During College Awareness Week itself, there were a number of College activities incorporated into regular classes. First Year students wrote about their dream job, looked at college prospectuses and designed student ID cards.
3rd Years have a tour of Trinity College to look forward to later in the year. In the meantime they also designed College ID cards and did an “Imagine Yourself in College” activity in SPHE.
4th Years reviewed their recent Junior Cert results. They worked out the number of points they would have achieved were it their Leaving Cert. They then looked at the most recent CAO figures to see if they got enough points to get their desired college course.
5th and 6th Year students had a talk from TAP about HEAR, DARE and foundation courses. Two students came in and talk about their experience in getting in and their experience of college thus far.
2nd Year students are undertaking mentoring for the year and will have a college tour in Trinity College in the new year.
