LCVP Trip to Kylemore Abbey

Leaving Cert LCVP students enjoyed . . .
LCVP Trip to Kylemore Abbey
Leaving Cert LCVP students enjoyed a hugely successful visit to Kylemore Abbey and Gardens on Monday 18th of November as part of the Entreprise section of the programme.
LCVP is a Senior Cycle Programme of the Department of Education and Skills, designed to give a strong vocational dimension to the Leaving Certificate. The programme combines the virtues of academic study with a new and dynamic focus on self-directed learning, enterprise, work and the community. Young people taking the LCVP have a unique opportunity to develop their interpersonal, vocational and technological skills. These skills are equally relevant to the needs of of those preparing for further education, seeking employment or planning to commence their own businesssometime in the future.
On arrival students had a question and answer session with Catering Manager, Ms Marguerite Foyle. The invitation to lunch was very welcome and afterwards we continued our day with Ms Anja Gohlke, Head Gardener. The final section of the day was spent in the Abbey itself. On their return to the LCVP classroom the students will now use the information to write up their Entreprise Project for assessment in their Leavjng Cert..
The visit was a great opportunity for Clifden Community School to forge links with Kylemore Abbey and we look forward to more cooperation on projects in the future.
Thanks to everybody who participated in the organisation of the visit: LVCP teachers Ms Mernagh and Mr Hogan, to CCS Programme Coordinator Ms Keating and to Kylemore Abbey H. R. Coordinator Ms Jessica Ridge.
