LCA students welcome two guest speakers from the Dunmore Conference

On Thursday 2nd May, the LCA 6th Yr class and Ms. Scarry were given a very informative talk by Mary and Geraldine from the Dunmore Conference. The two ladies spoke about the work that the local St. Vincent de Paul Society does, how they fundraise and how someone could volunteer to join. The talk took place as part of a key assignment for Vocational Preparation and Guidance subject in the LCA programme. 

Dunmore Community School host a very successful Careers Expo 2019

Ms. Scarry assisted by the Transition Year and LCA students in Dunmore Community School hosted a very successful Careers Expo in the school on Friday 8th March. Our 3rd year, TY, LCA, 5th and 6th year students got a fantastic opportunity to speak to representatives from 30 information stands which included third level colleges and universities, financial institutions and local construction and pharamaceutical industries. It was wonderful to welcome parents to participitate in this very informative event as well as students and staff from other post primary schools in the local area. Now that a little time has passed since the event hopefully students have had time to process the information they gathered and this is helping them make informed choices about TY, LCA and senior cycle subject choice options. Our 6th year students can also use this information to help them prepare for upcoming PLC interviews, decide on CAO ‘change of mind’ options or deciding on apprenticeships that they are interested in.

Senior Cycle Options Night

Thanks to everyone that came along tonight. We hope you found it informative but if you have any queries, please feel free to contact the office or send us an email.

I would especially like to thank our 3 students, Aryn, Andrea and Chloe, who spoke about their experiences of TY and LCA.

As promised, please find links to the presentations, relevant links and the Subject choice explanation video and please get in contact if you have any queries.
