One of the south east’s leading employers, Abbott Vascular, has recognised 32 of its employees for their voluntary work in the local community.
The Abbott Vascular volunteers delivered the Junior Achievement Programme to over 450 children from the Presentation Primary School, Ss Peter and Paul’s N.S., Powerstown N.S., St. Mary’s N.S., Gaelscoil Chluain Mheala and St. Oliver’s N.S. Each programme complements the national curriculum and features specific learning objectives, while giving the children an insight into potential life after school.
Junior Achievement Development Officer, Ronan Douglas, said “The time and effort that each Abbott Vascular volunteer has contributed has been remarkable. Their dedication is very much appreciated by students and teachers.” Junior Achievement teaches young people about the world of work and specifically targets those at risk of early school leaving.
