Update on Club activities. Jesse Stapleton and Emma Noonan went on an training programme to Malta on the 5th of September this year. They learned many games and activities to do with kids, how to deal with different situations as well as interesting information on the Maltese culture. They stayed in a youth club called ZAC house with youth leaders from Malta. The Maltese were very interested in Irish ways and in our scenery. They had an amazing experience and were honoured to be there to represent Granagh youth club. On Friday 23rd Oct, for the first outing, Leaders are bringing the youth club kids to Funworld Bowling with some food afterwards in Supermacs.
