College Awareness Week 2017

Thu, Nov 30th, 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

Next week (4-8 December 2017) is our College Awareness Week.  The main focus of this week is to get our senior students thinking seriously about colleges/careers and different opportunities  after they leave school.

We have a broad range of speakers during the week, including representatives from colleges, access programmes and professionals working in many diverse areas, who have kindly agreed to come to the school to talk to our pupils.

I would be delighted if any parents/guardians who happen to be free would come and enjoy some of our talks.

All our talks will take place in the library.

Please see attached the timetable of events for the week.

Any events which have been added,  or any events  where there has been a time change appear in red.

Please check in with your son/daughter during the week to see if any additional events have been added.

 

Marie Fitzpatrick

Guidance Counsellor.
