On Tuesday, three representatives from the Irish Aid team in James’ class went in to the Department of Education for the Our World Irish Aid Awards Regional Finals. Their project about the Global Goals had been shortlisted as one of the top 15 in the region covering Dublin, Greater Leinster and Northern Ireland.
This was an incredible achievement in and of itself but to our absolute delight, on the day we were chosen as one of the top three projects to go to the national finals in June. We were absolutely thrilled and to cap it all off, our project was highlighted on News2Day today! You can see it on the RTE Player here http://www.rte.ie/player/ie/show/news2day-30001385/10574387/ We’re at the very start of the episode!
Huge congratulations to the Irish Aid team (Conor, Alex, Precious, Tara, Gráinne and Rohit) on this incredible achievement!
