Wellbeing With Wally

The Wellbeing with Wally video series helps schools, teachers and parents support children during the Covid 19 Pandemic. Wally talks to children about what to do during the lockdown. Wally is part of an internationally acclaimed evidence-based programme called INCREDIBLE YEARS DINA IN THE CLASSROOM. Galway City partnership would like to thank Paul Monroe, Principal of Radharc na Mara for his support of this collaborative project and the Incredible Years for permission to share these videos. And of course, we would like to thank the person behind Wally, Anne Marie Chadwick from Radharc na Mara Primary School.
