Whether you are in 1st year, or leaving Cert, it is never to early (or late!) to check out all the study options available to you so we welcome all secondary school students, and level 5 and 6 students to this event.

Some lunch will be provided, and a plant from the nursery to take home with you.

We look forward to welcoming you on the day, but please do note, this event is taking place in Kildalton College in Piltown, Co. Kilkenny (and not Waterford IT).
