Ballincollig students bright light to darkness

Groups and individual young people who have distinguished themselves by their bravery or for exceptional contributions to their community were honoured last month at the Cork City Garda Youth Awards 2021 Among the nominees were the Darkness into Light committee at Ballincollig Community School. This group raised much-needed funds for Pieta House at a time when resources were extremely stretched and showed students in the school the meaning of selflessness, demonstrating to others that young people can recognise and address issues that are very relevant in today’s society. They met outside of school time and always made sure their objectives were met in a timely manner and are a shining example to their school and the greater community of Ballincollig.
