2nd Yr Resilience GroupOur Lady’s Bower; kindly supported by our Parents Association, was offered an opportunity to participate in The Resilience Academy. This is an education programme designed, facilitated and delivered by Pieta House.
It is a six week programme which aims to support student wellbeing and resilience. It enables students to become more aware of their own development, coping skills and the various support structures available to them in order to build their resilience in a positive way.
The programme was launched in the school six weeks ago, with a staff training workshop and now the full programme is currently being delivered to our 2nd Years. Each week students are receiving a workshoParents Chequep in a specific area to support their resilience. This programme also forms part of our school’s Wellbeing Programme, which is a core to the new Framework for Junior Cycle.
We want to extend our gratitude to Pieta House and in particular the staff in the Athlone office – Siobhan, Anita and Sinead; for providing us with this wonderful opportunity for our students.
