LIT Active Citizenship

First Year Students in Social Care do a module on Active Citizenship. The purpose is to encourage volunteering and community engagement. As part of the module in Thurles, we run a Christmas Fair to raise funds and awareness for a variety of community organisations.

This year one group chose C-SAW in Clonmel which stands for Community Suicide Awareness Workers. One of their activities was to create a quite reflective space or ‘calming room’ on the Thurles Campus.

They set this up for the first time on Wednesday November 22nd in B160 (lecture theatre) between 1.30pm - 2.30pm. 30 People visited the room during this time and found the experience very relaxing and meditative. Light refreshments were given out and donations were received. The group were delighted with the outcome and plan to set up a ‘calming room’ for short periods during semester 2.

More funds will be raised for C-SAW on the actual Christmas Fair which will take place in Thurles on Wednesday December 6th from 10.30am to 2pm.
