A number of Leaving Certificate students of 2016 at Davitt College, Castlebar dropped in to their school recently to say goodbye and thank teachers and staff for their six years of post-primary education. These young men and women are embarking on Third Level courses in universities and training colleges throughout Ireland for the academic year 2016/2017. They are spreading their wings to all four provinces of Ireland – from Trinity College Dublin to University College Cork to N.U.I. Galway to the Aberystwyth University, Wales.
“There is definitely a trend towards the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) this year,” said Bernie Rowland, Davitt College principal. “We offer all four science subjects at Senior Level, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Agricultural Science.” “There has been a steady increase in the uptake of these subjects over the past two/three years and this is evident when you consider the degree programmes students are choosing at Third Level,” she said.
