Coláiste Mhuire News: Past Pupils return to Coláiste Mhuire

On Thursday January 23, five past pupils returned to Coláiste Mhuire to give 6th year students an insight into college life. Sinead Long, David Hayes, Jamie McCarthy, Shannon O’Sullivan and Steven Carrig spoke about the challenges students face during the transition from second level to third level. They gave advice on how to study, explaining the importance of planning and organisation in order to reduce stress, especially when it comes to meeting deadlines. They spoke about college life and the many new opportunities that opened up for them academically and personally. The 6th years found the presentation very interesting, especially coming from the perspective of students who went to school in Coláiste Mhuire. We would like to sincerely thank all five speakers for giving their time, and giving something back to the school!
