Sanofi and JAI recently hosted our annual recognition event to celebrate the fantastic contribution by Sanofi staff during the school year 17/18. 23 Sanofi volunteers inspired and motivated 683 students in 16 schools in the last school year. Sanofi have been a wonderful partner since the 2003/04 school year. In that time 7,985 students have benefited from JA programmes and events facilitated by 320 Sanofi volunteers.
Commenting on the 6th class Our Universe programme that was delivered, Ger Nic Gearilt from Gael Scoil na nDeise, said: “Deirdre Kelly from Sanofi showed the children the vast array of opportunities there are for them to use their talents, imagination and creativity when they grow up. I feel these types of programmes are vital in schools when we are trying to develop a workforce who are academically competent as well as creative, talented and innovative. The children thoroughly enjoyed and indeed benefit from this programme as Deirdre chose a hands-on, activity-based programme that lends to group work, active learning and self-expression. I understand that the Junior Achievement programme is funded and supported by local businesses thus I would also like to thank them for their generosity and innovation. I would really appreciate it if you could pass on this thanks to Sanofi in particular, who allowed Deirdre the time off to come and work with us. I would also indeed urge them to continue with this support and dedication into the future. Is mise le meas.”
We look forward to another successful year with Sanofi and thank them for their ongoing support.
