Free Anti-Bullying Webinar for Families

National Parents Council Primary (NPC) would like to invite you to attend one of our FREE online interactive workshops on “Anti-bullying”, a training programme by NPC, designed to enable you to support your children regarding issues of bullying and to also inform you about the Anti-bullying Procedures in schools.

Bullying is, unfortunately, a negative aspect of some children’s lives and can be a worry for many parents. Learning ways to deal with and cope with bullying situations is a key life skill that we all can develop. If you would like to learn more about preventing or addressing bullying behaviour or if you are worried about your child being bullied or bullying others, this session might be useful for you. It can give you tips on how to support your child in dealing with bullying situations. Information on the anti-bullying procedures in schools and discussion on different types of bullying, including cyber-bullying are also areas covered in the session.

The sessions are taking place next week, starting Monday the 15th of November 2021, online via Zoom at 10am Monday to Friday, and 7.30pm on Monday to Thursday.

Please circulate this information to all parents of children in your child’s school.

Each session will have limited numbers for discussion and questions, and places will be offered on a first come first served basis.

Please contact with any queries you might have.
