  • This is then approved by the Year Head and presented to the Board of Management.
  • One student from each term is then selected as Student of the Term.
  • This student and their parents are invited for a presentation ceremony before the Board of Management of Tallaght Community School in order for the Principal, Chairperson of the Board and other board members to personally commend the student on this achievement.
  • Every Year group will have an assembly with their Year Head and a member of management, during this, any student who has received an award will be praised and recognised for their contributions in front of their peers.
