College Awareness Week 2019

Another very successful College Awareness Week in St Joseph's Secondary School.
College Awareness Week 2019

College Awareness week in St Joseph’s involves many events and activities organised to promote the benefits of going to college and help students of all ages to become college ready. It’s a fantastic opportunity to begin the conversation about going to college and helps students to realise that having a post secondary school plan is important and necessary. In this school we celebrate the benefits of all aspects of Further Education, this could be an apprenticeship, a Fetac/PLC course or a CAO application to a third level Institution.

Speed Careers
This year saw the return of the much anticipated "Speed Careers" organised by Ms Mackin for the 2nd Year students. This event is always a very successful afternoon in St Joseph's and this year was no exception. Well done to Ms Mackin and her TY Helpers. It was obvious that the 2nd year students learned a lot from this expereince and had an absolute ball.

3rd Level Education in DCU
An excellent presentation was given by Colette from DCU about all the different courses available to our 6th year students.
Last year 17 of our students progressed onto 3rd level education in DCU.
