From one school to another….
…..and the winner is……
Corville NS were the winners last year and have found the programme (and the bench) to be of immense benefit to the school and it’s pupils.
Principal Mr Slattery and pupils from Corville had the task of drawing the name of the school who will have the Buddy Bench Programme; St Josephs NS Templemore were first out of the box. The second school drawn was Crinkill NS Birr where Redmonds also hope to introduce the programme.
Buddy Bench Programme is aimed at teaching vital coping skills to school children. The programme is introduced to a school by trained psychotherapists.
