16th December, 2014
Today the 6th year LCVP class had an international lesson. They organised a SKYPE video call to Jacopo Bibbiani, a volunteer, all the way from Pisa in Italy.
Jacopo is the brother of our exchange student in 6th year Ilaria.
The class learned all about the important of volunteering and why and how individuals become homeless. Jacopo informed the group how the organisation “Street friends” operates and the class drew comparisons to similar voluntary groups operating in Ireland.
A big thank you to both Jacopo and Ilaria for facilitating this experience and to Kehinde for setting up and displaying the video call for all the class to see.
Congratulations! Congratulations! Congratulations!
