Access Programme
The Leaving Certificate class attended a “Study Skills Seminar” in St. Angela’s College as part of the Access programme. The students really engaged with the tutor and in return the tutor commented that “they were the nicest group of Leaving Certificates that she had dealt with this year and that they spoke so positively about their school”. A bus and lunch was provided free of charge to the students.

Open Day
The Leaving Certificate and Leaving Certificate Applied 2 students attended the open days in both Sligo College of Further Education and IT Sligo on Thursday 20 October last. Ms McDermott organized the event and accompanied the students on the day.

Cake Sale
A core group of seven girls organized a “cake sale” to raise money for the many thousands of people who were left homeless in Haiti in the wake of hurricane Matthew. The television pictures depicting the devastation touched their heart and prompted them into action. The group raised in excess of €110 and has also organized a fancy dress day for Thursday 27 October with seasonal fun and games during lunchtime.
