3rd Level Information event

Past pupils sharing of knowledge a great success.
Leaving Certificate Pres Tralee students were given a one of a kind opportunity on Friday 11th January  from an enthusiastic cohort of the school’s past pupils on the career paths they have chosen. Using the format of a parent teacher meeting students were enabled to work in small groups with our past pupils. This unique initiative now in its fifth year co ordinated by Guidance Counsellors Mary Mulcahy  and Bridin Kearney has proven to be popular with Leaving Certs feeling more assured and confident afterwards.
