School opens its doors to prospective students
EAGER sixth class pupils from schools in the north Wexford area got the chance to look around Coláiste An Átha, Kilmuckridge, at its annual open evening last week.
The doors of the school were thrown open to prospective pupils and their parents so they could see the modern facilities at the school and the range of activities and subjects on offer.
Some Coláiste an Átha students were present at the open evening to demonstrate the range of activities they undertake in the various subjects in the school’s well equipped classrooms. The school has ultra-modern hi-tec rooms, including a science room, music room, home economics room, art, woodwork and drawing rooms.
The wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer at the school, past student projects and achievements, as well as transition year activities, were also put on display around the school.
The school’s impressive sports facilities were also open for viewing, including the new sports hall with fully equipped gymnasium.
There was also an opportunity to chat to teachers and staff about life in the school, supports available, and the range of new subjects that will be open to the pupils should they opt to go to school in Kilmuckridge.
