Global Citizenship

Jan 20 2023

A fantastic evening of Networking and Appreciation for all involved in the APA Charity was held on the 14th December ’22, in the Camden Court Hotel Dublin.

Presentation College Carlow students, Cathal Moriarty, Ethan Windsor, Jaml Osho, Charlie McNamara and Charlie Feeney, along with their teacher Mrs. Kelly were delighted to be invited to this inspiring event and meet the guest of honour and Oscar Nominee, Ruth Negga.

It was a privilege to hear from the various speakers on the amazing work the Charity does for Domestic Workers and to have a Zoom call with former domestic worker Debora Mwageni from Tanzania.

Presentation students have been working in the APA shop, A Partnership with Africa, since September as part of their Transition Year work experience Programme in conjunction with their Global Citizenship Education/Religion class and are thoroughly enjoying the experience.
