We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the Amber Flag. The Amber Flag recognises the efforts our school makes in promoting positive mental health and well-being for all. Here is a picture of our Amber Flag committee celebrating our wonderful achievement today.
To achieve the Amber Flag this year, we had three goals.
Goal 1: To create an Amber Flag notice board in the school, promoting positive mental health strategies.
Goal 2: To hold a Wellness Week to promote positive mental health.
Each class participated in activities to promote positive mental health. We completed mindfulness lessons, meditation, yoga classes, mindful story time, mindful colouring and watched mental health promoting videos.
Goal 3: To hold a ‘Design a Poster competition’ within the school to raise awareness of positive mental health strategies.
Well done again to the staff and pupils of Scoil Chóca Naofa. Hip hip hooray!!!
