The Villa Rose Hotel in Ballybofey was the excellent venue for the annual Careers Fair organised by the Donegal Branch of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors.
5th year students from Mulroy College were among1500 students from secondary schools across Co Donegal who attended throughout the day. There were almost 40 third level institutions from across Ireland, England, Wales and The Netherlands gathered to inform the students on the myriad of options available to them after their Leaving Certificate.
The Villa Rose was a hive of activity as the eager masses collected their pamphlets, prospectuses (as well as the odd free pen!) from the universities and colleges.
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.
