Description

Resilience and Me is a collection of stories from the students of Tallaght Community School. The publication came about back in September 2020 when students were returning to school after the extended closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Melanie Martin, a teacher at the school encouraged her students to reflect on a time they showed resilience in their lives to enable students to draw upon their own resources as they embraced a new and challenging school year.

Melanie was moved by what the students expressed; from stories of racism to the loss of a loved one, to more light hearted stories like failing a theory test. Along with her colleague Leah O’Shaughnessy, they decided to co-create a collection of stories from the resilient and inspiring students of Tallaght Community School.

The students at Tallaght Community School have shared their stories in the hope that anyone reading the book may be helped in some small way. There is something for everyone whether you are young or old within the collection of stories.

All proceeds go to the authors’ nominated charities, WALK and JIGSAW.
