Eliana Jupe has been selected as a finalist in the 2012 Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards. In doing so she is one of 20 finalists. The Board of Management and Staff of Coláiste Chiaráin are very proud of Eliana’s achievement.
Eliana was part of a student and staff group who travelled to Zambia last summer. While there they worked in the community of Kalomo. The students taught computers and knitting to local adults and young people. They were also involved in the building of a piggery and participated in the home visit programme. Eliana was fully committed to the project and felt so strongly about her experience that she has continued working on the project since her return.
Another senior student of Coláiste Chiaráin, Shane McCormack, has been recognised for his work in Zambia. He is the recipient of the Pramerica Award of Merit.
