Buns, bunsen burners and wide range of subjects wow students

David Looby

Our Lady of Lourdes, which celebrates its centenary in the coming months, hosted a very successful open night in the school.

From early evening potential First Years for September 2019 visited the school together with their parents, friends and family members. A warm welcome was extended to all by Principal Toni Ormond and teaching staff.

Students and parents had a chance to register and receive an information pack. Guided tours were provided by senior students to view the wide range of activities on display from music in the corridors and tasting delicious cookies and buns in the Home Economics Room, to experiments in the Science Lab, all were entertained.

Groups made their way through the school to the talks given by Ms Ormond and Deputy Principal Catherine O'Donoghue with contributions from the head girl and deputy head girl and a First Year student on the experience of school life. The visitors were enthralled by the rich display of arts and crafts and enjoyed refreshments in the busy Ref provided by the Parents Council and students. The talk provided details on the school, the introduction of new Junior Cycle and Spanish as a new modern foreign language subject.
