Successful Celebration

Croí na Gaillimhe Resource Centre held two very successful events to celebrate the 'AONTAS Adult Learning Festival'. We invited participants from current and previous courses to join us in our Celebration. On Tuesday morning many learners reunited to enjoy a free computer lesson and then on Wednesday afternoon over 40 learners participated in our 'Celebrate Learning' event. The Mayor of the City of Galway, Declan McDonnell attended to hear some of their stories and to unveil our 'Learning Tree'. The 'Learning Tree' will remain in the Social Club for the next few days. Come in and have a look - let us know what you think! :)


Keep an eye on the blog to see some photos from the event.
