TY Careers Evening for Students

TY Careers Evening for Students

TY Careers Night for Students  - January 12th 2016

‘Insight informs Decisions’

Our 4th Year Parent Representatives Michelle Davis and Caoimhe O’Neill assisted our three Loreto Foxrock Guidance teachers and Ms Early, TY Coordinator, in organising this years’ TY Careers Evening for students.

The evening involved six speakers each of whom gave a ten minute presentation on their career journey; what they studied in college, their post-graduate years and a description of their current role. There was a broad range of careers represented -   Medicine, Financial Trading, Consumer Psychology, Beauty Therapy/ Personal Training, Marketing and the Law.

Students found the content very interesting. Their feedback included that the sessions gave them a greater awareness of a wider range of options open to them, from Leaving Certificate subject choices and college opportunities, to career options. Many made the connection with the importance of subject choices now, vis a vis future options.

The students also found it helpful to discover that there are a variety of pathways into many careers, apart from the standard college courses (options are available!)

Each of our speakers gave time at the end for student questions.

All in all it was a very successful evening where students and career professionals connected. We are very grateful to our Guidance Counsellors, Ms. O’Malley, Ms. Henry, Ms. O’Connell, our TY coordinator Ms Early and of course all the speakers for their time and valuable advice.

Spelling Bee Success

Congratulations to our school Spelling Bee team (Ciara Duffy, Hephzibah Fubara, Nicole Gallagher, Rosie McCullagh) who today put in a wonderful performance in the Inter-schools' Spelling Bee in Belvedere College.  Special mention must be made of Rosie McCullagh (3rd Year) who ended up 2nd overall after a head-to-head sudden death 'spell-off' with the eventual winner - a student from Loreto Beaufort.
On behalf of all in Foxrock, we'd like to congratulate all students who took part in the 'Bee', and thank the organisers, especially Aileen Ivory from Belvedere College.
Well done again girls! - you were brilliant today.
