Portlaoise College in Gambia
20 students and staff from Portlaoise College are in Gambia on a volunteering trip. The students are teaching small children in a nursery school, fitting out a shop, and delivering educational and medical supplies they brought from Ireland to a medical centre and hospital in Gambia. They are donating a portable projector and a laptop. In total the students raised €20,400, with much of that raised by their onstage production last November of “Summer Nights”.
