Students and past pupils at the career paths event on Friday.

LEAVING Certificate Presentation Tralee students were given a one of a kind opportunity on Friday last from an enthusiastic cohort of the school’s past pupils on the career paths they have chosen.

Using the format of a parent/teacher meeting, students were enabled to work in small groups with our past pupils.
