Filed under: Local News |

Scoil Iosaef Naofa are a very proactive school across all areas of wellbeing including physical, mental and emotional health. The most recent example of this was last week when the staff completed the Safe Talk Workshop with Breaking The Silence. Safe Talk is a very interactive 3 Hour Workshop which educates participants in Suicide Awareness and introductory First Aid Suicide Intervention Skills. Feedback from the school on this workshop has been very positive and 25 participants completed this training.

“Scoil Iosaef Naofa promotes positive mental health among its pupils. The message of ‘Safe Talk’ resonates with our approach. This is evident across the curriculum but in particular in various SPHE programs and the RE program ‘Grow in Love”
