Largy College have won the silver award at this year’s YSI All- Ireland final.
The group’s project was entitled ‘We are all human’, and it focused on making Monaghan a more welcome community for refugees, with particular focus on Syrian refugees coming to Clones. As part of the project the group developed an app, and have begun creating a film to tell the story of one team member’s journey to Ireland as a Syrian Refugee. They also came away with the Spotlight Award under the Global Citizen Category.
The overall winners of the competition was Bush Post Primary School, from Dundalk, with their project ‘ Let’s Talk About Consent’.
