Emotional Wellbeing – at the heart of school communitiesRSS

ttp://www.ippn.ie/plugins/system/jat3/jat3/base-themes/default/images/edit.pnThis one-day symposium set out to challenge current thinking on how emotional wellbeing is handled in the education sector and to build on existing work in this area. Attended by over 500 teachers, deputy principals, principals, education agency representatives and charity sector workers, the event raised awareness of the importance of primary and post-primary schools embracing emotional wellbeing of both pupils and staff as a key measure of success. By this we mean establishing and embedding a culture whereby all children feel safe to express their anxieties and can develop emotional resilience to meet the challenges they will face as they go through life. For staff, it means acknowledging that they may be experiencing difficulties themselves and how important it is to look after themselves and support their colleagues.
