Challenge to Change 2013

The Presentation Sisters celebrated the tenth anniversary of Challenge to Change in the Springhill Court Hotel, Kilkenny, on Wednesday, 24th April 2013.

This year a record 33 schools embraced the challenge to change the world for the better.

Students engaged with issues on justice, human rights and sustainability.

A hugely enjoyable day was had by all.

Well done to all the students and teachers who participated and demonstrated that a fledgling idea and a lot of enthusiasm can have significant impacts on local, national and global communities.

Ní neart go cur le chéile!
