Focus Ireland visit

As part of their CSPE Action Project, the 3rd Year Muire class group decided to enhance their understanding of homelessness to enable them to raise awareness of this alarming social problem amongst their peers and the school community of Coláiste Íde agus Iosef. To accomplish this, the class invited a guest speaker Nicki Hyland from the Limerick branch of Focus Ireland to talk to them about homelessness and how Focus Ireland addresses the issue. Nicki delivered an excellent presentation along with highlighting the realities of homelessness by showing students a video interview of a young homeless man. Some of the class then spoke to their fellow students about their action project to raise awareness of the homeless crisis among our school community.

Some of the things the students learned included:

  • There are 6525 people ‘officially homeless’ in Ireland.  
  • Homelessness is a concerning issue facing society today.
  • This figure includes adults and children with their families, the number of families becoming homeless has increased by over 40% since last year and one in three of those in emergency accommodation are now a child.
