Tralee VTOS is celebrating 30 years and during these very challenging times it might be a good opportunity to reflect on the positive influences we, as educators, have on our students and enabling them to achieve their goals through education & training. 

Here is a contribution from a student from Tralee VTOS who was asked to complete the “What VTOS Means to Me” exercise.

 

  “WHAT VTOS MEANS TO ME”

As my time with VTOS nears an end
I think it’s fair to say ...
It was not what I expected .....
It surpassed in every way
Such choices at your fingertips
Support at every turn....
With expert advice to recognise, the strengths you need to learn

There’s “something” here for “everyone”’
The tools that you require ...
And IF you believe, you CAN achieve ....
Whate’er your hearts’ desire!

Math minded maybe not ? Computer skills forgot ?
Do not despair ..help is everywhere
So do not lose the plot !!!!

Communicate, art designs create, health & fitness ..just a few
Not to mention outdoor activities ......
And throw in a 700 piece jigsaw too !!!!

But the friendships forged amongst us all
Was for me what mattered most of all💕
Each day was full of cheer and laughter
With memories I’ll cherish from hereon after .....

So as I bid VTOS adieu .. my heartfelt thanks to all of you
For giving me the opportunity
To be part of your VTOS family ...
As my lifelong dream I now embrace ...
This is just the first chapter... so WATCH this space !!!!!
