si­tion us­ing the un­usual Shruti box.

In the lab­o­ra­tory, the vis­i­tors had the chance to see a range of ex­per­i­ments, some of the braver spec­ta­tors ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the pop­ping of hy­dro­gen gas in their hands! The school of­fers bi­ol­ogy, chem­istry, physics, agri­cul­tural sci­ence and ap­plied maths at leav­ing cert level and ‘pro­motes prob­lem-solv­ing skills’ with stu­dents com­pet­ing at this year’s BT Young Sci­en­tist, the Scifest Na­tion­als and the One Good Idea Pro­gramme.

Also prov­ing a hit with the prospec­tive stu­dents was the Home Eco­nom­ics room with the smell of baked goods work­ing its way all around the school. All in all, it was said to have been a suc­cess­ful evening, spread­ing the Ir­ish lan­guage and show­ing off all that the Brownswood school has to of­fer.
