Open Night 2017


Colaiste Abbain Adamstown Open Night

Open night is on Tuesday 10th October 2017


This evening provides an opportunity for you to visit our college, view the facilities, meet Senior Students (Mentors and Projects) and talk to teachers in an informal setting. On your walk around the college you can visit several classrooms where staff will be promoting their subject area. Following your “tour” of the college you are invited to the Gym where the Principal will address you. Arising from your visit we hope you get a sense of what Colaiste Abbain is about. 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. 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. If you cannot attend and you still feel you wish to talk to someone in the college, please do not hesitate to contact the main office and the staff will be delighted to arrange an appointment for you.
