Raising of our Amber Flag
"The Pieta Amber Flag Initiative recognises the individual efforts of primary and secondary schools, youthreach, third level institutions, community groups and clubs to create healthy and inclusive environments that support mental well-being. It unites these groups in their efforts to work together towards a happier, healthier Ireland and eradicates the stigma associated with mental health issues".
Back in February 5th and 6th Class hosted a "Feel Good Friday" where they made pancakes and hot chocolate for all the children in the school to raise funds and awareness for promoting positive mental health in the school and our lives. We raised over €750, which is a an excellent achievement for such a small school.
Last week, Ms. Delaney was back in the school and we held a short ceremony for the raising of the flag.
