Join IAA and CHASE, Win a Resource Teacher for your school
Hi everyone and welcome to our anti-bullying campaign, my name is CHASE (Children’s Health & Safety Educator) and together with my friends from Irish Autism Action we intend to stamp out bullying through the use of an online training and awareness course for children called “No More Bullies with CHASE”.
What’s it all about:
There are many awareness initiatives out there dealing with the topic of bullying however the CHASE anti-bullying campaign is different because it deals with the issue by educating our children on how to recognise bullying behaviour and what to do to prevent it from recurring in the future.
CHASE believes early intervention focusing on creating not only awareness but a practical knowledge of what to do and what not to do will ultimately help our children grow into both happy and healthy adults.
Would you like to win a Resource Teacher for your school?
Irish Autism Action are offering Irish schools the opportunity to gain valuable resources such as interactive whiteboards, laptops, sporting equipment and a host of other gifts in exchange for the collection of old mobile phones. Not only is this kind to the environment but it also helps Irish Autism Action in its mission to raise the quality of life for individuals and their families affected by autism.
This year, any school collecting over 50 phones will be entered in to a prize draw where IAA will pay for a resource teacher / SNA / classroom assistant for 10hrs per week for the winning school for the 2012 school year! To get you started, we will send out a starter pack consisting of a collection box, posters, collection bags and parent’s letter.
All you need to do is send a letter and collection bag home with each student. They then deposit an old mobile phone in the bag with their name and address and return to the school. As an incentive for parents, all bags returned will be entered into a draw to have their mortgage paid for a year!
So there are lots of great reasons to support Irish Autism Action this year. If you have any questions or would like more information on how to partake, please email geraldineP@swapkit.ie or phone on 01 427 9790.
