We’re delighted to receive confirmation this morning that our application for the Artist in Primary School Scheme has been successful with Tipperary County Council. We are really excited to get working on the project with local artist Paul Finch.
The guiding purpose of this proposal is to engage the students of the school in a creative and artistic journey. We aim to immerse the children in the creative thinking process. The theme of the project is ‘Biodiversity in our school environment‘.
The project aims to create a link between the school building and the community mutli-sensory garden (est. in 2019). The expected outcomes of the project include enhancing creative and critical thinking in our students through exploring and sharing ideas in relation to connecting the school and multi-sensory garden, working with materials (recycled copper, willow and sticks), reflecting on our impact on the environment and establishing a greener footprint in our immediate school environment.
Tipperary CYPSC are delighted to announce that their web-site has gone ‘live’. It hosts an on-line directory of service provision to the children, young people, young adults (essentially the age cohort, 0 – 24 years) and their families in the county.
My thanks to all who have contributed to the descriptions on their particular services. Particular thanks to Cora Horgan, Youth Work Ireland Tipperary and to Michelle Kelly, Waterford & South Tipperary Community Youth Service, both of whom, at different times, devoted resources to progress the work of compilation of the range of services. I would also like to thank Fiona Crotty and her colleagues in the County Council for their assistance with the development of the web-site from the start.
