Young people leaving school early without any qualifications has always been an issue in West Tallaght. With this in mind Sr. Mairead developed the leaving certificate programme in 1999. Since then, over 200 students have studied for and received a Leaving Certificate through Youth Horizons, which has allowed them to progress onto further education or into the work force.
