Coaching Your Teenager
The Guidance Department at St. Finian’s Community College is run by Ms. Rosemarie Barrett and Ms. Niamh Horan.
St. Finian’s Community College has two guidance counsellors and one counsellor who provides a complete and confidential service to our students. We have a fully equipped careers library.
We support the emotional, educational and social well-being of the students in the following ways.
We provide guidance and information on subject choices, courses and levels. We also inform students about their options for third level study and guide them towards the best choice for them. We assist them in the transition to further and higher education.
This focuses on motivation, learning and self-management. We provide advice on study skills, planning, exam preparation and techniques.
In times of particular need or crisis, we offer support, care and advice in conjunction with parents and guardians.
