School Enrichment Programme

Transition year students from St Dominic’s College and St Declan’s College partner with RESPECT each year, and have done so for the last 17 years, the aim of the programme is:

  • To educate the students around the area of Intellectual Disability and Autism, through visiting the Daughters of Charity Centres.
  • To enable the students to fundraise for RESPECT with events, such as Carol Singing, Spin-a-thons, Ceili, Bag Packing, Inter-School Quiz, Fashion Shows etc…
  • To widen the RESPECT family, making the young people aware of people with Intellectual Disability and Autism and the importance of volunteering.
  • To highlight the DOCTRID international research institute.
