The Leinster Cross Country Championships were on yesterday in Santry Demense. We had 4 qualifiers to represent Mount Temple: Emer Murphy (U14 Girls), Sean Harper (U14 Boys), Hope Saunders (U17 Girls) and Mario Bowden (U17 Boys, who we thought hadn’t qualified, but an over age athlete who finished in front of him at East Leinster meant Mario earned his place at Leinster).
Out of roughly 150 runners in each race, Emer finished 26th, Hope finished 27th and Mario finished 58th. Sean Harper was injured so couldn’t run. Mario and Hope have another year in their U17 age group. All runners ran fantastic races. Mr O’Leary accompanied the athletes, later joined by Ms Leavy. Weather conditions were perfect.
Talk on youth mental health by the renowned Dr Tony Bates (as seen on RTE),
On Tuesday 11th December at 7.30pm Mt Temple will be hosting a talk with Dr Tony Bates on the issue of youth mental health, offering you the opportunity to ‘take a closer look ‘at topics such as youth depression, cyber bullying and exam stress. As well as speaking on these issues Dr Bates will also be on hand to take any questions you may have about your child’s mental health
and will offer advice and discuss the skills necessary to deal with these problems.
Dr Tony Bates is the founder of Headstrong – The National Centre for Youth Mental Health -a non-profit organisation supporting young people’s mental health in Ireland. He is also the leading psychologist on youth mental health in Ireland, where he is a regular contributor to national print and broadcast debate about mental health, including a fortnightly column in the Irish Times. Tony set up headstrong in 2006 on the back of evidence that shows most serious
mental health issues in later life start from problems in adolescence (12 – 25 years) and that if young people get help to deal with issues early they can avoid developing serious mental health problems.
If you would like to take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear Dr Tony Bates talk publicly, tickets are available at the school office at the price of €10. Any profit made will go towards Headstrong’s work with communities and statutory services to empower young people to develop the skills, self-confidence and resilience to cope with mental health challenges.
