RSE workshops for primary teachers are taking place nationwide in the coming weeks

This series of two workshops will take place over two afternoons; it is necessary for the same teacher to attend on both afternoons. The focus of the workshops will be primarily on teaching the sex education elements of RSE from Senior Infants to Sixth class, in the context of Social, Personal and Health Education. The workshops will be experiential and practical in their approach.  Book through your Local Education Centre.
