Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) in association with the Business Studies Teachers Association of Ireland (BSTAI) recently hosted a special awards night for secondary school students in the South East Region who received an A grade in Junior Certificate Higher level Business Studies in 2017. The ceremony, now in its 13th year took place at the WIT Arena on WIT’s West Campus, Carriganore, Waterford.
Close to 220 students from 46 schools in the region attended the awards ceremony with their parents, business studies teachers and school principals.
These include 61 students from across Waterford city and county, 54 attending Co Wexford schools, 45 Kilkenny city and county students, 20 across Co Carlow and 38 from schools in South Tipperary.
The ceremony celebrates and recognises excellence in Junior Certificate Business Studies. The Chairman of BSTAI Pat Younger and President of WIT Prof Willie Donnelly presented students with a scroll/certificate of achievement, and Business Teachers received recognition plaques.
Dr Thomas O’Toole, Head of School (Dean) of the School of Business at WIT said that the evening is an opportunity for parents, teachers and principals to celebrate the success of their students.
“This ceremony recognises students’ excellence, while also giving them an opportunity to view the modern campus and facilities here at WIT. In time we hope to welcome these students back to WIT as undergraduates in one of our many business courses.”
