Amnesty 12 Hour Sponsored Sleep Out


Our Amnesty students and staff will again take to their sleeping bags and sleep outdoors in the Millennium Garden area of the school in a bid to raise awareness and show solidarity with homeless families and individuals.

This is a serious campaign for social change which will involve around 30 of our students sleeping out for 12 hours on Friday May 11th.

We hope that those involved gain a measure of the experience of sleeping rough in Ireland.

Lucan CC Amnesty Group have invited many local representatives, politicians and media to be present for the event from 8pm.

Teachers are also welcome to pop in for some of the time between 8pm to 9pm to show solidarity.

Recommended Equipment List for those taking part:

* Sleeping Bag

* Pillow

* Blanket

* Raincoat/hat/gloves/scarf/layers (depending on weather)

* Bottle of water

* Recommended that everyone has a good evening meal before the challenge

* An item of non-technology for evening use – e.g. Book/ pen and paper…

Thank you to the LCC Amnesty group for highlighting this as an important social issue and particularly Ms McCarthy and Ms Doyle for their work in coordinating this event.

Ryan Lally from Grá Pizza ran a great workshop today on pizza making as part of a wellbeing promotion, and also talked about setting up your own business and all about buying good Irish ingredients. Staff and students were delighted with the pizzas! #wellbeing #buyIrish @ddletb
