Mountmellick Community School opened its doors to prospective students, their parents, guardians and the community on Tuesday October 21.

The night gave an insight into the wide range of subjects on offer and the many extra curricular activities, from international tours, to drama, debating and environmental groups.

“It was very well attended. We had six of our senior cycle students making a presentation on life in the school. It was very real, and very warmly received, and then there were lots of first years actively involved on the night, which was warmly commented on, so it was an incredibly positive evening,” said the principal Larry Curtin.

Parents and their children were treated to a guided tour of the school by the best ambassadors of all, the pupils.

“The night was a huge success,thoroughly enjoyed by all, with positive feedback still coming in,” said Mr Curtin.

Enrolment and testing for incoming first years will take place on Saturday November 15, from 8.40 to 1.30.
