It really has been a very busy January at the Learning Hub. Our plans for the parade are up and running already thanks to the wonderful co-ordination skills of Aine Kelly ( a one time volunteer here at the Hub!) and all the great art college students lending us a hand. We also welcomed our newest full time Learning Buddies on site this month from UL. Welcome to Eileen, Lisa, Hannah, John, Seamus, Tara and Jennifer! They are already setting up Study Club aimed at 1st and 2nd year students, helping to plan Story Hub’s and writing press releases and articles about the work here not to mention visiting schools and organising music workshops. We also welcomed back our Band incubation students and mentors this January and look forward to great things this April. Finally, welcome back to all our students involved in kickboxing – their 2012 belt grading takes place next week and we wish you all the best of luck!
