Student Experiences


“I can only say THANK YOU for this 2 years, teachers gave us the tools and waked up in us the motion. At the end I have to say “FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS no matter what.”
Marcella Tomobolini, past Kinsale College student

“I was a little apprehensive returning but I needn’t have of worried. Thanks to the wonderful teacher who makes time for everybody. Be it as a group or as individuals no creative or technical problem is too small or too big and is treated with respect and encouragement.”

“All the students have different life experiences. Some come straight from school and will have developed computer skills but little design knowledge, which the teacher brings out. Others like me want to update and improve lost skills.”
Louise McKeon.
