Group C, who in partnership with Amplify Youth NI are planning their intergenerational week in May as part of the Bealtaine festival visited City Hall this week. The group were kindly given a tour by Counsillor Paul McAuliffe of City Hall and the Council Chambers as well as the Museum and an overview of Comhairle naNog. The group were also joined by Barry Andrews MEP in the museum for some fascinating stories about the Andrews family linkage to the 1916 Rising.
Intergenerational Week will take place in Ballymun Youthreach from May 7th to May 10th and will feature a week long schedule of events including picture framing, social media classes and interactive art classes. The week promises to be a wonderful opportunity for senior citizens in the community to interact with our students and hopefully a lot of mutual learning will take place.
Well done to John and Group C for planning such a great week and thanks to Paul for a very insightful tour of City Hall and to Annabelle from Innovate Dublin for setting up the tour.
