Raising Confident and Independent Children

There was a good turnout on Tuesday evening for the Triple P talk for parents, "Raising Confident and Independent Children".  The 'Take Home Messages' from the talk were:

  • Encourage your child to show respect to others.
  • Encourage your child to be considerate of others' needs.
  • Help your child become a good communicator and develop their social skills.
  • Help your child develop healthy self-esteem.
  • Teach your child to become a good problem solver.
  • Promote independence by encouraging your child to take responsibility and do things for themselves.

R.D.S. Primary Science Fair

Children in Ms. Dermody's 6th class took part in the R.D.S. Primary Science Fair on Saturday with their project "How does screen time before bedtime affect our sleep?".  There was great interest in their project and they had a busy but enjoyable day explaining it to the many callers to their stand.  Thank you to Ms. Dermody for preparing the children and also to Ms. Mc Ardle, Sheila and Aedine who travelled on the day too.  More photos to follow.
