Mr Cooke with David Dyksy, Sixth Year

Well done to David Dyksy who has just returned from a visit to the Icelandic Youth Parliament, with Clare Comhairle na nÓg.

During the exchange they examined the idea of youth democracy, and presented a workshop based on the work of Clare Comhairle na nÓg over the past two years, which has been focused on mental health, and sexual health and relationships. They also premiered a film they had produced.

David is currently working with Comhairle na nÓg on a number of projects, including a nationwide survey of the Irish Education System.
