CYBER BULLYING WORKSHOPS
Carlow Vocational School hosted two workshops for Parents dealing with Cyber Bullying: the Facts, Detection, Intervention and Prevention. The workshops were open to all parents of Saturday Club children and to parents of students of Carlow Vocational School and Educate Together. They took place from 10.00 to 12.30 on Saturday Nov. 17 and Dec 1.
Although the subject matter was extremely sensitive and demanding, (given the current distress being suffered by victims of such bullying and media coverage), the participants of the course were resoundingly positive in their evaluations.
The Workshop was facilitated by Gemma Lawlor and followed the Cyber Training for Parents programme, jointly developed by Trinity College, Dublin and several other European Universities, through an EU supported initiative.
