Newstart held its annual AGM / Achievement Night on Thursday 27th October at Farset International. The event was a resounding success, celebrating all that our young people, adult learners and outreach groups have achieved over the last year, electing our new management committee for 2011-2012, and presenting the inaugural Mairead McCafferty Achievement Shield. 


We had live music courtesy of one of Newstart’s current intake of young people, the presentation of awards, exam certificates and progress files and a great time was had by all, as the whole Newstart community, including former staff and young people who attended the Centre in the past, got the opportunity to meet up again and get caught up.


Newstart would like to congratulate all our learners and to thank our new management committee members for putting themselves forward and agreeing to give up their time – we look forward to working with them in the year ahead.
