Minister for Education visits Errigal College

IMG 0031

Errigal College was abuzz on Friday morning for the visit of the Minister for Education and Skills, Mr Richard Bruton. The minister was greeted by the Errigal College students who gave him a guard of honour and applauded him.

Following an insightful panel discussion on the future of Irish education in front of an invited audience of local education stakeholders, Mr Bruton was given a tour of Errigal College by the principal, Mr Charlie Cannon. He was impressed by Mr Garry Gorman’s first year Coding class and along with Minister Joe McHugh; CE of Donegal ETB, Anne McHugh and Director of Schools with Donegal ETB, Martin Gormley; Mr Bruton got roped into taking part in an unplugged activity, which could have easily been mistaken for a dance class! This activity demonstrated some of the principles of coding, which all first years study as a short course. Errigal College is one of only four schools in Co Donegal to have been chosen for this programme.

He then visited Mr Martin McGrory’s third year Materials Technology (Wood) class, spoke to the students as they worked and admired the quality of their handiwork.

Mr Cannon was delighted with the Minister’s visit and the fact that in a tight schedule, he had the opportunity to see the quality and standard of students' work in Errigal College’s excellent facilities.
