NEW SPORTS GROUNDS OPEN AT BRIDGETOWN VEC
THERE WERE massive celebrations at Bridgetown Vocational College recently as the ribbon was officially cut on the school's new state-of-the-art sports facilities.
The school gym was filled with pupils and members of staff both past and present as well as members of the local community who were delighted to see the new facilities unveiled.
The new work has seen the sports facilities upgraded at the school and the addition of a new GAA pitch, which will also be used for soccer, and a new walking track. The school aim to continue to improve their sports facilities, and already have plans to develop facilities for all kinds of athletics.
The ribbon was officially cut on the new facilities by former member of staff and sports fanatic, Seamus O'Toole and following this a big match got underway on the new pitch.
Two teams made up of male and female teachers and pupils, both past and present battled it out in a game split between soccer in the first half and Gaelic football in the second. Principal Fionnuala Greene was extremely happy with the day. 'It was a great celebration and a fun day for everyone,' she said. 'We've had this day marked in the calendar for quite a while and hopefully now we can go on to improve our facilities even further.'
