A student from St. Paul’s Secondary School in Greenhills has been listed as a finalist in The Pramerica Spirit of Community Awards this year. She is one of 20 finalists being honoured at national level for her volunteer work. Lena Goumaa is a third year student and is greatly involved in volunteer work with Amal women’s group and the Islamic foundation of Ireland and Islamic relief. Her volunteer work includes public speaking at events and also offering support to young Syrian refugees. Lena will be honoured at a gala event in the three arena this March where she will be awarded a silver medallion and a cheque for €500.

Lena is a student who encompasses the spirit of our school ‘omnibus omnia’ – all things to all people and the school’s teachers and students are immensely proud of her.
