Fingal Independent - - PICTURES - By JOHN MAN­NING

ST Joseph’s Sec­ondary School in Rush has an am­bi­tious pro­gramme in its school aimed at pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity to go to col­lege for ev­ery stu­dent at the school who wants to.

In con­junc­tion with the hugely suc­cess­ful Col­lege For Ev­ery Stu­dent (CFES) pro­gramme in St. Joseph’s Sec­ondary School Rush, Col­lege Aware­ness Week ran at the school re­cently.

Sec­ond Year stu­dents were en­cour­aged to take a look into their fu­tures and were treated to a speed ca­reers day, where they had the op­por­tu­nity to speak with per­son­nel from over 25 dif­fer­ent pro­fes­sions such as a jour­nal­ist, make-up artist, an­i­mal nutritionist, FAI coach and an auc­tion­eer.

Through­out the week, speak­ers came in to talk about the wide range of op­tions avail­able to stu­dents be­yond sec­ondary school, in­clud­ing many 3rd level in­sti­tu­tions and col­leges like: Trin­ity Col­lege, DCU, DIT, DKIT, DIFE, NCAD, NCI, Plun­kett’s Col­lege and Co­laiste Dhu­laigh.

Other op­tions for in­trigued stu­dents were also ex­plored and high­lighted thanks to talks from: the Gar­daí; Dell on jobs in IT; ap­pren­tice­ships with ESB; and Ac­count­ing Tech Ire­land.

Well done to all the stu­dents and teach­ers in­volved in the run­ning of another hugely suc­cess­ful Col­lege Aware­ness Week in St. Joseph’s.
