Well done to 5th Year student Alice Lenehan. Alice travelled to South Africa with the Niall Mellon Education Programme on the 12th of November. Mellon Educate is an Irish-based African development charity founded by developer and philanthropist Niall Mellon. Since 2002, the charity, thanks to the enormous collective effort of some 25,000 volunteers, has built houses for 125,000 homeless people in Africa’s poorest townships.
Alice held a Stationery Appeal in the school to bring much needed supplies to students in Africa. See Alice pictured above with some of the items that her fellow students at The Institute donated. Thank you to everyone who generously donated to this very worthy cause.
