CESC Update October 2020

New Director of CESC 


We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Director, Seán Horgan, who has officially taken up his role with effect from Monday, October 5th. Seán began his teaching career in St. Mary’s on the Hill N.S. Knocknaheeny before moving to St. Patrick’s Boys’ N.S. Mallow where he was principal for the past 26 years.

Seán takes up this position at a very uncertain time for all in the greater educational community. All of our events are online for the foreseeable future as we navigate through the challenges of Covid-19. Please find a list of upcoming courses and events on www.cesc.ie - we strive to constantly update and add to this list to support your needs.

 

 

Slán le Niamh
