Mindfulness in Rang a Sé

This week in Marie’s class we celebrated NETNS’s mindfulness week by taking a good look at what helps us feel good and reminding ourselves to take the time to look after ourselves.

We had lots of discussions and activities to help us with this and are really grateful to Elliott who introduced us to the poetry of his friend Graham Burke. Graham sadly passed away, suddenly on the 13th of November 2016 aged just 21 years. A book launch for his wonderful collection of poetry was held this week in his memory. Books are available to purchase from all local book outlets and Newbridge Parish Centre as well as NCBI shops and are titled “Beyond the Stars”.  Thanks to Elliott we were able to experience Graham’s amazing talent and would encourage everyone to have a read of his poetry. It certainly helped us to remember the people or things that can lift us or inspire us and help us to feel better about ourselves.
