‘What Students Need To Know/ Eolas rí-thábhachtach do mhicléinn’ is the title of the event which will be streamed live on the Mayo.ie Facebook page on Wednesday, January 13, at 7 pm.
The purpose of the webinar is to arm students and families with key information on the various options available to them upon completing their second-level education. Admission is free of charge.
“We are holding this event to help students, parents, and guardians as they make their all-important CAO choices,” said Pat Howley, Chairperson, Mayo Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) Education & Training Working Group, organisers of the event.
“Brian Mooney is a guidance counsellor with many years’ experience, and we are delighted that he will be on hand to dispense his wisdom.
“There is no need to register, just go to the webinar live on Facebook.com/mayodotie shortly before 7 pm on Wednesday, January 13.
“You can also send your questions beforehand to Liam.firstname.lastname@example.org.”
