Students applaud Duffy’s SuperValu!

As a finalist in the national Generation Apprenticeship Schools competition, St. Nathy’s College along with schools, Youthreach and Community Training Centre finalists in the 2020 Generation Apprenticeship competition, have been honouring businesses and individuals around the country who are stepping up to keep our community safe.

St. Nathy’s team members Ella Gallagher, Shauna Luby, Bethany Murphy, Rachael Davey, Ericka Ní Mhathuna, Anna Murray, David McGreal, Marcus Flynn and Padraig Taheny said: “We would like to thank the staff at Duffy’s SuperValu Ballaghaderreen for all their effort and hard work in keeping us stocked up during Covid-19. We are delighted to present them with our ‘A’ grade award”.

Organised by SOLAS, the competition asked entrants to build an A letter (based on the Generation Apprenticeship brand) from materials supplied that were previously destined for landfill.

“The competition is in its final stages and we have finalists who have created brilliant work,” said Andrew Brownlee, Chief Executive of SOLAS.





As a way of keeping students engaged and motivated in their wider studies the competition promoters invited the finalists to think about how their competition entries which are in the form of 3D letter A installations could be used to celebrate what the people of this country are doing to keep each other safe.

The finalists have all inputed into short videos to explain their A grade choices. They can be accessed at
