Normally at this time of year we would meet with all the 3rd year students and their parents to discuss the next steps in their educational progress. Unfortunately this year due to the ongoing pandemic it is not possible to meet in the usual way.
Below you will find a video outlining the options available to 3rd years as they progress to Senior Cycle.
Mr Burke will be in touch with the parents of the 3rd year classes in the coming days to outline the steps that need to be taken to select a course for Senior Cycle

Hazelwood College Visit by Television Entrepreneur
Last Wednesday, John Brennan, visited Hazelwood College to talk to Business Studies students and LCVP students of the school. He spoke to the students about his own life, the struggles he endured regarding his success and gave them advice about setting up their own businesses. The students benefited greatly from his inspirational talk and some are now wishing to follow in his footsteps.
John began his entrepreneurial life at the age of 9 when he sold Christmas logs to the people in his estate. He also set up a library at a very young age and moved to Sligo when he was only 15 years of age. John Brennan is now a very successful entrepreneur and owns the Dromquinna Manor. He also runs the Kenmare Park Hotel with his brother, Francis. John and Francis are also well renowned for their television programme, “At Your Service”.
