Free training session for parents and guardians
Delivered by: Bonita Dennison – Professional Mental Health and Parenting Trainer
Tuesday 5th December 2017 from 7pm-8.30/9pm
Ashbourne Educate Together – PE hall
Positive mental health and wellbeing enables young people to lead fulfilling lives. It is recognised that the family is the primary source of nurturing and support for children and plays a central role in the promotion of their positive mental health
A new training programme by NPC in conjunction with St. Patrick’s Mental Health services supports parents and guardians to encourage and promote positive mental health and wellbeing in their children. This programme also explores how the building of resilience in children helps them to manage and cope with the day to day stresses of life as they occur.
Parents and guardians who attend this session will:
- Explore the factors that influence mental health and wellbeing in their child.
- Learn how to build and nurture resilience within their own child.
- Be given tips on how best to support their child’s positive mental health and wellbeing.
Our annual book fair is happening in the hall this week and will be open to parents every afternoon from 12.30-2.30. This is a great opportunity to raise much needed funds for our school. Children will be visiting the fair with their class during the week to look at the books available.
This month we are running a Copper Trail. This is a PTA fundraiser where each class will collect as many copper coins as possible. If you have any spare coins at home please send them in with your child and they will deposit them in their class’s collection bucket.
Bag Packing Fundraiser
A HUGE thank you and well done to all the parents who helped with the bag packing in Dunnes this weekend. Looks like it was a great success! Without your continued support, we would not have the wonderful school that we do, so thanks again to all involved.
