Ennis National School Mixed Media Exhibition and Variety Show Fundraiser for Ukraine

Ennis National School Mixed Media Exhibition and Variety Show Fundraiser for Ukraine

Colin Mangan an Ennis native and Ennis N.S. past pupil, has been living in Poland with his wife and two children on the Ukrainian border for the past ten years. He has seen the difficulties facing Ukrainian refugees crossing the border into Poland first hand. He has stressed the immediate need for help from people throughout Europe. Colin’s father and two sisters are members of Ennis Lions Club and have been very proactive in raising money for this worthy cause.

The children at Ennis National School are very aware of the struggles in the Ukraine and were eager to help in any way they could. With this in mind they have designed, painted and created 8 mixed media murals which will be displayed in the County Museum from the 30th of May to the 11th of June. It is their hope that this platform may be used in order to promote a Go Fund Me Fundraiser to raise money for Ukrainian refugees and Orphanages on the Polish border. The Clare Arts Council have been very active in helping with this endeavour.

The children have also been very busy working on a Variety Show which will take place in the Plaza outside the Museum on the 8th of June from 11.00- 12.00. The show will feature sketches, songs and dances from well-known movies. A number of schools (CBS, Holy Family, Gael Scoil) throughout Ennis will join together in a rendition of John Lennon’s Imagine as a grand finale, followed by a minute’s silence. Children will be collecting for Ennis Lions Club on the day and all proceeds will help Ukrainian refugees and Orphanages.

To contribute to this worthy cause, please see the Go Fund Me link below.

Resources For Talking To Students About War And Refugees

Resources For Talking To Students  About War And Refugees

Many people have spent the last number of days watching and reading about the terrible situation in Ukraine. We may wonder if there is anything we can do to alleviate the worry that this war is having on some of our students. They may be impacted by the images and news, have family in a country currently at war or have even suffered due to a war/crisis in the world. 

They young people in our classroom may wish to share and express worries or thoughts around the idea of war and refugees. The following are some suggestions on how this could be approached in your school/classroom.

Resources For Talking To Students About War And Refugees

Here is the 2021 UNHCR (UN Refugee Agency) Booklist of other recommended books with a summary of each book.

Listen, Hear, Act - Understanding And Responding To Children And Young People's Lived Experience of Domestic Abuse

Listen, Hear, Act - Understanding And Responding To Children And Young People's Lived Experience of Domestic Abuse

Since 1997, Clare Local Area Network (CLAN) has been in operation. The Network was originally established in response to a report from the National Task Force on Violence Against Women. The Network comprises of representatives from 16 local community, statutory and voluntary agencies supporting women, children and young people affected by Domestic Abuse. Part of CLANs work includes awareness building.

 

As a result, this resource for practitioners was developed.  It aims at providing enhanced awareness and understanding of children and young people’s experience of living with Domestic Abuse. “Listen, Hear, Act” provides insight on how children and young people don’t just witness domestic violence as passive bystanders, but see it, hear it and feel it. Living with domestic abuse impacts on how they engage with the world around them, how they learn and develop, how they relate to others and ultimately how they navigate through their lives. It offers insight on how children and young people feel about their experiences, how practitioners can recognise the signs of domestic abuse in children and young people and offers signposting to local, regional and national services who can support and advise.

 

CLAN recognise that due to the complex nature of domestic abuse, no single agency or institution can successfully tackle such abuse on its own and isolated policies are not sufficient in responding to such a complex and multi-faceted challenge. Good practice examples show that results are enhanced when law enforcement authorities, the judiciary, victim support services, child protection agencies, schools, health professions, non-governmental organisations and other relevant partners join forces to develop a comprehensive and co-ordinated response to combating domestic abuse.
