Guidance & Counselling
The Guidance Counsellor is an integral part of our Pastoral Care Team and liaises with the Year Heads and Tutors on a weekly basis to ensure that the needs of the students are being identified and met wherever possible. Ms Sandra Murray is the guidance counsellor and she works with all students from First to Sixth Year. She assists in the induction and initiation of First Years. She also monitors and assists Second and Fifth Years and guides Third Years and Transition Years with their subject choices.
The Guidance Counsellor helps to identify each student’s potential and offers advice on suitable further education and career opportunities for them on leaving school. Career Guidance is a timetabled subject for all Senior Cycle students and individual appointments are offered to all Sixth Year students to help with subject selection, career advice and college courses.
The Guidance Counsellor is available to meet with parents where necessary and is also present at Parent Information Nights to offer guidance and support for subject selection for both Junior Cert and Leaving Cert.
