Students in the school completed ten workshops around global issues as part of the GOAL Development Education Programme.

Following that, the school was presented with a special globe designed for GOAL as part of its “What on Earth” campaign.

The campaign saw 100 globes designed by high-profile Irish artists from Ireland and abroad. The globes were auctioned and raised over €80,000 for GOAL’s humanitarian work overseas.

Generous donors gifted their globes to GOAL, and one was presented to the students of Drimnagh Castle.

GOAL Development Education Officer, Mura Tierney, who has worked closely with school principal Eugene Duffy and teacher Eoghan O’Neill, presented the globe to the campus.

She said: “It is always a pleasure to visit the students at Drimnagh Castle Primary for our development education workshops. I admire their dedication to humanitarian work and commitment to each workshop they take part in. The globe is in a great home and will remind the students of the excellent achievement they have reached.”
