Piper’s Hill College in Naas celebrated the official opening of a new additional engineering studies room last Friday, September 28.
Principal Colm O’Connor told the Leader the room was opened because of growing demand for practical subjects.
“We’ve now moved from three practical rooms to six pratical rooms,” said Mr. O’Connor.
“The need is for the huge demand by students to meet the skills shortage in modern society. The number of students taking practical subjects has grown, and we have 1,000 students so it’s to meet the needs of the ever increasing student body.”
The room was funded by the Department and the KWETB.
Piper’s Hill will celebrate its 10 year anniversary, and an open night takes place on Thursday, October 11.
