Security Studies students have been busy with the practical aspects of their course. Both class groups had the opportunity to visit Galway District criminal courts last week as research for their assignment on Legal Practice and Procedures. They observed first hand how a court case is processed, how judges make decisions and how the whole legal system is administered.

Also, the two classes have made two teamworking trips to Abbey Hill Kinvara and Diamond Hill in Connemara National Park. Under the guidance of teacher Andreas Baumann, the students were divided in teams to carry out tasks such as map reading, first aid, meeting deadlines and navigation. The skills learned; teamwork, decision making, using initiative and goal setting will be invaluable in security type work in the future.
