L.C.A & Personal Safety

LCA students with Nick Feehan & Alexander Walsh from Personal Safety Ireland

Recently Leaving Certificate Applied students completed a one day workshop where there was an emphasis on personal awareness, responsible decision making, respect for oneself and others.

Personal Safety and Awareness is an invaluable aspect of student development and relevant to students throughout their school career and adult life.

The students really enjoyed the day especially the self defence aspect.
