The Open Night at Cashel Community School will be on Thursday of next week, January 26, from 6pm to 9pm. All sixth class primary school pupils and their parents are invited to visit. A warm welcome awaits them.

The evening will begin with guided tours of this modern school building and its state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities. Visitors will meet with members of management and staff and the event will conclude with a concise presentation outlining the spirit of the school community and the practical procedures of school life at Cashel C.S.

In advance of the Open Night, the school principal, Mr. Eddie Morrissey, will visit the sixth class pupils in the primary schools within the catchment area.

Adult Evening Classes

Final plans are being made for the Adult Evening Classes which will commence on the week beginning January 30. A wide range of courses will be on offer, with “Fitness and Wellbeing” being the theme of this Spring’s classes. Courses such as bootcamp, badminton, Indian head massage, meditation, reflexology, tai chi, and reiki are well suited to those who wish to escape from the stresses of everyday life.

Old reliables such as computer courses, painting and languages, along with growing vegetables and flower arranging add wide variety to the 27 courses on offer this Springtime.

Enrolment will take place on next Monday, January 23, between 2pm and 4pm and again between 7pm and 9pm. Brochures are available by contacting the Community School, 062-61167.

Science Exhibition

The annual Young Scientist Exhibition, staged at the R.D.S. in Dublin in early January, has by now been running for many years.

This year, as usual, the Transition Year students at CCS attended, accompanied by science teachers Ms. Walsh and Mr. McGrath. One particular group within the 70-strong contingent had extra reason to take notice of the displays of research, discovery and invention.

In 12 months from now they themselves will be exhibitors. They are wished well as they continue their work on these projects. Who knows? Maybe among this CCS group of young scientists lurks the Irish Young Scientist of the Year 2013.
