High Achievements in the past few years

Banagher College, Colaiste Na Sionna enjoyed numerous high achievements during the past few years. The following are some of the highlights:



Four Offaly students have been selected to be the county’s STEM Ambassadors and have received scholarships from the county board. The scholarship programme was established by the Offaly County Development Board to encourage more secondary school students to get involved in science and to pursue courses and careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

The four ambassadors are:

  • Jordan Nash, Coláiste na Sionna
  • Sharon Boland, Coláiste Íosagáin, Portarlington
  • Eoin Delaney, Tullamore College
  • and Donnacha Carroll, St Brendan’s Community College, Birr.

They have since moved on to science courses at universities and ITs around the country.

Jordan Nash is now studying mechanical engineering in GMIT. Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths are very strongly promoted in Banagher College & we look forward to seeing more of our students choosing this career pathway.
