SGS Student Wellbeing

Dear SGS Student,

It’s a very difficult time for everyone. I’d like to inform you that as Guidance Counsellor, I’m available for our SGS students to contact me by email at: cecilia.mcguinness@sligogrammarschool.org or at the following phone number: 0864105036 during school hours from Monday – Friday. If you have any worries or anxieties that you’d would like to talk about in confidence, please don’t hesitate in contacting me. It’s important to remember that it’s important to keep healthy, fit and active and to try and get outside as much as possible while also being mindful of the need to be socially distant.

Looking forward to seeing you all back at SGS once normality has been restored. Stay safe and mind yourselves.

Cecilia McGuinness (SGS Guidance Counsellor)
