Woman's Aid came to St. Colmcille' s to talk to Year 11 students about their poster campaign 'Heading for healthy relationships.' The class thoroughly enjoyed the talk and were able to take a lot from it, and have gained a wider knowledge surrounding the importance of healthy relationships.
Here is the feedback from the pupils:
Bronagh - I really enjoyed the talk on Thursday; it was very educational and informative. I learnt a few things I never knew before such as 1 in 4 teenagers are in an abusive relaionship.
Sarah – It made me think a lot about what made a healthy relationship, and what qualities you don’t want. They might start as a minor problem but if not sorted or ended can lead to domestic abuse. It showed the work of Women’s Aid is very important and can help troubled teenagers and women. If there is any chance to speak about the work of Women’s Aid at our talk I would definitely love to do it.
Christopher – It is good to know that if I knew anyone getting abused I could tell them to go to Women’s Aid for advice.
Tiarnan – I thought that the talk was very engaging and that the statistics we were given were shocking. I learnt a lot from the talk.
Derbiled – I would like to find out more about what Women’s Aid do, and I would like to find out about helping when I am older….The work they do is needed and can help a lot of people’s lives.
