Learners from the Exchange House Ireland Local Training Initiative (LTI) programme ventured out to Lilliput Adventure Centre in Mullingar this week. The group were awarded funding from the NALA Student Development Fund.
The fund which is available on an annual basis seeks to:
“Enable NALA to gather the views of adult literacy students. This is a key part of NALA’s Strategic Plan 2014 -2016. Work with adult learners to gather their views and support them to contribute to the organisation of learning options” (NALA, 2016).
“It was a truly wonderful experience for all of us and a great example of team building in its truest sense” (Lorraine O’Connor, LTI Assistant Co-ordinator). Lorraine also mentioned that the staff in Lilliput were very impressed with our learners and said they were a fantastic bunch to work with. As part of the trip the group of learners and staff participated in rock climbing, canoeing and bog hopping.
Exchange House Ireland would like to thank NALA for providing us with the funding to engage in such a meaningful experience with our learners. We’d also like to thank the wonderful staff at Lilliput Adventure Centre for providing us with a great day’s entertainment.
