We had a great day at the College of Sanctuary launch in Athlone Institute of Technology yesterday.
It was a day to meet old and new friends, to talk about the things we had achieved over the past year and to plan new adventures. Lovely food, courtesy of the college catering students, too!
There was a lot of good news too.
AIT have announced the following for current and former residents of the Athlone DP site:
- Six free spaces on the 3rd level access course each year
- Three scholarships each year to degree courses. This involves free fees and a contribution to study expenses.
- Commitment to support and develop the online learning program
We are deeply indebted to AIT for many years of help, support and friendship. The president, staff, and students have helped in uncountable ways for a long time.
I hope no one else will be offended if I single out three outstanding members of staff. We owe more to Theresa, Chris and Shay than we can ever acknowledge or repay.
