In line with the advice of the National Public Health Emergency Team it is regretted that the above seminars are now postponed and will be re-scheduled for a later date.

Training programme

10.00-13.00; session followed by lunch


Please give yourself the time and space to participate in this shared conversation, led by Dr Aiveen Mullally, Kate Liffey, Vivek da Silva and Dr Michael Redmond. Using a range of engagement styles, we will discover from each other the possibilities for ethos-enrichment presented by emerging policy and curricular developments. 

Changing landscapes in religious education, relationships and sexuality education, diversity of beliefs and new enrolment legislation are challenging us to deepen our understanding of what our schools stand for. 

JMB is providing this series of Conversation Mornings to stimulate and share each other’s thinking, to help us clarify our values and to find our voice.
