Today With Sean O Rourke Wednesday 22 January 2014
The Irish Primary Principals' Network opens its annual Conference tomorrow in Citywest. In a time of economic restraint it aims to ask what do children, parents, the Department of Education expect of principal teachers and what expectations they, as principals, have in doing the best for children in their schools.
Joining Sean in studio ahead of the conference were two such principals - Kathleen McNamee, Principal at Scoil Bhride, Croghan, Rhode, Co Offaly and Enda McGorman. Principal at Mary Mother of Hope NS, Littlepace, Dublin
Drawing up a will, and making plans for the division of our estate after our passing, is something many of us put on the long finger, especially if we’re enjoying good health.
But a will is essential if we want to spare our loved ones unnecessary legal complications after we’ve gone.
Sean discussed the advantages and tax implications of making a will, and how wills work in the age of civil partnership with Tim Bracken, a practising barrister and author of The Probate Handbook.
How to Develop Emotional Health
by Oliver James (Panmacmillan)
Are you emotionally healthy? Or when it comes to emotional health, do you even know what it is or where to start? Oliver James was here to answer these questions and to explain how we are all born emotionally healthy yet throughout our lives this declines and we don’t regain our emotional health until old age.
Yet all is not lost as he joined us today to discuss his new book How to Develop Emotional Health which includes the five key elements of emotional health and strategies for building each element in order to live more fulfilling lives. He also warns against anyone ‘selling happiness’ likening it to ‘psychological snake oil’ and says we are much better off setting ourselves the realistic target of being emotionally healthy instead.
