Enrichment

 

Lower Sixth students at St. Louis Grammar are given the opportunity to be involved in an enrichment activity on alternate Wednesday afternoons. 

 

Many students have opted to gain additional qualifications during their enrichments periods.  Within school we offer qualifications in First Aid, Irish Language and Food Safety. Students can also opt to be involved in SPRED, Faith Friends, Industry visits, Sports or fundraising for Friends of Romania.  The enrichment afternoon at St. Louis enhances pupil's interpersonal and organisational skills.

 

Due to the demand for university places and the competitive nature of the world of work we believe that each pupil should be continually developing their personal portfolio of work experience. During enrichment pupils are also given the opportunity to undertake a work experience/work shadowing programme giving pupils the skills and experience that will allow them to stand out to potential employers and university admission selectors. Local employers participating in this scheme are:

St. Comgalls Primary School, Martin Residental Trust, McManus Brothers, Pinewood Nursing Home, McKeown and Company, Mount St. Michael's, Randalstown, Ballymena School of Music, Antrim Health Centre, Mid- Antrim Signs, Gordon's Castle Mall, St. Mary's, Cushendall, McKervill and Neilly Solictors, James Ballentine and Son, Fitter Feet, Curry's, Old Mill Motors, Vivo ExtraCredit Union and Boots.

 

We would like to publically thank these employers for assisting our pupils build their work experience portfolio- they are truly indebted to you.

 

Please take a look at some of the testimonials of students currently involved in various enrichment activities:
