Delighted Cashel Community School transition year students Chloe Mc Carthy , Grainne Ryan and Orla Gahan last week picked up a cheque €1000 from the Vodafone Ireland Foundation in Cork, where they were taking part in this year’s Young Social Innovators Den.
At the den the students each had four minutes to pitch their ideas to a panel of dragons who listened to their project plans and having been impressed presented the students with a cheque and sent them on thereway to changing their world. The project entitled “Without Your Brain You Have No Game” aims to create more awareness around the topic of Concussion in Sport.
The students have already distributed Concussion Awareness wall planners in every classroom in Cashel Community School , they are working on a concussion awareness video clip in Thurles LIT and are also producing awareness posters for primary and secondary schools in the county and will visit local primary schools in February to create more awareness around concussion in sport.
The girls represented the eighteen classmates and are looking forward to the next stage of the awareness campaign. A class of CCS first years are helping Rosegreen Tidy Village Committee in their quest to enhance the village. In a effort to encourage small birds to nest in and around the village it was decide to place nesting boxes in various locations.
The woodworking department in CCS were only too delighted to come on board and help out. Last Friday the fruits of their labour, twelve bird houses and two bat boxes were presented to committee representatives in the school.
