Students host workshop on animal welfare
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.'
