We were incredibly proud last Friday as part of our College Awareness Week to welcome back a past pupil, Slaney Cox who spoke to our 6th Class about her experience in Trinity College.
Slaney left Scoil Cholmcille in 2006 and went to Cabinteely C.S. After leaving school she got a job, had her daughter Lucy and decided to go back to college as an adult.
Through her hard work & dedication in her chosen course of nursing, she was awarded a foundation scholarship in 2019.
This highly prestigious award has a long standing history in Trinity College and requires students to display a breadth of knowledge beyond their standard coursework. Previous recipients of this award have been past President, Mary Robinson, creator of Dracula, Bram Stoker & Nobel prize winner, Seamus Heaney. We are very proud to include our past pupil, Slaney in such exalted company. She delivered a hugely inspiring talk to our sixth class students hopefully prompting some to follow in her footsteps. We wish Slaney the very best as she continues her studies and her future career.
