AN Open Day for Coláiste Gleann Lí Post Primary School in Clash takes place on Saturday, October 17th from 10am to 1pm.

The school has been growing in popularity and enrolments since it was relaunched and rebranded over a year ago.

The initial relaunch saw plans for a two phased approach commencing with an immediate upgrade of specialist classrooms and facilities such as Art, Design Communications Graphics suites and Computer laboratories.

Phase two has passed through the design phase and has been granted planning recently by Kerry County Council.

The much anticipated second phase promises that the entire post primary school will be extended, refurbished and upgraded.

In addition to these physical changes, Kerry Education and Training Board have selected Coláiste Gleann Lí to become an ICT school of the future and infrastructure such as Wi-Fi will be installed this academic year throughout the school campus.

The massive financial investment in the facilities on the campus is only one reason why enrolments and interest in the school has increased.

Coláiste Gleann Lí Manager Richard Lawlor highlighted that; “The school is the only post primary school in Tralee that can offer the highest level of individual and personalised attention to students, ensuring that each student realises their full potential”.

“The school is re-establishing itself as a leading provider of quality education in Tralee. In addition to the usual Junior and Leaving Certificate courses, we offer students experiences and workshops in areas such as robotics and programming, work shadowing and third level taster programmes.”

“Coláiste Gleann Lí has forged strong links with the Institute of Technology Tralee, University College Cork (NUI, Cork) and Kerry College of Further Education. Our students continue to benefit from these links with the vast majority transferring to third level courses after completing the Leaving Certificate at Coláiste Gleann Lí. This year’s Leaving Certificate class was no exception and our results were excellent with a marked increase in students opting for and performing well in higher level subjects,” added Assistant Principal and PRO Maryanne Lowney.

Richard Lawlor, Manager of Coláiste Gleann Lí, highlighted the school’s successes in recent Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate examinations.

“Statistical data indicates that our students continue to perform to their full ability and potential at every level,” he said.

This point was supported by a number of past pupils who volunteered their support for the launch of the Open Day.

The Management of Coláiste Gleann Lí wish to extend a welcome to parents/ guardians of primary school students to make contact with the school admission office, should they wish to discuss enrolment.
