Last week we in Scoil Pol were delighted to be informed that one of our students, Stacey O'Mahony, had been awarded first place in the LCA category of the National Career Skills Competition 2013 for her excellent understanding of the career of Hairdressing and the skills she observed and developed during her work experience.

Stacey wins an Apple iPad and was presented with The Winner's Cup. The school was presented with €1,000 towards the school's Guidance Programme. The Award Ceremony was held in the Clock Tower, at the Department of Education and Skills on Marlborough Street, Dublin 1 on Tuesday 21st May at 11.00am.

Stacey, Mr. Michael O' Hara school principal, Mrs Elma Power LCA co-ordinator, and Stacey's friend Clara attended the event.
The Minister for Training and Skills at the Department of Education & Skills, Mr Ciaran Cannon TD presented this year's prizes. Refreshments were served after the prize giving.

One again, congratulations to Stacey on her success. Given that Careers Portal received over 1,000 applications across all programmes this year, and the standard was very high, this was a great achievement for her.

A second Student of Scoil Pol, Elaine Rea was placed in the top eight entries nationwide, for her excellent understanding of the career of childcare and the skills she observed and developed while on her work experience. Elaine received a certificate of merit in recognition of her participation in the competition.

On behalf of all in Scoil Pol, we congratulate our two students on their much deserved achievements.
