groups and two ‘back on track’ classes funded by the National Behaviour Support Services. I taught tin whistle, bodhrán and African rhythms on djembe.

I have developed an interactive workshop using boomwhackers, guitars and percussion aimed at primary school children. The idea behind the workshop is to introduce children to music and make music fun and accessible to all children regardless of capability.

The Zebabdah Youth Group for Peace and Reconciliation was set up to explore a sense of identity for young people, in the context of a shrinking Christian community in the Holy Land, by connecting with students abroad and in their own community. I have worked closely with the Irish element of this program for the past three years. In June 2008 I was a group leader in a project that brought 20 Palestinian and 25 Irish students to Ganaway Activity Centre, Mil isle, Co Down for seven days. (Referee Lucinda Packcham)
