Adopt a Soldier project.

Congratulations to Luke O’ Gorman (a Transition Year Student in Loreto Community School) who has been chosen to represent his school and province (Ulster) in the Adopt a Soldier project.
He along with a group of 15 students from Ireland will join 15 students from Germany in a project and trip to remember soldiers from both sides who died in the Ypres region of Belgium in World War One. Luke has already completed an essay “Why I would like to represent my Province and what World War One means to me”.
Luke will carry out further research and do a presentation on a particular soldier from Donegal who died in Flanders during the war. He will attend two workshops in Collins Barracks Museum in Dublin before he travels to the Flanders area in June. RTE will be filming certain aspects of this trip for a documentary and we wish him well with this new project.
