They do not differ with regard to teaching the national curriculum to highest standards but offer additional benefits for children, based on their equality-based and child-centred ethos that emphasises co-educational and democratic values.“These principles of inclusion, acceptance and cooperation are highly valued by parents and children alike as they foster independence and passion in learning. As yet, there is no equivalent second level choice for students who wish to maintain this ethos in their secondary education here in Limerick. Showing your interest in establishing an Educate Together secondary school would give more children in Limerick that choice.”The group has stressed that showing support for the campaign “does not imply any commitment” and will simply show there is demand for another second level school in Limerick.Any parents or guardians interested in supporting the campaign can log ontowww.limerick2ndlevel.com and complete a short expression of interest form.For further information, visit the website or contact the parents committee [email protected] Previous articleCraft Hub’s rewards for crowdfundingNext articleWhen Power is in perdition John Keoghhttp://www.limerickpost.ie RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Print Email Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads NewsCampaign for Educate Together secondaryBy John Keogh – July 18, 2015 977

Read Full Story Dessert shouldn’t have to be a tradeoff between unhealthy ingredients and flavor, according to Walter Willett of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Willett, chair of the School’s Department of Nutrition and Fredrick John Stare Professor of Epidemiology and Nutrition, is on a mission to reimagine dessert around what he calls the Three Pleasures: fruit, nuts, and dark chocolate.Willett explained his dessert vision in a July 22, 2016 National Geographic article. “Simplicity and pleasure captures the experience in a way that is light, not decadent,” he said.Each “pleasure” provides a treat for the senses as well as a health benefit. Fruits are packed with vitamins and minerals, as well as natural sweetness, and they provide a burst of color to the plate. Nuts provide healthy fat and protein, and a satisfying crunch. Dark chocolate adds flavor without the sugar in milk chocolate, and provides flavonoids that may reduce blood pressure and insulin resistance.Willett said that when dining out he often challenges chefs to go off-menu and create a dessert for him around the Three Pleasures. He’s found that while some will send back a simple fruit bowl sprinkled with nuts and served with a few squares of dark chocolate, many send back inspired creations involving ingredients like fruit purées and chocolate sauce.Harvard Chan’s Nutrition Department is challenging readers to try this strategy dining out or to craft their own Three Pleasures combination.
