Mount Seskin’s Beating Heart of Gold

Sean Guerrine, a Sixth Year student of Mount Seskin Community College is a worthy recipient of Tallaght Person of the Year Heart of Gold award.

Charlie Ferguson, Mount Seskin’s principal said, “We are so proud of Sean here in the College. He has been an active member of Student Council for five years now. He is currently the Chairperson of the Council. Over the years Sean has been actively involved in many important events like Stand Up Week supporting LGBTQ plus students and staff, Anti-Bullying Week, Comhairle na nÓg, to name but a few, as well as fundraisers for our local St. Vincent de Paul. He is very giving of his time and makes a real difference to our College.”

Sean also works closely with St. Thomas’s national school as a mentor. “ I work with the Sixth Class students on my half day every Wednesday, helping them prepare for the next stage of their education in secondary school. I am working with Ms Laura Daly, a resource teacher from St. Thomas’s, making a video with the Sixth Class and Mount Seskin First Year students, talking about their experiences and about what to expect next year.”

Every Thursday after school Sean helps out with after school programmes in Citywise, as well as Easter and Summer programmes. Sean is the Chairperson of their Youth Steering Committee. He is currently focusing on helping with the renovation of the Health and Wellbeing room through fundraising activities.

Indeed, Sean, with the help of his two aunties, Ciara Dwyer and Michelle O’ Donohoe, organised a fund raising event in Citywest last Friday in honour of his late grandmother, Monica Guerrine, who passed recently. This successful event raised €900 for Our Lady’s Hospice in Harold’s Cross. “We wanted to do something in honour of my grandmother and to thank the hospice for their great care of her.”

Sean’s indomitable spirit, kindness and community spirit shows why he is a very worthy winner of Tallaght Heart of Gold.
