Ballymakenny College News

  • We are delighted to announce that we will be welcoming 180 first year students to Ballymakenny College in August.
  • The enrolment for 2018 -2019 is now open. Please see our school website for enrolment forms.

Registration for 2017-2018

The Board of Management has set a registration fee of €100 for Ballymakenny College students. Our school would not be able to provide our students with high quality resources without this fee. This registration fee covers a range of costs which have been listed below and we believe it represents very good value for money. It covers the following: student journal; locker; 24hr insurance; student awards; extra-curricular events; text service and photocopying for the year. If parent(s)/guardians have issues concerning this registration fee they can contact the principal directly.

The closing date for the registration fee of €100 is Friday 15th of September, 2017. You have the option of paying online through VS Ware or by dropping the fee into Susan in the office. We would recommend you use our online facility. The convenience of the online facility is that you can make payments in instalments. If you do not know your VS Ware password, please get in touch with Susan and she will text it to you immediately.
