December 9, 2016

Tyndall College, Carlow’s newest post primary school – this is a newly established school, under the auspices of Kilkenny and Carlow Education and Training Board, with extensive new purpose-built premises on a green-field site at Mortarstown, Carlow (part of the KCETB Carlow Campus development). Tyndall College’s open evening for first year student enrolment takes place on Thursday 10th November 2016.
Carlow’s newest school, Tyndall College is under construction at Kilkenny-Carlow Education and Training Board’s new campus at Mortarstown on the Kilkenny Road. Named after the famous Carlow-born scientist, John Tyndall, this new school is a major development for the region. At 10,000 square metres, Tyndall College represents a major investment in the education of future generations. The school will include state-of-the-art facilities for science, the arts, technology and sports as well as generous provision of classrooms and learning support.
Tyndall College Carlow is named after John Tyndall – a very important 19th century physicist, who was born and educated in Carlow. One of the leading scientists of his day and responsible for extensive scientific discovery, Tyndall explained why we see light in the sky as blue during the day, but red at sunset. Tyndall College Carlow has chosen to celebrate this spirit of discovery in its student uniform and crest. The Tyndall College Carlow crest shows shades of blue light, divided by white light and a starburst with gold, signifying the exciting pursuit of knowledge, understanding and reason through education.
As a Kilkenny-Carlow Education and Training Board school, Tyndall College is a co-educational, non-denominational, multi-belief school and will offer the new Junior Cycle programme, Transition Year and Leaving Certificate. Tyndall College will open for the academic year 2017, and is holding its Open Evening for its First Year enrolment on Thursday 10th November 2016 at the Woodford-Dolmen Hotel, Kilkenny Road, Carlow from 7pm to 9pm.
