You've driven past it many times and I bet wondered "What happens in there?'"...Well, 34 Senior Boys from CCS recently had the opportunity to glimpse inside the incredible INISHOWEN ENGINEERING MANUFACTURING business in Drumfries. Firstly the boys were given a talk on the "Apprenticeship Programme" run by Donegal ETB and how it might suit them following on from the Leaving Certificate. Then on went the high-vis jackets and safety goggles and off the boys went on a tour of the facilities. The boys were lucky enough to see every machine in operation and the start-to-finish on the production line. We even met some past pupils who are working their way through the Apprenticeship scheme...It definitely proved a hit with the boys and gave them some food for thought!

Ahoy Sinbad!

Many thanks to the facilitators at Greencastle who were experts in their field and generous with their time...a life at sea may beckon for some of the boys...Well done!
