On the margins of the GPE Board of Directors Meeting in Dublin, Ireland, Alice Albright, GPE’s Chief Executive Officer met with students at the Presentation Primary and Presentation Secondary Schools Warrenton.

Located in Dublin’s inner city, the all-girl schools share a campus with the community education center which provides opportunities for life-long learning to the entire community.

The primary students talked about what they would like to become when they have finished school ranging from math teacher to hairdresser and psychiatrist. The older students presented projects they had been working on including one on the Sustainable Development Goals and another one on fashion design and technology.
