“I suppose the greatest evaluation for us is seeing the children themselves...how they bring what they learn from the programme into their everyday interactions with each other. They will try to solve problems in the yard; there is less exclusion.” - Rachel Burke, Deputy Principal, Kildare Town Educate Together School.
