On Wednesday last Mrs. Aine Hogan, a solicitor in the town came to Arklow CBS and spent the afternoon talking to and engaging with the Transition Year students.

Transition Year students are very grateful to Mrs. Hogan for not only giving up her time so generously but also for sponsoring a Law School Day which they participated in on Tuesday. This was an expensive course and Mrs. Hogan covered the whole cost of it. Arklow CBS would like to express their appreciation to Mrs. Hogan for her generosity.
