LAST year, a well being study of 14-year-olds in three Clondalkin schools was conducted by the Blue Skies Initiative.
In 2017, the first part of the Well-Being Study was launched which looked at the well-being of 2nd, 4th and 6th class students.
A presentation of findings from the programme was delivered at an event in the Áras Chrónáin Intercultural Centre
In 2017/18 the study expanded to look at 14 year olds in three secondary schools in Clondalkin.
A presentation of findings from the programme was delivered at an event in the Áras Chrónáin Intercultural Centre.
Dr Catriona Delaney from Archways, presented a ‘how they are doing now’ presentation on the well-being amongst 14-year-olds in Clondalkin.
At the event, Dr Gráinne Hickey from Maynooth University also presented follow-up findings to the Enrich Upto2 programme – including experiences and outcomes for mothers who took part in the programme.
Some of the guests at the event included Lynn Boylan MEP, Eoin O’Brion TD, South Dublin Mayor Mark Ward, local councillors, Tusla representatives and co-ordinators from various ABC programmes in the area.
