Brilliant work by our students who have worked so hard to transform this community project in Rosemount.

The students, who have just completed their course with the Princes Trust, worked on the Rosemount Intergenerational Project garden, thanks to kind donations by McMahons Building Supplies.

Sean Curran, Team Leader with the programme at Strand Road Campus said: “The work the students have carried out as part of this programme has been extremely beneficial for each and every one of them.

“As well as the skills they learned and got to practise, they also experienced a great sense of working in the community. I’d like to congratulate all of the young people the effort they put in.

“It hasn’t been easy as we continue to work together while following Covid-19 regulations but it shows what can be done when everyone pulls together and does their bit.

“This course helps young people, not currently in work or education, to build on personal development, learn new skills and boost their confidence.

“The approach with the Team programme is to make it as interactive and engaging as possible, spending time in a range of different environments.”

Recruitment for the next Team programme which is due to start on September 20 (both in Strand Road and Limavady campus) has now begun.
