Transition Year Work Experience

Transition Year Work Experience

Transition year students started their year with an induction day under the guidance of the TY Co-ordinator
Ms. Nollaig Sheehan. Part of the induction day included a talk from Dr. Joseph Moynihan on the benefits of Work Experience for the year. He encouraged the students to make informed choices, in as much as possible, with regards to their work experience. He emphasised the impact that Work Experience has on future careers and in particular how it would influence the students in their choice of subjects for Leaving Cert.
