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.
