Pres Ballingarry Students Perfect Pitch Secures Funding for Senior Citizen's Trip

Congratulations to  Young Social Innovator (YSI) reps from Presentation Secondary School, Ballingarry, Thurles, Co. Tipperary who did a fantastic pitch on Thursday 25th at the Young Social Innovators Den.

The students received €850 to bring senior citizens from the parish on a mystery tour in May.

After costing bus hire and restaurants the students calculated that €750 would cover costs for 30 seniors, the students and teacher Mrs Regan would cover their own costs.

The panel of three judges were so impressed with the student's pitch that they gave an extra €100 to cover student's costs.

Students will attend YSI "speak out" next week in Limerick and the whole school community, together with parents and Ballingarry's Senior Citizens are excited about this wonderful project and are wishing them well and are very proud of the students involved in this project.
