Free online information sessions - Keeping your child safe online

Dear Parents,

 

Supporting your child to stay safe online can be a daunting parenting responsibility!

National Parents Council Primary are running free online interactive workshops on Internet Safety all next week. This programme will give you practical information and supports to help you as a parent in this vital role. It will help you better understand that your parenting skills are key to keeping your child safe and it will also look at some of the evidence about what children in Ireland are spending their time doing online and will also examine some of the risks and benefits for children online.

World Water Day Walks - An Abhainn Álainn

Dear Schools, 


As part of celebrating United Nations World Water Day this coming week, we have designed a project entitled 'An Abhainn Álainn' with the Creativity & Change programme at the Crawford College of Art and Design.

We are inviting the public, schools, teachers and students to take a walk along their local river or waterway and support action to protect and restore our national and global water eco-systems.

On our website, https://anabhainnalainn.wordpress.com/ you will find our Zine to download and print out and a choice of hand-drawn, fold out maps (including Cork Marina) as well as online articles to engage with in more depth.

Please spread the word and enjoy your WaterWaysWalk and activities!

Kind regards,

Parents Centre website link

 Dear All,

 I would like to share the following link with you and thanks to fellow network partner from Cork County Council, Lorraine Hogan, for bringing it to my attention.

 

https://www.gov.ie/en/campaigns/parents-centre/

 

The website brings together new and existing resources that parents may find helpful. It provides a starting point to access high-quality, trusted information and support. Parents Centre is easy to navigate and helps parents access the information and support they need quickly.

 

It may be a useful resource for you to share with your groups around the County if you have parents who need to access information, advice and one-to-one supports.

 

Kind regards,

 

Anne
