Transition Year Students at SVP, Message from Eamonn O Dulainn Conference President

A chara
Déanaim coghairdeas le agus gabhaim buíochas do dhaltaí na scoile agat ,thar cheann na hoibre atá á dhéanamh aca i gCeann Arus VDP le linn tréimhse na Nollag.
Rarely have I come across a group of boys who have at the same time been courteous, welcoming and willing to try to fulfill all orders and requests for help. Their cooperation both with VDP staff and among one another was a joy to witness and experience on my many visits to the toy collection and distribution centres. No request seemed to be too much for them and they went out of their way on several occasions to search for the unfindable toy or food item.

Their demeanour was a credit to themselves, their families and their school and I applaud them for it. I make these remarks having spent 41 very happy years working with young people .
Our requests for help were back to the level of the 1950s and all have been facilitated due in no small way to the boys from Belvedere.
Beirm buíochas duit féin agus don scoil as ucht an tionscnamh a reachtáil agus guím rath agus séan ar bhur gcuid oibre sa scoil agus leasmuigh Nollaig Shona Eamonn O Dulainn Conference President  OLC Conference, Donnycarney BAC 5
