CEIST Inaugural Conference for Student Leaders

The inaugural CEIST Student Leadership conference was launched on Thursday, 29th January by Bishop Denis Nulty of the Kildare and Leighlin Diocese in St. Leo’s College, Carlow. CEIST recognises that the students in its schools today will be the leaders of tomorrow and is committed to playing a part in preparing them for that role. 

The conference will be held in St. Patrick’s College, Drumcondra on Tuesday March 24th. Each of the CEIST 110 schools will be asked to nominate three student leaders to attend the event. They will have a chance to meet with one another, to explore the possibilities of leadership as well as the values associated with being a good leader. Students who have displayed leadership in their own schools will also have an opportunity to share their experiences.
