On Tuesday 24th March, three students from the student council, Sarah, Bethan and Tomas, with their teacher Ms. Hogan attended the first CEIST Student Leadership Conference in St. Patrick's
College, Dublin. We were first welcomed with a speech from Dr. Marie Griffin and the lighting of the CEIST candle. While Ms. Hogan attended a session on mindfulness, the students attended two different workshops about leadership. In the first workshop the students discovered the different types of leaders we have nationally and internationally. In the second workshop, they discussed how to be a good and effective leader and the attributes associated with a good leader. After meeting up with Ms. Hogan, we attended a speech by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny. In the afternoon, we listened to presentations from other students explaining the leadership roles they undertake in their own schools.
