Maynooth Access awards presented to Newbridge's St Conleth's Community College

Professor Philip Nolan, President of Maynooth University and Rose Ryan, Director of the Maynooth University Access Programme (MAP), presented awards for exceptional achievement to second level students and teachers in an award ceremony held at Maynooth University on Saturday 14 April in John Hume Lecture Theatre 1 on North Campus. 

This annual event recognises students who have shown outstanding application, dedication and progress at school, often in the face of challenging circumstances. This ceremony is held in honour of their outstanding and inspirational contributions in education.
 
The Awards celebrate the accomplishments of  young people in 3rd Year and 6th Year from these MAP-linked schools. The schools carefully considered their nominations and have chosen the young people because of the commitment, dedication and perseverance these students have shown to their coursework, their schools and their communities. 
 
Maynooth believes that the Achievement Awards have a powerful impact at a crucial point in the lives of student participants as well as recognising the important role of teachers in directing students towards third level achievement.  St Conleths has its fair share of dedicated and highly motivated students and staff.
