The Conferring Ceremony for the Think About Teaching Class of 2020 took place on-line on Friday, November 27th. A record number of students (29) graduated from the programme, which is now into its third year. While circumstances did not allow us to celebrate in person; family, friends, staff and supporters joined on-line to share in the tremendous achievements of the students. An-bhródúil asaibh go léir. Guím gach rath oraibh don todhchaí!
