Over the past few years we have worked very hard to promote positive mental health across our school community. In 2017-2018 we became a Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador school for the first time, in 2018-2019 we were awarded the Amber Flag from Pieta House and, yesterday, we were awarded Cycle Against Suicide Ambassador School status for the second year in a row. This award was achieved by the HEADSTRONG committee in the school.Students attended training in Dublin Castle yesterday in order for the program to be launched in Joeys again this year.
Huge congratulations to all who attended the event and particular congratulations to our two 6th year students, Sean Higgins and Tom Gaskin, who were chosen from hundreds of young people to be ambassadors for this national organisation.
