Questions were answered, details were taken and seeds were planted into the students’ minds in what was a hugely successful day.The event is the flagship day of the Donegal IGC calendar and has gone from strength to strength over the years and is testament to the amount of hard work being done in our schools by the Guidance Counsellors.A Twitter competition was also run on the day. Students were asked to follow the @IGCDonegal twitter page and include a hashtag to be in with a chance to win one of four One-For-All vouchers worth 50 euro each.The lucky winners were Marius Doherty, St Columba’s College, Stranorlar, Owen Mc Colgan, Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana, Rosie Browne, Colaiste Chu Uladh, Ballinamore and Chloe Sweeney, Loreto Convent, Letterkenny. Congratulations to all our winners and thanks to everyone who entered.The event organisers, Mr Rory White Finn Valley College, Stranorlar, Ms Georgina White, St Columba’s College, Stranorlar and Ms Mairead Mc Gurren, Colaiste Colmcille, Ballyshannon would like to thank all the institutions for attending the event, the teachers and guidance counsellors for taking the students to the event, the students themselves for their excellent behaviour on the day and Mr Tommy Gallen and his staff at The Villa Rose Hotel. IGC CAREERS FAIR A GREAT SUCCESS – PIC SPECIAL was last modified: March 24th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CAREERS FAIRFeaturesnewspicture specialschoolslast_img read more
