St Mary’s CBS Amber flag team have had another fantastic year promoting positive mental health in their school. They have just been awarded their third amber flag and Cycle against Suicide Ambassador School Status for the 3rd year which will be presented in September of next year.
The team carried out the ‘Break into Yourself Campaign’ which encouraged students to do little things related to the theme of the month to take care of their mental health including exercise, socialising, healthy eating and much more. The campaign involved competitions, a trip to Kilkenny adventure centre, MasterChef CBS, project and art work, developing a healthy eating student and teacher recipe book.
The team held a celebration last Friday in the GPA with pizzas and the amber flag end of year chocolate cake cut this year by Ruaidri Tierney.
