In our first month at the Learning Hub we have had many new experiences in the different sections of the Hub. We have tried out new things that we never done before. We have taken part in various activities such as; kickboxing, art hub, story hub, science hub and music. At first we weren’t entirely sure how our skills would be implemented while working within the various activities but we quickly realised the mechanics of how the hub operates.
We quickly settled in with the help of all the staff at the Learning Hub, we received a warm welcome and they made us feel very comfortable here. The main ethos of the learning hub is teamwork and for us co-ops to work together and getting involved in all areas. For example, this week we were helping take measurements of the space for the Youth Café and we worked on float ideas for the parade with the Art Hub. Story Hub and Science Hub also started this week which will be big aspects of our responsibilities here. We really enjoyed our first month here and have had a wonderful experience and can’t wait to continue here until June. We are currently working on and looking forward to the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the new Youth Café opening soon, and participating in the Great Limerick Run.
