5LCA Mini Company

5LCA completed their enterprise module as part of Vocational Preparation and Guidance (VPG).

Students undertook a study of entrepreneurs in Ireland and then they came up with their own ideas to become budding entrepreneurs – they narrowed their choice down to a car wash and a pop up lunch time shop.

Their teacher Ms O Keeffe is vey proud of all their hard work and the learning gained from their involvement in enterprise education.

  5. Reduced inequalities
  6. Responsible consumption and production

Leaving Certificate Graduation 2021

Today the Leaving Certificate class of 2021 came together (albeit in different circumstances) to celebrate their last 6 years in Nenagh College. The graduation was live streamed to each Leaving Certificate classroom. While not the graduation that many would have liked, it was beautifully put together by Ms. Quigley with special words from their Year Head Ms Clarke, LCA Coordinator Mr. Johnston, teacher Ms. O’ Gorman, parent Mr. Declan Kinsella and a blessing from Fr Des Hillery. There was also a special message on behalf of school management, Mr. Damien Kennedy and Mr. Stephen O’ Meara.
A special thanks to the 6th year students who did readings for the ceremony. Also thank you to 1st year student Gaja Lustrynowicz (sibling of 6th year student) who read a heart felt message to the Leaving Cert class of 2021. Finally thank you to Ms. Beirne and Ms. Knight for the beautiful artwork and to Trish and her team of Get Fresh for the refreshments. On a final note Nenagh College would like to wish the Leaving Certificate class the very best for the future. You will be missed.
