FIFTH YEAR STUDENTS WORK EXPERIENCE
Next week, our Fifth year students will spend a week in the workplace as they complete work placements as part of their academic programme. The experience is very valuable to our senior students, in helping them focus on areas of career interest that they wish to explore in advance of making their all-important CAO choices in Sixth year. We wish them the best of luck in their placements and would like to take the opportunity to thank the many employers who will be hosting them.
