A few updates for Campaign Academy, Donegal.
Max Number - 7 students from the school. Anyone interested let me( Ms. Farren) know before Wednesday 15th November.
Dates and venue
First session is An Grianan Hotel, Burt. As for the date, I am hoping to hold session one on Tuesday 9th January and it will run from approximately 10am to 3.00pm. After this session, students will need to begin planning and carrying out there in school/community campaigns. After our first session, we will find a date for the next session. All sessions will be fully supervised by Concern members of staff who are Garda vetted – we are delighted if you or another member of staff are able to come along with your students but appreciate that getting substitution can be a challenge. You Once the venue is confirmed, I will send out permission slips which need to be completed for each student.
Regarding the transport, we will cover travel costs and I can look into hiring a small bus to collect from schools which are near to each other. To give you an idea of the schools who are interested, we currently have:
Moville Community College
Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana
Carndonagh Community School
Mulroy College, Loreto Milford
In terms of the residential, I am trying to find a centre which is half way between both Donegal and Dublin to cater for both campaign academy in Dublin and Donegal. I will keep you updated on this but this hopefully will take place late January time after discussion with all teachers involved.
Finally, if you could let me know the names of the students that you wish to take part. We can take a maximum of seven from each school. I understand that this is a small number, but the aim is that the students who come along will get the rest of their peers involved!
