Can spring be far behind?

Hi to all our friends, the winter is biting hard, but never fear there is a chink in the armour and while it may bellow and roar it cannot last forever.  It always makes me happy when I see students braving the elements to attend classes because it takes more than snow wind rain and gales to stop us learning we are made of sterner stuff so well done everyone staff and student alike.

We are now into the second month of 2019 and we are working hard here in GABES to make sure everyone has a class ready for spring and summer. Sometimes there may be a delay in getting you a class due to a waiting list but I assure you people are working to clear the lists and get everyone a seat at the table.

First in news NALA student days are coming soon to Limerick and Dublin:  These were very sucessful in the last few years and people said that they enjoyed them and learned alot from them and met interesting people if interested see below.

2019 NALA Student Days. The theme this year is “Extend your learning”. We hope students will pick up good tips at the workshops. Each year students tell us they love both the workshops and just meeting other students. The days are on:


Saturday 23 February – The Strand Hotel, Ennis Road, Limerick

Saturday 23 March – The Ashling Hotel, Parkgate Street, Dublin
