Ardee Community School hold their seventh annual Upbeat Week this week – a week long series of events held at the school to encourage positive thinking, openness and well-being among students, families, teachers and staff.
As well as plenty of activities for the pupils – including a staff vs students Tug-O-War, Random Acts of Kindness, a Pop Up Cafe, a Treasure Hunt, a Silent Disco and much more – as ever, there are talks for parents to get involved with too.
Tonight (Monday March 13th), two parent-specific presentations will take place at the school between 7.30pm and 9pm as part of the Upbeat Week programme of events. Visitors from Drogheda’s Boomerang Cafe will be on hand first to talk to parents about internet safety and cyber bullying while a second talk will focus on drug awareness and information.
Both talks will also been input from Ardee Community Garda Donna Boyd, with regard to the law and legal implications in the respective topics.
As well as that, there’ll also be a raffle on the night and the staff of Ardee Community School are hopeful that as many parents as possible come to hear from the speakers and make the most of the speakers’ visit.
