Welcome to Presentation College Carlow

Presentation College is a co-educational  Catholic voluntary secondary school which caters for pupils of all religions and backgrounds.  We aim to provide our pupils with an education that equips them for life and living in the modern world.  We aim to challenge students to share with us the Christian vision of life.  We have drawn up a Mission Statement that describes the kind of school we wish to be.  We hope that every member of the school community will attempt to live by it and we intend that all of our decisions are informed by it and our school development plans based on it.

Removal of Trees

Sat, 09 Aug 2014 20:33:00 GMT

Regrettably this weekend sees the removal of the trees along both sides of the avenue for safety reasons. The trees have grown there for thirty years and continued to get bigger. Their root systems ran very close to the surface over a
large area. For the last ten years these roots have caused significant damage  to the football pitch, avenue, pedestrian path and drainage system. Despite work to control the problem, it has continued to worsen, leaving no option but to remove the trees. It is planned to remove all old roots and carry out repairs on the avenue, drainage system and playing pitch. It is intended to replant the area with new, well established trees which will have a more suitable root structure, grow to a smaller size on maturity and can stay in place for a much longer period.
