Message from your Student Advisers

As the end of the academic year approaches we are aware that some of you are faced with added pressures. Exam time is always demanding and some of you may also be dealing with your own personal difficulties. Talking usually helps. Sharing a problem with a friend or family member can offer another perspective. Sometimes, however, it’s easier to talk in confidence to someone else. The Student Advisers are here for just that – all you have to do is call in or make an appointment at any time. For contact details click here or go to www.pleasetalk.ie.

Lockers - please remember to empty them

Please remember to remove all items from your locker by Sunday, 31 May 2015 and ensure the padlock is in place. Any items left in lockers after this date will be removed (see terms & conditions). Unfortunately lockers cannot be retained for the summer.
