PARENTS ASSOCIATION AGM
The parents of Colaiste Eoin were delighted to welcome Billy Redmond, educational consultant to their AGM. Billy was a former Home Economics teacher and went on to become a Guidance Counsellor. In 2006 Mr Redmond went secondment to the Department of Education to work as a Development Officer for the N.B.S.S (The National Behaviour Support Service). He went on from this position to become the National Coordinator at Second Level for the N.I.P.T (The National Induction Programme for Teachers). Billy has a wealth of experience as a principal teacher but also as someone who has worked with teenagers in a supportive capacity as well. The audience was enthralled as Billy told them how to help their teenagers cope with second level, subject choices, career progression and simply being a teenager. His words of advice and support were invaluable.
