A warm welcome at school open evening

Fintan Lambe

Primary school pupils from the locality were given a very good idea of the vibrancy of life at Coláiste Bhríde Carnew, as the school threw open its doors for its annual open night recently.

The prospective students, parents and visitors were treated to an impressive display of students' work, and they learned more about the many extra-curricular activities on offer at the school.

They enjoyed performances by the school concert band, and the primary school pupils were invited to try their hand at science experiments and challenges in the maths and English areas.

The school's student representatives told the visitors all about their involvement in the various projects and committees such as Green Schools, development education, Student Council, library and Meitheal programme.

In her address to the assembled guests, principal Linda Dunne outlined the many curricular and extra-curricular initiatives that the school has embarked upon in recent years. She also spoke about the supports that the school offers to new students.

Some of the students acted as guides on the night, and gave the parents and students a detailed tour of the school.

The visitors also got a sneak peek at the upcoming school musical 'Rock of Ages - High School Version' which runs in Carnew from Thursday, December 14, to Saturday, December 16.
