This meeting will take place by Zoom on Monday 5th October from 7 - 8.30pm.
We are inviting all teachers, principals, SNAs and other education professionals, from all over Ireland, who have trained with us, and who are actively involved in nurture activities in your schools, to attend.
Our panel on the night will be: Dr Susan Gibney, Director, Blackrock Education Centre
Yvonne Monaghan, NurtureUK,
Garry Matthewson, Nurture Northern Ireland,
Mags Jordan, Principal, Scoil Mhuire, Coolcotts, Wexford,
Geraldine Pitt and Lisa Walsh, Nurture Room Teacher and SNA, Scoil Mhuire, Coolcotts, Wexford
A representative of NEPS (National Educational Psychological Service)
The purpose of this meeting is for schools to exchange ideas, challenges, successes and your experience of your return to nurture practices post-lockdown. The UK and Northern Ireland perspectives and experience will be very valuable to us, given the way schools have operated throughout for children in there. The Irish perspective will be on the ground in a more local setting, with a more recent return to school. The focus will be really practical - what worked, the challenges and successes, and how we are organising nurture activities in our schools.
The collective experience and expertise of the panel will make a great contribution to the night. And we hope that you, as participants, will share your successes and experiences with us too.
We invite you to submit questions to us in advance, which we will have the panel prepared to address. You will also be able to ask additional questions in the chat box on the night, exchange ideas with other participants in the chat box and speak to the panellists at the end of the session.
If you have any other ideas or suggestions about this, please let me know. I would welcome your input.

I look forward to seeing you all on the night!
