Tuesday 21st March 2017, 7pm – 8.30pm
Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan, Co. Dublin
As we all know a positive sporting experience and support structure can be hugely important to young people’s physical and mental health. If you are worried about a young person in your sports club or have you questions around young people’s mental health we have the workshop for you.
Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership are hosting a FREE workshop on the evening of the 21st March that will look at the area of Youth Mental Health & Sport for club coaches, volunteers and parents. This workshop will be held as part of the Sports Forum meeting and its ongoing work to support volunteer coaches and volunteers in their invaluable work.
Primary schools all across Dun Laoghaire Rathdown are set to participate in a new health initiative “The Daily Mile” which will improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of all children – regardless of age or personal circumstances. In 2012 Elaine Wyllie, Headteacher of a large Scottish primary school, realised that her pupils, like many others, were unfit. She introduced the concept of every class doing 15 minutes of a walk, jog or run daily and found the results hugely beneficial. The Daily mile initiative was born and now has become so popular that hundreds of schools in the UK participate in the programme and is also in countries such as Belgium, Holland, the US and now Ireland.
