Gorey Guardian - - PICTURES - By SARA GA­HAN

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.
