Celebrating Carlow Vocational School

Class Reunions for the class of 1983 and 1977

Carlow Vocational School is celebrating no less than three birthdays in 2013.  Its predecessor began classes
for adults in 1853; the Vocational School was formally established ninety years ago in 1923, and moved to its
current location on the Kilkenny road in 1977.  With over 1000 students enrolled each year, the school continues
to grow from strength to strength, and is looking forward to a new era with the announcement of a new school
building for 2016.

To celebrate these anniversaries, Carlow Vocational School is hosting a Photographic Exhibition in Visual Carlow
charting the life and achievement of the school, its students and staff.  All are welcome to come celebrate and
share memories of the time at Carlow Vocational School, and in particular the Leaving Certificate Classes of
1983 (celebrating 30 years) and 1997 (the first year group of 1972) are invited to join us for a reunion.

Location: Visual Carlow      
Exhibition: from March 5th to 24th March

Carlow Vocational School  has won the All Ireland Senior C Girls Volleyball final. On Thursday 8 December our senior girls  travelled to the UCD arena to play in the Volleyball final against Terenure Presentation. This was the first year for our school to enter the competition but the team showed their true talent with the help of their coaches Ms Mary Walsh and Ms Martina Redmond and won the all Ireland competition  with a score of 25-22 in the first set and a score of 25-15 in the second set.   The senior girls took the first set  but Terenure presentation fought back bravely in the second set but they were no match for the Carlow Vocational School girls.

The Captain of the team Stefania Sirignano collected the shield on behalf of her team mates but she also collected the award for Most Valuable Player for her outstanding performance on the day.
