The 6th Years attended the Higher Options event organised by the Irish Times in conjunction with the Institute of Guidance Counsellors (IGC) on Friday 18th September in the RDS. They also attended the Education Fair on Thursday 15th October 2015 in Parnell’s GAA Club, Coolock. On this occasion they were joined by class 6S who are following the Leaving Certificate Applied Programme. There were representatives from the Universities, Institutes of Technology and Colleges of Further Education available to speak to our students about courses, careers and alternative progression routes in the event that individuals do not succeed in securing their first choice on the CAO form.
Members of the Defence Forces, including the Air Corps, were also available to speak to students. There were also representatives from voluntary organisations who encouraged those attending the event to consider volunteering as an excellent way of gaining invaluable work experience.
