Stand Up Week Dunamase College

Dunamase College were proud to show their support for their LGBTIQ+ students throughout Stand-Up Week 2021 recently.

The students learned a lot about LGBTIQ+ topics throughout the week and they continued to grow and develop their understanding of the world of our LGBTIQ+ community.

This year, TY students took an active role in Stand-Up Week having received a wonderful workshop from Christina Fitzharris from Youth Work Ireland – Laois branch.

The school’s Stand-Up Walls grew more colourful throughout the week as students began to fill them with posters, messages and project work.

A spokesperson said: “We finished off our colourful week with a colour’s day on Friday.

“If everyone comes in, then no one has to come out.”

Meanwhile, Dunamase College’s 2nd Year footballers had their second comprehensive win of their campaign last week.
