JUST reaches 100
Jesuit University Support and Training (JUST) in Ballymun, which began with 20 students in 2006, has now 100 on its list. Local newspaper Northside People West gives an enthusiastic account of the benefits JUST offers to Ballymun students. Con MacGib, for example, had fortnightly one-to-one sessions with Fr Paddy Greene. “It helped me a lot”, says Con. “Paddy introduced assignment topics by giving me options, yet he encouraged me to do the research. Then when I completed the work, he would help me correct essay layout and grammar. They weren’t serious sessions, they were laid back, and it made my experience more enjoyable. I’d recommend anyone thinking about college to go and talk to JUST.” It is designed to help students training in any learning programme.
