St. Gobnaits

All Staff

We visit St. Gobnait's nursing home in Ballyagran a number of times each year. The pupils really look forward to their turn to travel to the other side of the village and enjoy spending time with the residents. They play board games, draw and colour pictures, read stories and play music to name but a few activities. This is a social visit, beneficial for pupils, teachers and residents alike. It is so rewarding to see the children interact so comfortably, removing barriers we may have built up around visiting and spending time with the elderly. Maura and her team in St. Gobnaits run a fantastic ship, one which is the envy of many seeking care for loved ones. In an age that unfortunately sees negative press surround nursing homes and other residential care homes, St. Gobnaits is a beacon of positivity that should be celebrated.
