Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Social Protection
Social, Personal and Health Education Curriculum: Discussion with Comhairle na nÓg
I thank the witness for their presentation and we will follow up on the meeting. A number of other events are taking place in Leinster House today, including the meeting on bullying mentioned by Senator Power. With regard to what Ms Donnelly said about young people having a say, I would like to see far more engagement by the Oireachtas with young people and groups such as Comhairle na nÓg. The committee will work on this and we will be into touch with the witnesses. We will also have a meeting on whole school approaches to mental health next April, and we will be in touch with the witnesses about this also. We will use the presentation made today to inform that meeting.
