Congratulations to Marie, Lillian, Lavinia and Geraldine who graduated from

Last Friday on the eve of International Literacy Day Minister for Education, Ruairi Quinn at the Department of Education and Skills launched a new website www.helpmykidlearn.ie to the media.
NALA will be running an on-going promotional campaign for the site and we have been asked to:
- promote the site with parents and groups that we work with or meet,
- suggest ideas of how best we could let parents and carers know about the site,
- put a link from our website to it: www.helpmykidlearn.ie
- provide them with ideas for content for updating the site.
NALA will be adding to the site on an on-going basis and so feedback from parents is very important.
As part of the Joint South Tipperary VEC, Skills for Work Initiative and the Carrick -On-Suir Business Association (COSBA) the participants completed projects highlighting just some examples of the rich heritage and cultural wealth of Carrick –On –Suir.
Projects were completed and presented on including The Ahenny Crosses; The Old Bridge; A walk through the sites of Carrick – On- Suir and The GAA in Carrick –On-Suir. A project was also completed on the e ‘hidden history’ of The Carrick-On -Suir Workhouse and its legacy.
