Calling it out


North Wall CDP is proud of Lee Grace, who is providing Audio Descriptive Commentary for Bohemians.

Lee is taking to his new role like the proverbial duck to water.  This was just one of the fantastic career opportunities available to our L.I.F.E. (Sports & Recreation QQI 5) learners.

Level 5 Sports Course for L.I.F.E.

On 9th January this year, North Wall CDP rolled out its new 44-week Sports, Recreational and Exercise course.  Each day, learners take part in daily football practice, gym training and themed classwork. This is an accredited, industry entry level QQI Level 5 course and is enhanced by the addition of RLSS Lifeguard and First Aid qualifications.  Learners participate in multi-sport workshops and activity trips and have guest speakers. Those who meet the eligibility criteria get a training and meal allowance.

St. Valentine's Day art class

On the eve of Valentine's Day,  our pre-school childcare staff planned a special art workshop. Result? These beautiful cards and hearts, made by the children themselves.

The staff do a 20-minute art class with the class or twice a week.  Double that time if you include the prep (aprons on and paints ready) and the clean-up afterwards!!!  It's always worth the effort.  Because, as our poster says - We love to paint! 

That special time of year ...

Santy zoomed into North Wall with a sleigh-full of toys for children in our community crèche last Friday.  It was a magical event, as always.  Santy brought toys specially made and wrapped by Team Elf and Mathesons, Dublin 2.  The tree and reception area looked fantastic. We  greatly appreciate the kindness and goodwill of our corporate partners.  And the hard work and commitment of our staff - together we make Christmas happen at Little Treasures every year.

Docklands Community Day

On Thursday 10th November, the Central Bank of Ireland hosted Docklands Community Day.  It was an in-person event attended by a number of local community organisations.  The Central Bank is committed to being a socially responsible organisation and a good neighbour to the Docklands community.  North Wall CDP is delighted to one of their community partners. 

Ann Murphy, our General Manager, presented an overview of the activities that North Wall CDP  engages in.

Community discusses the Lido

North Wall CDP is engaging in a process of consultation and friendship-building with the @georgesdocklidodublin campaign in the @dogpatchlabs studio.

There's genuine excitement for Lido pool plan and the benefits it could bring to our local community.  Here's the discussion underway last Friday afternoon.   Our thanks to the organisers.
