OPEN EVENING AT ST KEVIN’S COM­MU­NITY COL­LEGE

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - By EIMEAR DODD

THERE was a huge turnout at the St Kevin’s CC open evening.

Fu­ture stu­dents and their fam­i­lies took the op­por­tu­nity to tour the school and see its fa­cil­i­ties. The evening was well-at­tended by mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity. Cur­rent stu­dents gave demon­stra­tions in a num­ber of the school’s class­rooms. Vis­i­tors were very im­pressed with the art room, home eco­nom­ics kitchen, met­al­work room, wood­work room and sci­ence labs.

Prin­ci­pal Brian Do­ran and Vice-Prin­ci­pal Amy Dervin ad­dressed prospec­tive fam­i­lies at 7.30p.m. Af­ter this, head boy Glen Con­way and head girl Amy Allen spoke about stu­dents’ ex­pe­ri­ences of St Kevin’s CC. There was also a brief pre­sen­ta­tion about the IT tech­nolo­gies used by the school.

Light re­fresh­ments were served. Prospec­tive fam­i­lies had the op­por­tu­nity to min­gle and chat with teach­ing and sup­port staff. Over 200 ap­pli­ca­tion packs were given out dur­ing the evening. Or­gan­is­ers thanked ev­ery­one who at­tended and helped out with the event.
