During the Easter Holiday, three Hazelwood College students, Bríd Flanagan, Letitia Cotter and Nicola Madden and a Hazelwood College teacher Ms. Betty Cotter left to embark on a journey of a lifetime to Calcutta, India with The Hope Foundation. The Hazelwood group raised over €12,00 for The Hope Foundation who work with street and slum children in India. Hope have set up many projects, for example orphanages, schools, homes and a hospital, all of which the girls got to visit. They are making huge differences in India and giving street and slum children the greatest gift of all, education. The four adventurers would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed either financially or in other ways to help them on their journey. It was greatly appreciated.
The Junior Certificate CSPE classes have been very busy over the past number of weeks working on their action projects. Here are a selection of photographs which show the wide range of activities undertaken
