Congratulations to Emily O’Dwyer, Transition Year who won a trip to Strasbourg on the Graduate online civic awareness competition www.graduate.ie. Emily will be accompanied by twenty five other students on the trip which takes place next month in March. They will spend one full day at the European Parliament where they will take part in Euroscola which is a youth parliament and will involve them taking part in discussions on a number of pre selected topics about the E.U with students from other member states.
The aim of the graduate competition is to increase students’ civic, social and political awareness in an innovative, fun and engaging manner. It encourages students to develop an understanding of how various public institutions work, how they interact with young people and how they impact upon their everyday lives, as well as using their internet and computer skills.
Congratulations Emily, and enjoy the trip!
