All second year students enjoyed watching The Bullying Prevention Play last Thursday, 14th March, as part of the new Junior Cycle Wellbeing Specification, which is a whole school initiative encompassing SPHE, CSPE, PE and Guidance. The production entailed a Drama, presentation and workshop over the course of 2 hours. The play aimed to

  • Challenge attitudes about bullying
  • Share current research knowledge on what bullying is and its effects
  • Invite students to create strategies to prevent bullying in their school
