Friends for Life Booster session 2016

The pupils in Ms O’Connor’s 6th class participated in the booster session of the friends for life program recently with Mrs. Mc Loughlin. Here are a few testimonials from some of the pupils in 6th class.

  1. “I loved trying out all the different breathing techniques e.g: milkshake breathing, visualisation. The pizza massage was great and really fun.
  2. “I liked the expressing our emotions game, designing the happy feelings collage. I enjoyed the milkshake breathing . It helps at home. When I feel anxious I know how to calm down
  3. “I found lots of ways to deal with situations that might have been holding me back – one thing I really liked was the way that I felt open to talk about anything and I knew that it would be respected and not repeated.
