The TY students in Duiske College will study the Albert Schweitzer’s ‘Leadership for Life’ programme. It is a foundation certificate in Youth Leadership and Community Action to be delivered in Duiske College to Transition Year Students by Foróige and the Drum Youth Centre Kilkenny, supported by school staff and Certified by NUIG.

Duiske College is committed to realising the aims and aspirations of this leadership programme, which has been made possible because of the generosity of the Graiguenamanagh Golfing Society. This is a tremendous example of community involvement and support for the school.

“Graignamanagh golfing society dedicated a lot of energy, time and enthusiam into this project and we are deeply indebted to them,” said principal Pat Murphy.

“A special word of thanks to John Enright who was to the fore in liaising with the school and driving the fundraising event in conjunction with the Golfing Society.”
