Colaiste Mhuire: Young Social Innovators: Congratulations to Ms McCormack and the Transition Year YSI students from Coláiste Mhuire on their excellent result at the YSI National Showcase in the City West Hotel, Dublin, on Wednesday 8th May. The group’s project, called “Open Your Eyes”, won the top award in their category, Making our World Safer. The YSI students have written a colourful, easy-to-read childrens’ storybook called “Open Your Eyes”, with a serious message for young children about the dangers of strangers. YSI stands for Young Social Innovators, a programme which involves young people tackling social issues in their community. It is a huge achievement to present at the National Showcase and Coláiste Mhuire was one of only 60 qualifying schools from the 350 schools who entered the competition. Very well done to all involved.
