Last Thurs­day, men­tor­ing stu­dents were vis­ited by guest speaker Fidelma Far­rell from the Schools Busi­ness Part­ner­ship. Top­ics dis­cussed in­cluded prepa­ra­tion for in­ter­views for col­lege and work, and stu­dents were in­vited to mock in­ter­views tak­ing place in Bank of Ire­land Head­quar­ters in Jan­uary. This rep­re­sents a great op­por­tu­nity, in that it pre­pares the stu­dents for life in the work­ing world. St. Thomas’ Com­mu­nity Col­lege has en­joyed a suc­cess­ful part­ner­ship with Bank of Ire­land, Cabin­teely over the past num­ber of years.


Over the past few weeks, Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents have been sell­ing 2009 Cal­en­dars on the cor­ri­dors at break-times as part of their Mini-En­ter­prise project. A great deal of ef­fort was made by the stu­dents in terms of re­search, prod­uct de­vel­op­ment and sales. Well done to all in­volved.


1N stu­dents, Stu­dent Coun­cil mem­bers and Home­work Club par­tic­i­pants were treated to a day out last Fri­day as a re­ward for pos­i­tive be­hav­iour and par­tic­i­pa­tion. The group vis­ited Ark­low On Ice where the stu­dents en­joyed ice-skat­ing, fol­lowed by lunch. A great day was had by all!


Stu­dents are busy re­hears­ing for the up­com­ing Christ­mas event which will take place next Tues­day. Both staff and stu­dents are looking for­ward to it.


First Year, Sec­ond Year, Third Year and Fifth Year stu­dents are com­menc­ing their Christ­mas Ex­am­i­na­tions this week. Best of luck to all!

Merry Christ­mas Wish­ing all staff and stu­dents a very happy Christ­mas and New Year!
