Successful mentoring program with Circet

On Tuesday 17th May eleven sixth year students from Collinstown attended their final mentoring session in the offices of KN Circet in Cloverhill. The program, run by Business in the Community (BITC), matched eleven students with eleven staff members of Circet. Over two years, despite all the difficulties with the pandemic, students and mentors continued to meet. At the last session all participants agreed that it had been of great benefit.

Ms Connolly, the Year Head and Dr John O’Malley, the program coordinator, expressed thanks to all the mentors and in particular the CFO Eamonn O’Kennedy and Laura Mitchell who have organised and given huge support to the program in Circet. Also there to receive praise and thanks from everyone involved was Andrea Lazenby Simpson who is the BITC coordinator.

Collinstown Park looks forward to continuing this excellent program.
