Stu­dents host work­shop on an­i­mal wel­fare

Bray People - - NEWS -

PRES BRAY'S 27 Tran­si­tion Year Stu­dents in­vited a num­ber of stu­dents from Loreto Bray, Dalky and Swords to their school last week for an an­i­mal wel­fare work­shop.

The group or­gan­ised a dy­namic event cen­tres around the is­sues sur­round­ing an­i­mals and their rights. There was a wealth of fas­ci­nat­ing in­for­ma­tion and ac­tiv­i­ties pre­pared by the stu­dents.

The in­spi­ra­tional two-hour work­shop pro­moted much de­bate and dis­cus­sion and opened the eyes of many of the vis­it­ing stu­dents to new ideas.

Some of the top­ics ex­plored in­cluded an­i­mal ex­per­i­men­ta­tion, in­ten­sive farm­ing, the equine cri­sis, puppy breed­ing, the use of an­i­mals in en­ter­tain­ment, and fur farm­ing to name but a few.

'We would like to thank all those who par­tic­i­pated in the work­shop and their teach­ers for bring­ing them to the col­lege,' said teacher Clifton Rooney. 'We would also like to con­grat­u­late the stu­dents from Pre­sen­ta­tion Col­lege Bray who were truly out­stand­ing in their or­gan­i­sa­tional abil­i­ties and their ca­pac­ity to de­liver some very chal­leng­ing con­cepts and ideas in a stim­u­lat­ing way.'
