The Arts Guarantee is a new inititiave launched by Trinity Comprehensive secondary school (Ballymun) earlier this year. More of a dynamic long-term 'commitment' rather than an actual project, the school 'guarantees' a number of creative, cultural and arts experiences for each and every one of their students from 1st year right through to 6th year. It's a fantastic and meaningful development from this dedicated, hard-working and progressive school.
