Congrats to the students of the college who did great work in fundraising for the recent Shoe Box Appeal for Team Hope. Proceeds go to Eastern European and African countries in need. Students are pictured with event organiser Ms. Cliona Feerick.
Former Guidance Counsellor, Joe Long, returned to the school on Thursday November 7th to meet the Leaving Cert students who are taking the Link Modules course as one of their subjects. Students taking this subject are assessed on a Portfolio of work they have to prepare including a CV and reports on their Visit Out to a local factory, a Career Investigation and a Diary of their experience of Work Shadowing. They also have to present an interview which is recorded on DVD and included with their portfolio. Joe was helping prepare them for this interview and as part of the preparation he showed them a specially made short film on the interview process with practical tips on how to make a positive impact. Past pupil Jonathan Walsh from Dunmore was the main star of the film and it also included contributions from well known media figures, Jim Carney, Liam Horan and Ollie Turner. Their interviews will be recorded next week and we wish them well as they face the camera!
Congrats to the College Choir who competed on Thursday November 7th in the Sligo International Choral Festival. Well done to choir mistress Ms. Connie Burke and also for the assistance from deputy principal, Ms. Brighid Cannon.
