Congratulations to the YSI Group (Young Social Inovators) who received an award for community involvement and raising awareness of the issues of anti social behaviour as a result of underage alcohol and drug abuse in Midleton.
The group made posters outlining the negative effects of such abuse and hung them all around the school. They organised for guest speakers to talk about issues surrounding alcohol and drug misuse to all transition year students. The group also organised to meet David Stanton, local TD who is part of the committee formed to set up a youth cafe in Midleton named 'My Place'. David spoke to all TY students about the project and the group will be undertaking fundraising activities to help set up this facility.
Students from the group will also speak at assembly to further raise awareness about the project and will present their speak out at Cork city hall this week.
