SOFT - Supporting our Families Together is a new initiative that both our own and Stewartstown PS have become involved with. The SOFT project are kindly running a 4 week programme for Parents which takes place in a supportive group environment and will give practical strategies and tips on how to manage challenging behaviours with children and young people. The course will take place in Stewartstown PS. Below is a brief overview.

The courses start Wednesday 6th March and runs for 4 weeks until 27th March. Sessions start at 1:45 and finish at 2:45. If you have a child on the early collection (2pm) and are attending the course, they can remain at school until the 3 pm collection. Please let us know in advance.
