TG4 fo­cus on work of Sr. Cyril in In­dia

Bray People - - Fundraiser In Aid Of Lesotho Project -

BRAY NA­TIVE Sr. Cyril Mooney is to fea­ture in a TG4 broad­cast ‘Scoil on tSo­lais’ - School of Light next Sun­day.

The pro­gramme fol­lows Moya Mac Eoin, a re­tired school tacher from Kin­vara in Gal­way who spends her sum­mers help­ing out in The Rain­bow School Pro­gramme in Kolkota, In­dia, run by Sr. Cyril.

Sr. Cyril is a Loreto nun, who last year re­ceived In­dia’s high­est civil award - the Padma Sari.

Hailed as a revo­lu­tion in ed­u­ca­tion, her school gives light and hope to the for­got­ten street chil­dren of this teem­ing city.

This af­fec­tion­ate, en­gag­ing and in­for­ma­tive doc­u­men­tary jour­neys to Kolkata with Moya and takes us into the very heart of this in­spi­ra­tional school. For the first time it gives view­ers an in­sight into how Sr. Cyril has pi­o­neered a new ap­proach to help­ing the un­der­priv­i­leged.

It is di­rected by Pran­jali Bhave, a young In­dian film­maker, now liv­ing in the west of Ire­land and will air next Sun­day at 9.30 p.m. on TG4.
