We hope you can join us for what promises to be an interesting and informative talk on the topic of overcoming bullying and helping your child to get along with others, as well as guidelines for dealing with cyberbullying and technology. Addressing this issue for us is renowned family psychotherapist and social worker, Dr John Sharry.

With over 27 years experience as a child and adolescent mental health professional, John is co-developer of the award winning Parents Plus Programmes. He is a best selling author of 14 positive psychology and self-help books for families including Positive Parenting, and Counselling Children, Adolescents and Families, that have been translated into nine languages.

John is the weekly parenting columnist for The Irish Times and a regular contributor to national media. He is well known for his engaging, inspirational yet informative and practical presentation style. You can read more on his website.

There will be a Q&A session as part of the evening and we’re also collating questions in advance. If you would like to submit one, please email us or pop a print-out into the dedicated box in the office.

The charge is €5 per person or €7 per couple – please put your name(s) on an envelope with the money and leave it into the office by Monday, 12th March.

We would appreciate if you could be there to sign in at 7.45 p.m. so that we can start promptly at 8, and we will be serving some light refreshments afterwards. The talk is being held in the Robert Smyth Hall.

Looking forward to hopefully seeing lots of you there.

 

Please note that while school will be closed for the children on the 14th, due to teacher training in the Primary Language Curriculum, the information evening will go ahead as arranged.
