As part of learning about local and global citizenship, Key Stage 3 and 4 pupils of Knockavoe School are learning about community comunity celebrations. Bobby Rao, development officer of SECA, has been giving multi-sensory lessons to Knockavoe pupils about Diwali and Indian culture. Pupils have listened to Indian music, tasted Indian food and learned some Indian dancing.

“It is very important, as part of the revised curriculum, that our pupils learn to work and think of others in our community. Knockavoe pupils have enjoyed the interactive way Bobby has done this,” said Julie Murphy, acting principal.
