MARCH 18 HEALTH WEEK

All classes had the theme of health: phys­i­cal, men­tal, so­cial, emo­tional and spir­i­tual run­ning through them in the school from March 7th to March 11th.Teach­ers in all sub­ject ar­eas worked with stu­dents on some as­pect of health. Vis­it­ing speak­ers from or­gan­i­sa­tions such as Men­tal Health Ire­land, The Ais­ling Ado­les­cent Ad­dic­tion Treat­ment Cen­tre Co Kilkenny and ser­vice users from a men­tal health sup­port group in New­bridge shared ex­pe­ri­ences, in­for­ma­tion and ad­vice with groups of stu­dents. Work­shops pro­mot­ing healthy re­la­tion­ships through clear com­mu­ni­ca­tion and mak­ing healthy choices were of­fered to a group of se­nior stu­dents. Ran­domly se­lected groups were also guided through a se­lec­tion of web­sites which pro­mote and sup­port pos­i­tive men­tal health among young peo­ple. Mem­bers of the P.L.C. class also sold 1Life bracelets and dis­trib­uted in­for­ma­tion about this sucide preven­tion helpline.

This was a very ben­e­fi­cial ex­pe­ri­ence and thanks to all who made it such a suc­cess­ful event. A spe­cial word of thanks to Mrs o Hara who or­gan­ised and co­or­di­nated the week of events
