April 4th, 2016 was a very significant day in the history of education for the South Tipperary town of Carrick-on-Suir. It marked the beginning of a new era for the staff and students of Comeragh College as they moved into their new €13 million campus.
After many years of hard work by Ms Fionuala McGeever, Chief Executive of Tipperary Education and Training Board and her staff, the green light was given, a few years ago, to build this fantastic new school and on January 5th, 2015, construction began on the vast 16 acre site. The works were completed on March 14th, 2016.
The school itself boasts everything a 21st century school should possess. Academic, sporting, social, leadership, spiritual and other students’ needs are catered for with a combination of excellent facilities and a willing staff.
The 600 sq metre sports hall is in constant use, as are the five external ball courts for both timetabled PE classes and extra-curricular activities.
The teaching/learning process is the single most important priority at Comeragh College. This is enhanced by a number of factors in place in the school such as; teacher based classrooms, a full suite of ICT facilities in each room (including surface pro 4’s, data projectors, visualizers, etc.), careful timetabling and an excellent teacher/student dynamic. In addition to the standard ICT equipment for each room, there are four fully functional computer labs, including a mobile lab called a Labcabby (a mobile device which houses/transports/stores/charges 30 laptops).
Three science labs, 5 practical rooms, language labs are among some of the specialist rooms in operation since the school opened.
On the grounds of the school are many additional features such as walk ways, external gym points, poly tunnels, vast seating areas and a full size GAA field.
Whilst the list of facilities in the school is almost endless, it is worth noting that overarching view of the students is one of contentment where each one can learn at their own pace and in their own way. It’s the way a school should operate!
