The event celebrates and recognises excellence in Junior Certificate Business Studies. The national president of BSTAI, Jenny Harrington and the president of WIT, Ruaidhri Neavyn presented students with a scroll/certificate of achievement, while Business teachers received recognition plaques. Dr. Tom O’Toole, head of the School of Business at WIT said the evening was an opportunity for parents, teachers and principals to celebrate the success of their students. “This ceremony recognises students’ excellence, while also giving them an opportunity to view the modern campus and facilities here at WIT. In time we hope to welcome these students back to WIT as undergraduates in one of our many Business Courses”, he said.
