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.

1st year Business Yrip

Wed, 21 May 2014 14:25:00 GMT

The First Year Business classes had a great time on their trip when they travelled to Dublin and went to Butlers Chocolate Factory and then to Liffey Valley shopping centre afterwards. They had great fun as they got to discover how chocolate is made and where and when it was invented. They got a tour of the factory and museum and then got to paint their very own chocolate teddy bears. They got many different samples of different chocolate and also watched a video about the history of Butlers Chocolate Factory. We also want to thank all the teachers who arranged the trip and to Butlers for the amazing experience.
