This week, First and Second year students in Killarney Community College had the great opportunity to take part in Graffiti Workshops as part of the UCC Plus+ Programme. Graffiti is a professional theatre company which specialised in making exciting theatre for children and young people. Outreach facilitators included Mr. Fionn Woodhouse, Mr. Aiden O'Brien and Ms. Donna Keeley.The main aims of the workshop was to remind students that they have started a journey, to help them to become aware of their potential, to encourage them to aim for success in their lives, to make them aware that they need to take responsibility for their own success/failure and to explore the idea of "contracting in" to their education. Students participated in activities to involve the fore mentioned aims. The UCC PLUS+ Programme seeks to target students and to provide motivational and educational assistance to them throughout their secondary schooling to enhance their ability to compete for third level places. Students took part in many group activities and reflecting on their own aims and goals in their education. Killarney Community College is delighted to be linked to the programme.
