Child Welfare & Protection in Sport Training


Tipperary Sports Partnership is facilitating a Child Welfare & Protection in Sport Basic Awareness training. The course is aimed at sports leaders, children’s officers, parents or anyone working with young people in sport. A central goal for all those involved in sport for young people is to provide a safe, positive and nurturing environment where children can develop and enhance their physical and social skills.
Promoting a child-centred environment should go hand in hand with identifying and eliminating practices that impact negatively on safe and enjoyable participation in sport for young people.

The next series workshops will be delivered by Sport Ireland tutors via Zoom on:

  • March 7th from 6.00pm – 9.00pm
  • March 14th from 6.00 – 9.00pm
  • April 4th from 6.00-9.00pm
  • April 11th from 6.00 -9.00pm

The training will enable Children’s Officers/Sports Leaders to:

  • Implement best practice in protecting the welfare of participants
  • Create a child-centred environment within the sports club
  • List categories of abuse and some indicators associated with abuse
  • Make an appropriate response to a disclosure
  • Make a report to designated officer or appropriate Statutory Authorities

To book your place visit www.tipperarysports.ie. Cost is €15 plus booking fee.

Please book early as places are limited on the workshop. A Certificate of Attendance will be awarded on completion of the course. For further information please contact TSP Clonmel office 052 616 6201 or TSP Nenagh office 052 616 6380

Scoil Naomh Cualán

Chinese New Year

Over the last few weeks the children in Scoil Naomh Cualán have been learning about China and their customs.  As a celebration of the Chinese New Year we decided that it would be nice to sample some Chinese food.  Stephen From Ling’s Garden cooked various Chinese dishes and we sampled  them in school.  We had a lovely feast and the children really enjoyed the experience.  

Open Night

We had our Open Night on the 1st March.  It was lovely to meet all the new boys and girls that will be commencing school in September.  The children got to see the school and the evening was finished off with a cup of tea for the parents.  It was lovely to have the opportunity to meet people in person and to be able to chat.
