Irish Heart Foundation Fundraising Events this Autumn

OCTOBER Transition Year at St. Joseph’s CBS.

As part of their DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION class with Ms Michele Forde, our students learn about various charities, community organisations and they work they do. The aim of the class is to raise awareness, to educate and to engage students so that are become more socially aware and develop a greater sense of social justice and responsibility. Part of the programme seeks to engage students in the task of fundraising themselves for a chosen charity throughout the year. This term the focus is on. The Irish Heart Foundation. September was Heart Awareness month. This year The Irish Heart Foundation are focusing on men's heart health through their campaign called Reboot.

The Transition Year students are participating in a CPR and Defibrillator workshop given by two members of North Tipperary Fire and Rescue Services, Mr Dearan O’Gorman and Mr. Peter Sosinski. Mr O’Gorman is an Emergency First Responder and Mr Sosinski is also a member of the Civil Defence and an Emergency Medical Technician. This hands-on workshop teaches them what to do in an emergency, when and how to perform CPR and how to use a defibrillator in an emergency until trained medical help arrives.

The TY class also plan on fundraising by running a Virtual Cycle to Dublin and holding a Halloween Fancy Dress up for both students and staff at the school. We are all looking forward to the events.
