The annual Awards Ceremony was held at the Bellefield GAA Complex last Wednesday, 10th December.
In attendance and presenting the Certificates was Mary Walsh, Adult Education Officer of the Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board.
There was a party atmosphere with plenty of festive food and cheer as there was a distinct Christmas flair to the celebrations. VTOS celebrated their 25th Anniversary this year and ended on a high note.
Congratulations were extended to students past and present who were presented with Awards in Business Administration and General Learning at QQI (FETAC) Level 5 with others achieving a General Learning Award at QQI (FETAC) level 3. Manual Handling certificates were presented on behalf of Mary Barron of Silver Fern.
The staff of VTOS were congratulated for their professional expertise and their dedication to ensuring that the students achieved to the maximum of their potential. The co-ordinator Eithne Agar reflected on the ‘Winter of our Discontent’ however as the days lengthen from the solstice onwards there is much to hope for with the learning and wisdom to be gained through the VTOS programme. The students were urged to use their knowledge for their own betterment and that of Society. The AEO Mary Walsh commented on the challenge undertaken by the students as they devote so much time to their studies with so many other demands on their time and energy.
So a very Happy Christmas to all our friends and associates from, if we may say ‘the present that keeps on giving’, that is VTOS Enniscorthy.
