Opportunity for families to take part in RTE’s ‘Raised by the Village’

RTE intend to produce a series for TV which essentially involves two families with teenagers or older children hosting a teenager in their homes for a week during  Summer.  RTE will then film/follow the family for that week in June/July.  Families need to have strong ties with the community and or a community based business as the experience is designed to give the young people a sample of a vibrant family and community life.

If you are interested please contact school before Friday April 5th 2019.
