Information Evening 26th November

Colaiste Abbain are hosting an Information Evening for parents of 5th & 6th class students on Thursday 26th November 2015 @7.30pm.

We will discuss topics like:

  • Transition from Primary to Post primary
  • Subject Choice and Sampling of subjects
  • Modern Language selection
  • Application & Enrolment procedures
  • New school extension

Arising from your visit this evening I hope you get a sense of what Colaiste Abbain is about.

That sense is best summed up in our Mission Statement which states that:

Coláiste Abbáin endeavours to provide quality education for all students

in a caring, disciplined and respectful environment. We aim to prepare

students for life and responsible citizenship and motivate them

towards the achievement of their full potential.

Colaiste Abbain considers its place in the community and its relationship with parents to be very important. Parents are always welcome to visit the College and we view this partnership as very much contributing to our success as a College and to the reputation of Colaiste Abbain in the community.

Following this evening’s meeting, if you still feel you wish to talk to someone in person , please do not hesitate to contact the main office and the staff will be delighted to arrange an appointment for you.

Competition Winners!!

In October 2015 Colaiste Abbains TY class entered a competition run by Wexford Mental Health Association.This was called the "Expressions" project and is a new venture focusing on the theme of " Positive mental health is..........."The project aims to promote awareness amongst young people of the importance of positive mental health and the causes and effects of mental illness.

The TY students expressed their views on what they thought positive mental health is through a thought  provoking drama and creative  artwork,dance,production of a calendar and board game. They also coordinated an art competition to promote mental health within the school community.All their hard work paid off when they received first prize and were deemed overall winners of the competition.
