A busy week for Enniscorthy Vocational College students
STUDENTS from Enniscorthy Vocational College were delighted to come face to face with one of their favourite authors recently as Mr Nigel Hinton paid a visit. One of the first celebrated authors of the now burgeoning ‘young adult’ genre, his books have sold in huge amounts the world over and the students were delighted to have the opportunity to ask him questions about his work, his processes and how his mind works when writing.
The school library at the Vocational College was packed all day as classes made the most of the chance to chat with a highly successful author and everyone at the school thanked Nigel for taking the time to come in and speak with the youngsters.
Meanwhile, the students at the Vocational College welcomed another guest to the school in the form of Principal of St Patrick’s Special School, Mr Lee Rogers. Mr Rogers was the grateful recipient of a cheque for €1,439 which was raised by vocational college students over the course of the year. Along with their teachers, Ms Aileen Walsh and Ms Brid Gallagher, they hosted a non-uniform day at the college and they also held a raffle at Christmas time.
Mr Rogers told the students that the money donated would go a long towards helping to purchase vital equipment for St Patrick’s and thanked them and their teachers for all their efforts.
