We are pleased to announce that we will have a whole school anti-bullying day on November the 7th. Dr Brendan Byrne, an expert in this area, will be in our school for workshops with children , parents and staff. Exact times will be announced nearer the day.
Here is an excerpt from Brendan’s website http://www.drbrendanbyrne.com/:
‘Throughout my career in education I have worked as a teacher, home-school coordinator, principal and guidance counsellor.
I am an accredited psychotherapist (IACP).
Bullying in primary and post-primary schools was the subject for my Ph.D.
I was a member of the Government Working Party, which drew up guidelines for primary and post-primary schools on countering bullying behaviour.
I have conducted seminars and workshops with school staff, parents associations, youth leaders and young people in both schools and youth work settings
I have written books and articles on the topic of bullying including Coping with Bullying in Schools.’
We will look forward to welcoming Brendan to our school.
