On Monday, 6th of November, crowds gathered in the Roscommon County Library for the launch of the Galway & Roscommon Education & Training Board (GRETB) Community Education photo exhibition. The exhibition showcased the variety of community education courses undertaken by different community groups in their local areas within counties Galway and Roscommon.
Representatives from some of the community groups who have availed of the support offered by GRETB attended the official opening.
The exhibition is also on display digitally in the local libraries in Boyle and Strokestown.
Community Education is adult learning that takes place in local settings. GRETB works in partnership with community groups, voluntary groups and networks of agencies such as Galway Rural Development and Roscommon LEADER Partnership to plan, develop and deliver courses based on the needs identified by the community groups.
