A Christmas Concert with a difference took place in Galway Community College,Moneenageisha, on Tuesday 18th of December participants were from the transition year at Galway Community College and the older participants of Croí na Gaillimhe Resource Centre in Mill Street as part of their fantastic Living Scenes Intergenerational Programme of Learning.

All the participants of the Croí na Gaillimhe Community Model of the  programme joined members of the Galway Community College, St Vincent De Paul for a feast of music in several different languages.

Through weekly art, music, drama and creative writing workshops, NUI Galway’s Living Scenes Programme allows teenagers and older adults to learn together, share experiences and build bonds of mutual respect and understanding. A strong emphasis is placed on the holistic development of the participants, promoting equality, personal development and confidence building in both the younger and older adults. 
Dr. Mary Surlis, NUI Galway originally devised and she continues to develop this programme.

The intergenerational focus of the Living Scenes programme seeks to create a climate in which the participants will develop interpersonal skills, self-realisation, character building skills and cross-generational awareness and respect.

Mr. Brian Melia, Principal of Galway Community College, Moneenageisha said he “was delighted with the opportunity to have the programme in the school. It’s a fantastic opportunity for the students to get involved in a meaningful way with a community group like Croí na Gaillimhe St Vincent de Paul.”

Maria Moore, Living Scenes Coordinator, from Galway Community College said “she was thrilled to be involved in this worthwhile project and the transition year students are looking forward to working with the Croí na Gaillimhe recycled teenagers again next year”
Loretta Needham, Manager of Croí na Gaillimhe said “It’s true to say that young and old participants of  Living Scenes has broadened their horizons and they have acquired different skills like leadership, communication and the importance of cooperation.  They have made new friends from different backgrounds and ages. They have learnt to appreciate and celebrate different cultures and above all, they have learnt to use their knowledge, talent and passion to contribute to society.”
It was a truly lovely afternoon where all participants gave voice to their over-whelming positive experiences and memories of the Living Scenes programme 2012.
