Gallen Community School News Updates Monday 23rd April .

On Friday 20th April we were delighted to welcome Shane Martin, psychologist and speaker to our school.

Shane is a psychologist dedicated to teaching people to empower themselves to enhance the quality of their lives.While most of Psychology looks at disorders and unwellness, Shanes no nonsense approach looks at investing in the strategies that are scientifically proven to enhance health and increase happiness. Shane spoke to both Sixth and Third years groups during the day and the students found him wonderfully uplifting “motivational, funny, fantastic, great, best speaker ever in school, brilliant” were some of the comments from students after the talk.

We had a good crowd of parents and members of the local community for Shanes talk on Fridaty night. For two hours he explained his ten startegies for wellness and happiness in a very entertaining and informative way. Shane gave us permission to post his slides on our website which we will do later this week.
