Over thirty schools across the city access these programmes which benefit 850 children annually. A report outlining these programmes and how they operate was launched today in St. Brendan’s National School, The Glen. The report highlights feedback from school staff and students which shows the importance of these programmes in retaining children in education and optimising their performance.
