The Value of Life

In light of the tragic news about young Chloe Kinsella, it is time once again that we remind our students about the value of life. The above clip is an interview with young Donal Walsh, a 16 year old boy, who had “no say in his death sentence”.

His message was clear and simple “APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE, KNOW THAT THERE ARE ALWAYS OTHER OPTIONS, AND HELP IS ALWAYS THERE.”

We must help our students understand and make them aware of help available to them. Here is a list of websites which offer support and services;
