Book Launch

On Thursday 10 November we had the wonderful pleasure of assisting Sr Kathleen Mooney, our Pastoral Counsellor, to launch her debut picture book “Watch Out!” The event was well attended by family and friends, Sisters of St Joseph, Staff, Parents and students. A book signing featured at the event with Sr Kathleen scribing personal messages for take home copies. The picture book explores life situations where children can feel anger. It is intended to entertain children aged three to eight, but is also a useful tool for parents, teachers and counsellors who work with children. Through the use of animals and later in the book, a boy and girl, the anger of the character is externalised and a resolution is found. The book also helps teachers and parents to understand children’s anger and how to deal with it. If you are interested in knowing more or would like to purchase a copy, please make contact with Sr Kathleen via our web site or the school office.
