Coláiste Dhúlaigh CFE Students Help Local Charities

March 16, 2017

Community Development, General Education, Fashion Design, Architectural Design & Technology and Computer Science students at Coláiste Dhúlaigh CFE have done some great fundraising and campaigning for charity.

Art & Design students from Coláiste Dhúlaigh raise €400 for The Simon Community

Cheques totalling €600 were presented last week to both the Simon Community and the Peter McVerry Trust.

A craft fair was held in the Raheny campus where students from the Community Development, General Education and Fashion Design courses sold their goods in order to raise funds for the chosen charities. The Café & Deli Service Skills course held a bake sale which raised €200.

Earlier in the year, students from the Architectural Design & Technology course assisted in renovating a container into a “sleep pod” for the homeless. This container was donated to the Clúid Housing initiative, and is currently occupied in Ballina, Co. Mayo.

Computer Science students assisted members of The Priorswood and District Men’s Shed last week as part of their work experience module. Twenty Men’s Shed members visited the Coláiste Dhúlaigh Coolock campus and students cooperated with them on everything from smartphones and tablets to internet browsing and safety.
