This year, Mr Lane’s class are doing their NCI project in Facebook’s European HQ in Grand Canal Dock. Facebook are hosting the class every second Wednesday for 5 weeks where the boys work in groups with Facebook staff on various tasks. Last week, the boys learned all about listening skills as well as going on a tour of the impressive building. We received a very warm welcome from everyone there. We learned that they have staff from over 100 countries working in their Dublin building. They also have great food there!

At the end of the project, each group will interview some Facebook workers and do a presentation. There will be a parents’ night and party when the project is complete. The class hope to do well enough to win an i-pad as a prize for the school.

Thanks are due to Lucy from NCI and Veronica from Facebook for organising everything so well.
