12th and 13th June 2015

All Hallows College, Drumcondra, Dublin

Within our school communities, both adults and learners share the need for a positive outlook on life. For learners with special educational needs, the skills to think positively and to become resilient and resourceful when things go wrong enable them to progress in both learning and socialisation. However, the wellbeing of teachers, special needs assistants and others adults involved in the school community is connected to that of the learners.


44 Presentations over two days
