Second year students will be participating in a new programme with Business in the Community and Horse Racing Ireland. The programme is called World of Work (WoW), there are five sessions in the programme which will take place between November 2020 and May 2021. The first session will be a virtual introduction, this will take place on Tuesday, November 24th. The introduction will be presented by Jo Sayers, Business in the Community, and Kate Roche, Horse Racing Ireland.
WoW has been developed to encourage students to maximise their talents and to provide an insight into jobs and careers, how businesses are run and the roles of the employee.
This week in CPPS we are celebrating inclusion as we #STANDUP to LGBTI+ bullying. Our wellbeing theme for 16th-20th of November is LGBTI+ Awareness. We join with schools across Ireland in highlighting this issue. BelongTo, a support group for LGBTI+ young people in Ireland are hosting a week long campaign to address the issue of LGBTI+ bullying within schools and the community. In taking part in this initiative, CPPS is demonstrating its commitment to student wellbeing and is leading the way to a fully inclusive school, where all students have a voice. As part of the week students will 'learn the lingo' associated with the topic of LGBTI+. Cross curricular activities have been planned to invite discussion and to educate us all on what it means to be part of the LGBTI+ community, how we can support those of us around us who may be part of that community and how we can #STANDUP to LGBTI+ bullying. On Friday 20th we will join with schools nationwide in creating a CPPS Rainbow, whereby each year group and staff have been assigned a colour to wear to collectively form a (socially distanced!) rainbow 🌈 Our aim is to educate our students in being more considerate to members of the LGBTI+ community and to create an atmosphere of inclusion which benefits everybody's wellbeing.
