TY Student Helpers Pilgrimage to Lourdes

Eight of our TYs (and two teachers) spent last week caring for Irish young people with various additional needs in Lourdes, providing badly needed respite for their parents & guardians. It is an experience that is difficult to describe and the number of students (35) that applied to go and help is a wonderful reflection on the fine young people we have in our school. It must also be mentioned that the students raised the vast majority of the €6000 required to travel themselves which is a fantastic achievement. Our sincere thanks to anyone who helped out in any way. Beannacht Dé oraibh go léir.
