Careers in the Defence Forces.


Our senior students, accompanied by Ms.Maher (Guidance Counsellor) and Ms. Feehan attended the Defence Forces Open Day in Sarsfield Barracks on Monday, September 25.  The day presented a fantastic opportunity for students to speak directly to the Men and Women of the Defence Forces about career opportunities and overseas service within the organisation.  Students received a presentation of military equipment and weapons systems, getting hands on with a wide variety of weapons and army vehicles.


The students and accompanying teachers wish to sincerely thank all the Defence Force Personnel for giving so freely of their time in speaking with and answering all our questions on the day.
