Neven Visits Our School

Many thanks to Neven Maguire who visited our school to show his support and encouragement for our TY Mini Company ‘Wooden It’. This company are making quality hand crafted wooden products including their very popular breadboards which Neven was delighted to endorse. Wooden It are one of 11 RSC Mini Companies which will represent the school in the Cavan Enterprise Awards in the Slieve Russell hotel on March 7th.

While Neven was with us he also gave great guidance and advice to the Irish Angus group in TY who have been so successful the Certified Irish Angus Beef Schools competition so far. They are actively promoting the breed as beneficial for both farmer and consumer and have reached the national semi final stage of this competition.
Finally Neven also met with the AIB Build a Bank group from TY who have qualified for the National Final of this competition in March in the RDS. He was very interested in the work the group are doing with regard to homeless charity and poverty alleviation in Cavan and Dublin.
We really appreciate the time and advice that he gave our school and he was very complimentary of the TY pupils involved and wished all three groups well in the upcoming competitions.
