New-Bridge Integrated College was delighted to welcome Professor Kevin Tierney as our first guest speaker for our “Sixth Form LOL’s” (Lessons on Life) talks.
Professor Tierney has lectured in Psychology at Trinity College Dublin for over thirty years and is a Senior member of staff within the University. As part of our Enrichment Programme in Sixth Form at New-Bridge Integrated College we have invited a number of guest speakers to visit and present their stories on ‘Life’ to our students. We know that our students will benefit from listening to these inspirational, fascinating and true life stories that can motivate, inspire and broaden our young people’s minds.
Professor Tierney delivered a fascinating talk titled, “You Get What You Pay For”. His wide ranging presentation challenged students to think differently about the Arts, Music, and Theatre and the benefits thereof. “You pay for it, why not use it?” His entertaining talk included some great motivational tips and encouragement for our students, not just to take the opportunity to go to University but to make the most of youth and life in general, something he appears to have done himself!
Head of Sixth Form, Mr Clarke commented, “At New-Bridge Integrated College we pride ourselves on the extra experiences and enrichment we can offer to our Sixth Form students. Real life stories delivered by extraordinary people will help our students grow to be fully rounded young adults and will only add an extra dimension to the excellent Sixth Form provision we offer. Our students and staff thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from Professor Tierney’s talk and we are already looking forward to our next “Lessons on Life” speaker.”
