As part of this partnership, Luas are working with St. Patrick’s Athletic FC to select a Student of the Month for each month the programme runs. The selected student is then presented with a €50 Sports Direct voucher, provided by Luas.
Niall Cully, Community Officer with St. Patrick’s Athletic FC said of the partnership:
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Luas on our Saints and Scholars school’s programme. The Luas is synonymous with the areas we engage with and provide a vital service across the city. The team at Luas have been a joy to work with and we look forward to continuing and growing our strong relationship.”
Our March 2023 Student of the Month is Logan Dunne-Courtney, 3rd Class, Our Lady of Good Counsel Boys National School. Well done, Logan!
