CHRISTMAS PARTY
Our Christmas party is on 4th of December in Stoker’s Lodge Tralee. If you
would like to attend, please send us your names as soon as possible as we
need to inform the restaurant of final numbers.

We will have a 4-course meal and spot prizes. It will cost €20 per adult and
€10 per child. It will be on from 2-6pm.

CHRISTMAS MASS
Our Christmas Mass will also be held in the Stoker’s Lodge on the 4th of
December at 1pm. Veronica White of the National Chaplaincy for Deaf People
will interpret the mass.

If you require accessible transport to these events, please let us know
immediately.

SUPPORTER OF THE YEAR NOMINATIONS.
Do you know of a person, organisation or a service that has been supportive
of Deaf issues in the past year? Has someone contributed to improving the
lives of Deaf people in Kerry? Has access improved in a particular service?

If so, send us their names and we will consider them for an award. The
successful people will be announced at our Christmas party on the 4th of
December and will be presented with a framed certificate, a box of
chocolates and a bottle of wine.

BEREAVEMENT TRAINING CANCELLED UNTIL NEW YEAR.
The bereavement training course, which we hoped to run in early November,
has been cancelled. One of the trainers is not available due to personal
commitments.

We hope to run the training sometime in the New Year. We are very sorry if
this has inconvenienced anyone. We will inform you of the new dates for the
bereavement training as soon as they are confirmed.

thanks to the students and to the staff of the Outdoor Centre in Cappanalea
for all their help and support.

The ITT now offers Irish Sign Language (ISL) classes on Tuesday in their
south campus and on Thursday in their north campus. Classes run in both
campuses from 1:15pm to 2pm. Classes are open to ITT students only.
