DCS Development Day Monday 19 April 2010


Minister Micheál Martin will be visiting the school at 9.30am next Monday 19 April 2010.  This is part of the Development Day organised by the Project Uganda team to coincide with the visit of our Ugandan friends.

There will also be visitors from 13 Non-Governmental Organisations.  Each of these visitors will arrive at about 9.15am and will be assigned a helper from Transition Year.  They will be speaking to various classes at 10.10am, for a maximum of 35 minutes, including questions.  At 10.10am, the guest will be brought to other pre-assigned classes.  From 11am to 11.30am some of the guests will have stands in the library.  Interested students can visit these stands, ask questions and take literature.
