A Thuismitheoirí / Dear Parents

We recently contacted you to tell you about how we have arranged for ‘Well Being’ sessions to be offered specifically to our Primary 6 and Primary 7 children in conjunction with the Magnet Centre in Newry.

Basically these will be 40mins/1hour workshops via Zoom over a six week period. The workshops will include activities that promote self-care in various ways like looking at what self-care is, why it is important, how to recognise and manage anxiety etc. The overall vision is to encourage positive mental health and well being in our children, especially during our current situation! The guidelines for Parents and the registration form are attached to this email.

Unfortunately we have only a very small number of children whose parents have signed them up to take part. For the activities to be viable we need a minimum of 10 children to sign up.

The form only takes a minute to complete and is a simple ‘Microsoft Word’ document.

I would urge you to allow your child to take part. It will also allow the children to ‘see’ one another which itself is important for them.

Please return all completed forms to ASAP


Kind Regards

Donal Keenan

Yours sincerely
