Guidance Counselling and Career Guidance


Sligo Grammar School is very aware of the many challenges and difficulties our students face in their lives. The school offers in-house guidance counselling as well as co-ordinating with outside bodies such as Tusla and the HSE.  All students and their parents are encouraged to make use of these services if they feel they need to. 

Career Guidance is also offered to students on an on-going basis from Transition Year through to 6th Year. 

Activities, workshops, Lectures and Awareness Weeks are routinely held to support the mental, emotional and physical well-being of our students. Visits to Universities and Colleges as well as talks and workshops are part of the Career Guidance programme for the Senior School 


Speaker  Oran Doherty from North West Regional Skills outlining where future jobs will be and what employers are looking for in their employees, it was very informative.
