Welcome To The May Issue Of Our PALS Programme Blog

Welcome to May Issue of PALS Programme blog

Delighted to say April was another very busy month with PALS and May is continuing the same way.

Teen Aware Concert

Good Friday saw the PALS team take a road trip to Co Westmeath. We were involved with the Teen Aware concert in Killbeggan on 18th April. The sun was shining and the energy was electric. Teens from surrounding areas arrived from 1pm to attend this very popular event which has been running for the last 3 years.

We got to chat to teens from First year right up to Sixth year. A fantastic group of young people showing positive communication and respect towards each other and enjoying the festival buzz!

Several youth groups and organisations exhibited information about their services and the teens attended these stands, which included our PALS Programme exhibition. It was super to connect one to one with so many young people and they really showed an interest in PALS and what it was all about.
And maybe the large bowl of chocolate bunnies helped to get their interest too!

Well done to the event organisors and all the schools who arranged tickets and transport for their students.
We look forward to heading there again next Easter!

2014/2015 School Year

May has been a busy month so far scheduling in PALS Programme with schools for 2014/2015.
Great results with schools running PALS again this year and some new schools on board too which is excellent.

If you are a teacher, a parent, a youth worker, a teen or young adult and you would like know more about how PALS can connect with you, your organisation or you school, please contact us for more details.


Since we launched our twitter page back in November we are slowly but surely gaining followers every day. We feel that twitter is a vital part of our programme as lots of people are using twitter on a day to day basis.
It is short, sweet and to the point.
You can follow us on twitter @palsprogramme and we also have a facebook page PALS Programme.

Ratoath College Awards Ceremony

I am both delighted and honoured with the invitation from Ratoath College to attend their year end Prize Giving Ceremony on May 22nd and I have been asked to present the Entrepreneurial Award. I am so excited about this award as it identifies the great talents of our young business students. The award will be presented to the student with the most innovative business ideas, continued work on developing mini companies, buckets of enthusiasm and positivity, and a belief that you will succeed no matter how many times you may have to fail.
