Amazing news broke last week about a young boy named Taylor Bergin who attends Corville National School.
The news stated he has received the scholarship of a lifetime lasting five years in Clongowes College in Kildare. Taylor has been attending Corville National School for the past eight years and has undertaken numerous projects but this is definitely his proudest achievement to date.
Having learned about this opportunity last August, both Taylor’s mum Kim and his school Principal Mr Slattery set about applying for the scholarship. Kim, Taylor, Mr. Slattery and Mr. Meade visited Clongowes College and met with various College staff. While they were there they met and were interviewed by the Deputy Principal of Clongowes Martin Wallace, who was very impressed with Taylor.
Taylor can now leave Corville National School and move to Clongowes to complete his secondary education on this Scholarship.
Mr Slattery is very proud of Taylor’s many achievements and stated that the whole school is celebrating and hopes he is the first of many Corville pupils to attend such an amazing school. For our school to be successful for such an award is testament to the work undertaken by all the staff, friends and especially by the parents in our school.
While in Corville Taylor has achieved numerous honors both in school and on the sports field. He is bursting with excitement for September to come, while he knows he will be away from his family for his studies he can’t wait to commence his new school. Corville National School wishes Taylor every success and we hope that he will be a shining example of what can achieved with hard work.
