Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT), in association with the Business Studies Teachers Asssociation of Ireland (BSTAI), held a special awards night this month for students in the southeast who received an A grade in Junior Certificate Higher level Business Studies this year.
The ceremony, now in its eighth year, took place on Tuesday evening, October 9, in the main Cork Road Campus at WIT. Over 280 students from 50 schools in the region (Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny,Carlow and South Tipperary) attended the awards ceremony with their parents, Business Studies teachers and school principals. The ceremony celebrates and recognises excellence in Junior Certificate Business Studies. The National president of BSTAI Jenny Harrington and president of WIT Ruaidhri Neavyn presented students with a scroll/certificate of achievement, and Business Teachers received recognition plaques. Dr Tom O’Toole, head of the School of Business at WIT said that the evening was an opportunity for parents, teachers and principals to celebrate the success of their students. “This Ceremony recognises students’ excellence, while also giving them an opportunity to view the modern campus and facilities here at WIT,” he said.
“In time we hope to welcome these students back to WIT as undergraduates in one of our many Business Courses.”
