Cycle-Against-Suicide-1We had a wonderful day in the RDS yesterday. All of our Transition Year students attended the conference. We filled the RDS main hall along with 3900 other students. The comperes for the day were Colm hayes and Al porter. We saw a big range of school projects. We listened to a panel discussion, hosted by Bressie with input from Conor Cusack, Seamus Hessessy, Alan Quinlan & Ellie McNamara. Rob Carley, Sonia O Sullivan, Gerry Duffy, Shane Gillen, Simone George and Mark Pollock also told us their stories. it was a very uplifting experience with a very strong message, ‘Its OK not to feel OK and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help’.
