CTYI Parents’ Groups

Coffee at CTYI

CTYI/Letterkenny: A new CTYI term and lots of new faces! A group of parents got together this morning and went to Costa Coffee in Letterkenny for a chat over coffee. It was great to meet new people and hopefully everyone enjoyed the opportunity to chat and share our experiences. We had a change of venue as the canteen in LYIT was closed. Apologies to anyone I didn’t manage to speak to but hopefully we can meet up next week. Perhaps if anyone interested in going for coffee would like to meet at the front door after dropping the children off, we can go from there. Please come along. It was very informal and just gives us all a chance to meet others in similar circumstances! Hope to see everyone next Saturday! I can be contacted on gasdonegal@gmail.com Edel

CTYI/NUIGalway: Parents had coffee and a lovely chat at the Kingfisher Club while their children were at classes this morning. However, the Restaurant, down the steps directly opposite the entrance to the Arts Millenium Building, looks like a more suitable venue. So, from next Saturday, we will meet there instead. Watch out for the speech bubble logo when you are dropping your child off, or pop over to the restaurant and find us. We covered all sorts of topics today, from school woes to laundry tips, and the time flew by! Don’t worry if you don’t have a child attending classes this term. You are still welcome to drop in and join us between 10am and 12.30pm. You can contact us through info@giftedireland.ie

About Gifted Ireland

Gifted Ireland was established in May 2013 by a group of parents of gifted children in Ireland. Our aim is to pool our talents and experience to help other parents find support and advice in their local communities, to develop a strong and unified voice of advocacy on behalf of our children, to help and support those involved in the care and education of our children and to raise awareness of the unique social, emotional and academic needs of gifted children and adults. We are an entirely voluntary group and always open to new members and to collaboration with others who share an interest in giftedness.
