18th June 2024 – OCN Delivered in Schools

At the beginning of this year, Féile partnered with St. Cecilia’s College and St. Joseph’s Boys’ School as part of our Communities in Transition project.

Four lower sixth pupils from each school started a 10 week course working towards an OCN Level 3 qualification in Creative Arts and Digital Technologies. Féile is happy and proud to announce that all 8 students have achieved this qualification.

It was a pleasure working with the students and the teachers at both schools!
