We look forward to Yellow Monday organised by the Student Council and teachers Aoife and John. Our young people are inspiring us to choose creativity and celebration at a time of year that can be dark and cold, often affecting our emotional selves and making people feel ‘blue’. Resilience can be strengthened through awareness building and learning how to choose happy habits – a life-long process.

We know that several families have lost grandparents since the beginning of the school year, some very recently. We send our condolences to all. Every death shakes us and it is wonderful to have a school community that can lean on one another. At the staff meeting this week, we had a minute silence in memory of the Beary family and all DSP community members that have been recently bereaved.

“There is power in being robbed
& still choosing to dance.”
