Story on Resilence

“On Thursday, 11th April, 250 students attended this “Story on Resilience” with Jason Sherlock in Glór. The students came from eleven Secondary Schools across the County, Ennis Youthreach and Coláiste Iósaef, Kilmallock, County Limerick. This event was a joint initiative with Clare Comhairle Na nÓg, Clare County Council, Clare Youth Service and the Joint Policing Committee.

Two members from Clare Comhairle, Katie and Laoise did a superb job to mc’d this event with such a famous sports star and such a large crowd. However as Laoise said in her introduction there is much more to Jason than just the sportsman or TV presenter. Jason outlined this in an honest and insightful talk which offered the young people a chance to reflect on how there is much more to all of them than any one-dimensional label attached by a bully, someone on social media or just society in general. He offered them advice on how to “Be the Best You Can Be” by following your dream and having a plan to help. It also stressed the importance of developing resilience and belief in who you are.

This was part of the Comhairle actions relating to Positive Mental Health and Identity. What Jayo said through his talk echoed Comhairle’s 5-A-Day Campaign for Positive Mental Health – Accept yourself, Connect with Others, Be Creative & Relax, Be Active and Healthy and Give something back.

It was an also invaluable opportunity to remind this age-group of the opportunity to become members of Clare Comhairle.”
