CTYI Saturday classes for 6 to 13 year olds are due to start up again at DCU on Saturday 1st February and at other venues around the country on Saturday 8th.
Many families drop off their children and come back later but many travel long distances to these classes. As explained on our CTYI support group page , these 2.5 hour sessions are a great opportunity for parents to exchange stories and have a chat over coffee. Not alone is it nice for those who are waiting around to have company, but most parents of gifted children run into problems at least occasionally, which are peculiar to their child’s giftedness. At such times, it can be very helpful to meet others who understand the issues and can offer support and advice. We all have a lot in common!
We are currently putting together arrangements to facilitate groups at as many CTYI venues as possible, but the success of each one depends on participation from parents. If you would like to be involved in a coffee group at your CTYI venue, please get in touch either with us directly at info[at]giftedireland.ie or through CTYI who can put you in touch with us.
