Student Support Worker

Crescent provides a part-time Student Support Worker to combat educational disadvantage in the school. This position is currently filled by Ann Guinee.



CCC Student Support office is taking a stall again this year in Our Lady of Lourdes Christmas Market which takes place on Thursday 1st December and we are asking for parents and students to donate any of the following for sale on the day:

Good quality second hand children’s books, all ages; arts/craft items, knit goods, baked goods and home produce such as jams/chutneys are all welcome. On the day, fresh produce can be dropped to the West End hall beside Lidl on Childers Road from 10.00 a.m. onwards. Before that goods can be dropped in to the Student Support office in the school at any time.

All proceeds go to support our own students and your contributions are much appreciated.

SSW supports students identified as educationally disadvantaged (through the referral system above) to complete senior cycle of secondary school, to have maximum attendance during their school years, to participate fully in the life of the school and to maximise their own potential within the school’s Jesuit ethos and system of education.
