Ms Clesham organised a very interesting public speaking programme for Transition year students recently with Alan Devine ( Actor in Fair City). The students were afforded the opportunity through a series of fun workshops to get up on their feet and talk. The aim was to help the students find confidence in their voice , connect with their audience and create and deliver a short speech. The students really enjoyed the experience . On their first day with Alan they were encouraged to discover the basic skills required to present themselves and their ideas to an audience in an interesting and engaging manner. On day 2, each student delivered a short speech which they had created. Alan complimented the effort put in by the students and the students found the whole experience very enjoyable .
Ms Clesham, Fr Fergal and a group of senior students attended the Young SVP Social Justice Conference today in Knock. They joined other students from Galway, Mayo and Roscommon for a very inspirational day. The aim of the day was to inspire students in the West Region to learn more about social issues and help them to get involved in youth led social action with the Young SVP Programme. The interactive dimension appealed to the young people and they were involved in lots of activities throughout the day. The special guest speakers Fr Peter McVerry, John Lonergan, Joanne O’Riordan and Dr Cara Augustonborg were inspirational in every way and lead the discussions at each table along with other people from varied backgrounds.Special thanks to Paddy Daly ( Youth Development Officer) and his team for organising a very inspirational day for everyone.
