APRIL – CARRIGORAN DAY CENTRE

EASTER CELEBRATIONS

Easter brought lots of celebrations to the Day Centre this month. Exquisite Easter bonnets were the order of the day with clients bringing in hats they had made at home while others worked on making hats as part of our activities. All bonnets were shown off during a fashion show each afternoon

MUSIC & SONG

We were very grateful to have members of our local Garda Siochana and Rebecca Griffin play some wonderful traditional music and sing songs this month. Brian Flynn on guitar and singing with Fina Wurm from Newmarket-on-Fergus also provided great entertainment

 HEALTH PROMOTION

ST. CAIMIN’S & SHANNON COMPREHENSIVE TRANSITION YEAR PROJECTS

Both of these projects finished up this month and we would like to say a huge Thank You to the students, teachers, our clients and volunteers and May Moynihan for their participation. Both groups presented us with a comprehensive portfolio of their experiences and work done. Their last day was marked with a drumming collaboration between students and clients and also some beautiful seasonal flower arranging

 ROAD SAFETY

Barry Keating from Road Safety in Clare County Council came and spoke to our groups around this issue and provided high visibility vests to everyone to promote their safety while out and about on our roads and walkways

EXERCISE

John Conroy from Clare Local Development Company joined us again this month for a fun filled morning of exercise and games. Each month we have a week devoted to these activities which is hugely popular. In addition to our indoor equipment we are also putting a programme together to optimise the use and enjoyment of our outdoor exercise equipment
