Investment in Woodwork Equipment
11th March 2021
Here at Castlepollard Community college, we ty to ensure that students have the best equipment possible to achieve their goals. These goals and targets in our practical subjects have been up there with the best in Ireland. In order to maintain the high standards set in these classrooms, we have invested greatly in the facilities available to our students.
In Woodwork, our students have been given a massive boost with the installation of top of the range equipment over the last two weeks. The new equipment will ensure that the students’ creativity and designs can be completed to the highest standard thus ensuring our pupils will leave having developed their skills to the best of their ability.
Woodwork teacher here at Castlepollard Community College, Mr Burke stated, “All the new machines offer the latest in technology and will allow pupils the opportunity to work safely in practical situations which will enhance their projects for exam assessments.”
When talking about the more technical aspects of the subject Mr Burke added, “This will allow pupils to undertake woodturning safely and more artistically in terms of design. The scroll saw allows for more accurate cutting of curves and the drill stand and sander will enhance project diversity.”
These are exciting developments in our school and we are looking forward to seeing the fantastic projects our students will produce over the next few years.
