Mother Tongues – Friends in a Pandemic

mother_tongues

Friends in a pandemic! A project to boost English language skills, make new friends and get creative together!

Mother Tongues is planning a series of weekly sessions for children and teens who want to make new friends, practice new skills under the expert guide of some of the best artists in Ireland and improve their English in a safe and welcoming environment.
From painting to drama, from stop-motion art to creative writing, there will be something for every child/teen to get stuck in!
The workshops will be available for all ages (primary and secondary school) but will be open only to children and teens who need to improve their English language skills and for whom English is not the first language.
Currently the project is planned to take place online during term time, but we also plan to run a Summer school, if there is enough interest.
We are gathering information to find out which schools would be interested in finding out more about this initiative.
We will organise a number of open evenings for schools and parents to learn more about this project.
Find out more about Mother Tongues at www.mothertongues.ie

The Pain in the Chest

A huge congratulations to our very own Áine Murray on the publication of her book,

The Pain in the Chest’.

We here in Ashbourne ETNS are very proud of Áine’s achievement.

Congratulations Áine!

The Pain in the Chest follows a girl through her childhood, and shows us how anxiety has affected her. Using beautiful illustrations alongside a story told through rhyme, children will learn that when we talk about anxiety, we can find help, and the anxiety loses it’s power.

This book reaches all primary school ages and is an excellent resource for adults to start the conversation about mental health with their young person. It introduces the language of anxiety, allows for reflection on what anxiety might look like, and normalises talking about our feelings. It is engaging, inclusive and most of all, important.
