For this year’s open day Presentation Castleisland used a hybrid model of a Virtual Information evening and an in-person tour of the school.

Both events were very well attended with many parents and perspective pupils remarking on how nice it was to be able to complete the in-person tour this year.

“The personal tour gives a taste of the warm welcome waiting for students in our school.

A Caring Atmosphere

It is hard to describe the caring atmosphere in the school but when people walk in the door they understand!” said newly appointed Principal Pierce Dargan.

“A wide range of subjects and initiatives were showcased on the day by staff and students. Music is a very popular subject in Presentation so our talented musicians and singers set the tone for the morning at various points throughout the tour and they were joined by Irish dancers along the way.

STEM Centre of Excellence

Each stop on the tour illustrated the innovative, forward-thinking approach to learning in the school and highlighted the many successes the school has had in recent years such as being chosen as a STEM centre of excellence, in sport and in Enterprise.

The wide range of subjects on offer including Spanish, Religion and Computer Science and the vibrant extra-curricular timetable were well received by visitors on the day.
