Students Meet President Michael D Higgins (2)

Tinu,  Bao Chau, Samsara and Diana welcomed guests to DCU on behalf of Encountering The Arts Ireland and the Arts Council, to an address on arts and culture in education in Ireland, given by Ciarán Benson, to mark 40 years since the Benson report on the place of arts in Irish education. The evening was introduced by Úachtarán na hEireann Michael D. Higgins, who was Ireland's first Arts Minister. The Transition Year students received thunderous applause for their contribution and Diana asked a thought provoking and insightful question that brought the house down! Terrific ambassadors for the school and their families. Go Larkin!
