Careers Day – A Huge Success.

Thanks to the Guidance Department, Parents Association, Teachers, Volunteers, Past Pupils and Students who put a massive effort into organising the Careers Fair it was a great event. The Transition Year and Sixth year Students and Parents found it to be very useful and with a very wide range of careers and courses represented it offered them all an opportunity to have very useful conversations.

Academic Awards Evening.

Congratulations to all of the Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate students, who received awards at the Annual Academic Awards Evening on Thursday the 18th of October.

It provided the school with the opportunity to acknowledge the ongoing support of parents and to recognise their hugely important role in the underpinning of their child’s success.

The evening was a wonderful celebration of our students’ attainment in their examinations and their continuing success in their studies, both within the school and in third level education.

The power of tea.

This morning the 6th year students gathered together for a cup of tea and a chat.
Organised by the 6th year prefect team and Ms Clarke the sixth years took time to chat and connect in with each other before classes come to an end and exams begin. A huge thanks to Attracta who made all the tea and coffee for them. There were smiles all around as students returned to class:
“ …..this simple coffee morning meant a lot because it gave me a chance to relax with my friends during this very busy time, time to be together before the exams begin.”
