St. Bren­dan’s as­signed Canada and Tan­za­nia in ‘Global Vil­lage’ project

Bray People - - News -

ST. BREN­DAN’S was one of a num­ber of schools tak­ing part in the ‘Global Vil­lage’ project in­volv­ing a num­ber of schools. They were as­signed Canada and Tan­za­nia as their fo­cus coun­tries on which they pre­pared a pre­sen­ta­tion.

The event in­volved a num­ber of lec­tures and pre­sen­ta­tions de­liv­ered at DLIADT. Secondary stu­dents and third-level stu­dents work to­gether to make stu­dents more cul­tur­ally and eco­nom­i­cally aware of other coun­tries through­out the world.

The project is partly funded by Dun Laoghaire Rath­down County Coun­cil and the Chil­dren’s Hope Char­ity.

The pupils felt that a trip to the Cana­dian Em­bassy would fur­nish them with a wide un­der­stand­ing and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the di­rec­tions in which they could take their projects.

They were greeted and ad­dressed by the Cana­dian Am­bas­sador Pa­trick. G. He spent over 90 min­utes with the fas­ci­nated boys who were then treated to some Tim Horton’s Cana­dian dough­nuts af­ter meet­ing Mr. Binns.

The pupils un­for­tu­nately were not able to at­tend the pre­sen­ta­tion evening due to the com­mit­ment they made to their so­cial out­reach pro­grammes. They used their ini­tia­tive to record their pre­sen­ta­tion on the school’s video record­ing equip­ment and it was shown in their ab­sence.

The global vil­lage ex­hi­bi­tion will be held in the Pavil­ion The­atre in Dun Laoghaire on March 6 and 7. It in­volves a colour­ful and var­ied pre­sen­ta­tion de­liv­ered by the stu­dents of the par­tic­i­pat­ing schools.
