The cosmetics group undertook a very successful cosmetics morning in the Ballymun Family Resource Centre to celebrate International Women’s Day. The students provided an array of treatments and the feedback was extremely positive.
Ballymun Youthreach took part in the UNICEF Second Chance Education Seminar in Tunis on the 28th, 29th December 2017. The centre was invited as one of ten international education centres to present their models as a directive for new implementations in second chance education in Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria under the guidance of UNICEF. The full list of models chosen were Ballymun Youthreach (Ireland), Centre de la Deuxieme Chance (Morocco), Dobbanto (Hungary), Ecole de la Deuxieme Chance Estuaire de la Loire (France), Ecole Vanguard (Canada), Ensiegnement de Promotion Sociale (Belguim), Luminus Education (Jordan), Microlycee de Senart (France), Penascal Kooperatiba (Spain) and Mission Locale de Marseille (France).
The seminar took place over two days and heard from the international experiences of each model as well as hosting individual workshops with each representative. Lionel Duffy, the co-ordinator of Ballymun Youthreach hosted five workshops discussing the practicalities of implementing second chance education structures in North Africa. The seminar was also attended by three government ministers from Tunisia and a host of education experts from Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria.

Congratulations to Katie Rooney and Ryan Keeley, seen here receiving their prizes from Joe. Winners also included Chloe Keogh and Amy Hennessy. The all – centre Maths quiz was a particular success with a very boisterous teachers team narrowly taking the honours. Well done to all involved and in particular to Joe for organising all the events.
Ballymun Youthreach was delighted to take part in the annual Ballymun Otherworlds festival this year.
