Completed trainings & Events:

Student Annual Conference (online)

This year's theme is ‘Our journey towards racial justice’. The conference will take place on Thursday 29th April

The day is an opportunity for student learning, unlearning, reflection and critical thinking as we move forward collectively and responsibly to create more racially just schools and communities. We hope the day will start a conversation on the particular Irish experience of racial injustice and what change looks like.  

In order to fully support you in exploring racial justice with your students, we will be providing both pre and post event meetings for teachers. For more details, click here.
