Last week was a great week as my exploits continue as a Mental Wellbeing Explorer:
My sponsors and educational partners The Waverley Academy, have donated another €2000 to assist with the development of the Winning Minds Movement
Our first Ambassador, Emma Murphy, made her TV debut in a vital but harrowing documentary about domestic violence
Phase one of a wellbeing wall was built with the help of the Twitter community and The Waverley Academy students
I started writing a book on mental wellbeing – an outcome I set out to achieve in my role as a mental wellbeing explorer
I started conversations with supporters and advocates about potential mental wellbeing meetups.
But most importantly, my connection with Roslyn Park College gets stronger, as Winning Minds will have its first dedicated graphic designer join us on work experience from Roslyn Park, starting this Tuesday. (Thanks to Billy White, head of graphic design for making it happen)
I also had some more amazing news from Roslyn Park College, which I will write about in a separate post. This follows a pilot programme I delivered at the college titled Mindset For Success. (Thanks to Jenifer Lynch for believing)
I should finish by saying none of the above would be possible without the continued support of The Waverley Academy team, Ian Fitzgerald at Zeminar, and the Learning Tech Labs community – in particular: Alexandra Samobor, Galina Rakanova, Dr Karl Thomas, Colin Keogh and David Pollard. I thank you all.
