23/01/2010 23:11 - Choosing a School / Application Procedures
-----------------------------------
I have 2 daughters aged 11 and 8. Their names are down in both schools since they were small so I hope to have a choice. I did not go to school in Cork myself so I have no loyalty to either or direct knowledge of either. Anyone have any advice? Main issues would be subject choices. I would like them to have as many options as possible in Junior Cycle. I would prefer if the classes were mixed ability, do either/both stream on the basis of entrance exams? What are the sports facilities like? One of my daughters is quite sporty and I would think she would enjoy hockey. I have never been to either school but I have heard the infrastructure is not great in either so i have no great expectations in that regard. Are the girls allowed in to town at lunch time? My sons both go to pres and I have been very happy with that so far but I seem to be having a harder time getting a feel for girls schools!
