24KESC200 Supporting your Child through Exam Stress

24KESC200 Supporting your Child through Exam Stress (Online via Zoom)

Thursday, 22nd February 2024 from 7pm - 8pm

Experiencing stress is an unavoidable and inevitable part of life however, as a teenager’s first experience of high levels of stress often coincides with exams, this can leave them feeling overwhelmed.  This information session for parents/guardians will focus on helping you to identify signs that their child may be struggling to manage exam stress.  It will also give you as a parent/guardian, a range of strategies to help support your child through periods of exam stress.

Course Content:

In today’s world students are faced with multiple stresses with exams being one of the main sources of stress for many.  Teachers and schools have an important role in helping students manage this stress.  As per DES circular 0059/2021, a school’s commitment to wellbeing will “increasingly have a positive impact on the wellbeing of the students.”  Neither can be a replacement for the support of parents or guardians, however.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this session parents/guardians will be able to:

  • Approach the topic of stress with their children as part of everyday conversation in the home.
  • Help their child manage stress using a variety of approaches and strategies that can be adopted by the whole family.
  • Ask any questions they may still have regarding how to support their child through exam time.

Facilitator: Sarah Mulvey

The session is delivered by Sarah Mulvey an experienced secondary school teacher based in Co. Kildare.  Student wellbeing and personal development is a key area of interest and work for Sarah, and this has lead to her developing and delivering a Skills for Life program for second level students.
