Transition Year Students along with Ms Clesham and Ms Brogan attended Zeminar,a life changing day for Generation Z in the RDS, Dublin during the week. Mental and physical wellbeing among young people was under the spotlight at this national youth seminar. The Zeminar programme was in response to research from mental health organisation Jigsaw,formerly Headstrong which found that anxiety,stress,sleep issues,cyber bullying and isolation are main difficulties hindering academic and personal growth. These factors,in conjunction with fast moving technology,academic pressures,unhealthy diets and ever changing career options present a complex and challenging environment for young people to navigate.
The students were introduced to innovative organisations,workshops,influential speakers, essential resources and fun activities. Careers and opportunities along with clubs/ hobbies and wellbeing zones captured their attention. There was also an emphasis on the Irish language and this zone captured their imagination in many ways.
Our students found the day very worthwhile and were appreciative of the many opportunities available to them in Transition Year.
A huge thank you to @stjarlathscreditunionltd for their generous sponsorship which made it possible for the TY students to attend Zeminar recently. Their financial support and kindness is very much appreciated.
Zeminar was a huge success and one of the highlights was the O’Donovan brothers who shared their stories and showcased their message in very interesting and interactive ways.
