Friendship Week

Our school recently held Friendship Week to highlight the importance of making friends and developing positive relationships while in school. It also highlighted the importance for students of recognising when they are being treated unjustly and how to talk, communicate and open up about their feelings. The week was very successful and included workshops for students from Humour Fit Theatre Company, literacy competitions, poster competitions and poetry competitions. There was also a talk for parents around Internet Safety and Cyber Bullying. We hope that the core theme of the week will carry with everyone throughout the whole school year.

Pictured top left are the group of students whose excellent projects on the theme of Friendship Week won them prizes and recognition. They are pictured with Ms O’Reilly (Principal) and the Care Team who organised the week – Mr Lohan, Ms Whelan, Sr Ann and Mr O’Grady.
