The Amber Flag team is a group of students from 1st to 6th year who promote positive mental health in the school. We aim to teach students how to take care of their mental health, promote the message ‘its ok not to be ok and it’s more than ok to ask for help’ and make students aware of people who can provide this help. The team meet on Monday’s in Ms Buckleys room at 1 30 to plan upcoming events.

Last year was the first year of the amber flag programme and our school was one of the first schools to achieve the award. We did this by setting goals such as setting up a notice board, having a mental health week, creating a positivity wall, poster competitions amongst other activities.
