Ready, Steady, Go for our Third Level Students

They have ended up in UCD, DCU, NUI Maynooth, DIT, Blanchardstown IT, Tallaght IT, Dublin Business School, Dundalk IT, Killester College, Marino College, Coláiste Dhulaigh, Whitehall College, Plunkett College, Ballsbridge College and Ballyfermot College. At this time of the year our thoughts turn to our past pupils. The summer is over, the post exam holidays seem like an eternity away. The summer jobs are fading into the memory as fast as the money earned is spent! Around now, most will be starting their third level life. Good luck to you all! Some have gone straight to higher education or pre-university, others are starting further education at level 5 and level 6. A smaller number have started work, some with the intention of going on to study following a year out. We thank, in particular, guidance counsellor, Philip McElwee and year head Sheila O’Sullivan for their untiring work in advising these young adults. The breadth of institutions hosting our students this year speaks volumes about the individual consideration given to them and we wish Philip and Sheila well in their retirement;
