Open Day 2018 - Thanks to all our Guests
We had a really enjoyable day last Saturday as over 1400 people visited Violet Hill for our Annual Open Day.
Guests availed of our student guide provision on the day and were taken around all Departments to view the fantastic facilities on offer.
Principal Mr McKinney spoke to invited guests at 11am and 12noon to two packed halls. He was accompanied on stage by Head Prefect David Corkey who shared some great stories about his time at the College and his hopes for the future. David had previously attended Kilbroney Integrated Primary School in Rostrevor.
J1 pupil Caelum McNamara, a past pupil of St Malachy's P.S., Castlewellan, also spoke to the prospective pupils and their families. His words about his first year in the College were very striking and no doubt resonated with the Primary School pupils in the hall.
We wish all prospective pupils the very best as they make their decisions about their next steps in Education in the time ahead.
Thanks also to the hundreds of pupils who came in on the day to help with the Guide Provision, in classrooms or in an extra curricular capacity. We are indebted to our fine ambassadors.
